BuildZoom is seeking to revolutionize the $1 trillion construction industry. We came out of Y Combinator in '13, and have raised venture capital funding from some of the world’s most respected investors including; Y Combinator, Founder's Fund, Formation 8 and 8VC.
We've discovered that construction is currently 10% of the world's GDP, and we are currently distributing over $1 billion/year in projects, with over 1 million website visitors per month in the United States alone. We are on pace to reach ~$2.3 billion in GMV this year. With the tap of a button, we will send 3 or more contractors to your door, in as little as an hour. We support virtually any construction project - commercial or residential - from a small electrical outlet installation to custom built homes.
However, the best thing about BuildZoom isn’t our product, it’s our incredible team. We maintain a fun, supportive environment focused on learning, teaching, and building cool things.
By gathering and analyzing information on 3.5 million licensed contractors and 100 million building permits, the company has brought new levels of transparency and accountability to a notoriously difficult industry.
Our team is passionate about travel - between us we've hiked to Everest Base Camp, toured almost every corner of South East Asia, traveled the United States for a year in a Winnebago, and visited 80+ countries. If you love travel, this is the place for you.

Why? It's a question you should ask yourself often. Are you spending your brief moment in the universe focused on what matters most?
We ask ourselves this question every day. We think what matters most is the well-being of oneself and one's loved ones. Don't believe us? Tell us how much time you spend thinking about anything else next time you or someone you care about is sick.
The best minds of our generation are building companies to peddle mobile ads, share photos, and enable governments to spy on their citizens. The global internet/mobile infrastructure gives us the ability, and the responsibility, to solve many of humankind's most challenging problems.
It's why we're building the Human Diagnosis Project, a single open system that maps any human health problem to its possible diagnoses. Join us in building the future of medicine.
Our customers are researchers at leading pharma/biotech/academic labs all over the world. Some of our largest user bases exist at institutions like Stanford, Columbia, University College London, and thousands more.
We are busy building a platform that will help life-science researchers manage resources in their labs, streamline communication among lab members, discover and review products, store data, and more. This is no small undertaking. If we succeed we will fundamentally accelerate the pace of scientific discovery. If you wanted to use your technical skills on real world problems that make a difference to real people, here is your chance.
You will be a part of a small super-smart closely-knit team. Ajoy and Jayant know each other from their days at IIT (10+ years). Adam and Jayant know each other from the time they were both at Columbia University (5+ years). We get along really well and are looking for people who are ridiculously smart, friendly, and want to work hard to make a difference.
You will work out of our sunny office in downtown Palo Alto [https://www.quartzy.com/careers] with great perks, a fun-loving team, and an opportunity to work on something huge.
Since developers often do not have any meaningful exposure to the life-sciences market I think that it is worthwhile to give an example of the size of the opportunity. Consider Veeva Systems' recent IPO [http://techcrunch.com/2013/10/16/veeva-ipo/]. Veeva develops collaboration tools for large pharma. Stunningly their market cap is $2.5B after raising only $7M. We are tacking an opportunity larger than Veeva.
The Quartzy platform creates an online distribution channel for the life-sciences market. Disrupting the life-sciences market is a huge opportunity. We are VC-backed with funding from Khosla Ventures along with prominent angels like David Sacks, Jeremy Stoppelman and others.
Fountain is a hiring automation platform for companies employing lots of hourly workers — think delivery companies, retail, call centers, and service marketplaces.
On the surface, we're a b2b software tool. Underneath the hood, we've processed millions of applicants, serving as the back end handling of our customer's hourly-workforce applicants, and we've started to build algorithms that can predict hire rates and retention of applicants in a service economy that is characterized by unpredictable labor.
We’re hungry and hellbent.
Sure, Fountain is a startup. Yes, we’re a tech company. Our product is a (much-loved) platform. But what we build and plan on building fundamentally affects the way people work in the future. We need someone who cares about solving the inefficiencies in the modern workforce. We want someone who is excited by the prospect of breaking the status quo of an old, unchanged industry.
Work is changing - people are switching jobs frequently, many work for multiple companies at once, and more and more millennials are opting to become independent contractors. Fountain is the layer that powers the way these people are hired for new and old companies alike.
We are a young company backed by some of the Valley’s top angels investors and VC firms, moving at a breakneck speed. We have one chance at this enormous opportunity, and we’re leading the charge. We want you to join us.
Fountain now serves most of the leading on-demand companies. But that’s just the start of a long journey. The ride will be fast, and it will be relentless. The days will be long, the future scary and uncertain at times, but our job is immensely rewarding. It will be good, earnest work. But hey, we promise it will never be boring.
As one of our early team members, you’ll help lead the team and set the course of this company forever.
