Built is a growth-stage company at the intersection of FinTech and PropTech. We are on a mission to change the way the world gets built with technology and services that streamline the $1.3T U.S. construction industry. We strive to empower lenders, owners, builders, and vendors with innovative software, payment products & services that enable participants to manage risk, maximize productivity and collaboration to ensure better cost management as capital flows into and throughout the construction industry. Founded in 2015, Built now serves more than 140 of the top financial institutions in the US and Canada, including 35+ of the top 100 US construction lenders.

In addition to our recent $125M Series D funding and $1.5B valuation, we're proud to have been named one of Forbes' Top 100 Startup Employers in America for 2021. Bringing on the "best talent in the world" is at the forefront of our continued growth trajectory-and we want you to be part of it.

We believe in hiring professionals who aspire to solve complex problems in a complex industry through technology. We value individuals who are ambitious, passionate, self-motivated and have the ability to create opportunities at every turn.

As a result, there will be some amount of traditional operations until we get as close to automating those away as we can.
