About BuildOps:

BuildOps is a fast-paced, high-growth startup, committed to transforming a $30-billion industry through our all-in-one platform. Leveraging the latest technology, we’re taking commercial contractors from the world of pen and paper operations to digitized, efficient, data-driven business.

  • Develop and execute on quarterly KPIs in line with sales goals.
  • Coordinate efforts across our various freelance contractors including designers, web developers, and digital media experts.
  • Occasional travel to industry trade shows, customer go-lives, etc.

Required Experience & Skills:

  • 5-8 years’ experience in a related position, ideally at a SaaS startup or agency.

  • Efficient and effective problem-solving capabilities with strong critical thinking skills.
  • Demonstrated ability to succeed in a challenging, fast-paced environment.
  • B.A. or B.S. degree in a related field.


  • Familiarity with the commercial contractor/MEP industry.
