Sales Representative (Construction)
Oklahoma City, OK
BuildZoom is the leading marketplace for remodeling and construction services. This year, we will connect over 150,000 contracting professionals with over $2B in remodeling and construction contracts and we’re growing nearly 100% each year. Our customer satisfaction ratings are the highest in the industry, and our investors include some of Silicon Valley’s most prominent names, including Y Combinator, 8VC and Founders Fund.
While the old school way of doing things involved charging contractors for every lead, BuildZoom partners with the best contractors in the US and takes a small referral fee only when they actually win their project. This collaborative model has allowed us to create a large and loyal network of the best contracting professionals in the US today. We are looking for ambitious, energetic, and entrepreneurial individuals who thrive in fast-paced environments to help expand our network of highly engaged contracting professionals.
