Elevating and revolutionizing the construction industry.

Our game-changing suite of preconstruction tools saves everyone time and money. We’ve helped thousands of owners, GCs, and subcontractors streamline their business and communicate better.

We are the construction tool and network the industry has been waiting for.

Our founding team:

Dustin DeVan

Founder & CEO

An avid entrepreneur and engineer, Dustin spent six years on the general contractor side before founding BuildingConnected. He holds a degree in Mechanical Engineering & Aeronautical Science from the University of California, Davis, and he has worked for some of the largest construction companies in the country including Bechtel, Rudolph & Sletten, and XL Construction.

Jesse Pedersen

Founder & CTO

A software engineer with a keen eye for design, Jesse lends his vast technical background and meticulous attention to detail to BuildingConnected. He gleans a decade of experience as a web developer, engineer and technical co-founder for companies such as IronKey, 8x8, and Revvim.

Solving real problems for real people

We are a growing team committed to crafting the best product our customers have ever seen. We value communication, encourage frequent collaboration, and are committed to building beautiful, modern, and user-friendly software.

We're creating a vibrant, open-minded community.

Refreshingly different

We do things differently. We're all unique, we’re all a little weird, and that's what makes us awesome.

In each other, we trust

We trust each other to execute on our goals. We believe success is based on honesty, accountability, and willingness to ask for help.

Passion with a purpose

We are passionate about problems that matter. We strive to strengthen the lives, jobs, and relationships of the world’s millions of hardworking construction professionals, and our work is never done.

Mastery through mistakes

We openly own our mistakes. We treat them as opportunities to learn, grow, and master our craft.

Diversity is our norm

We reject the status quo. We challenge the norms of tech and construction, and we believe that both industries benefit from a more diverse workplace that includes talented women, people of color, and the LGBTQ community.

We believe you do your best work when you feel your best.

    I have been working at BuildingConnected full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The Exec team is down-to-earth and approachable. The leaders here really do care about the happiness of employees and understand that when employees are happy customers are taken care of. The culture is supportive, fun and empowering. People are encouraged to bring their full selves to work, to be authentic and engaged. There are limitless opportunities for growth!

    Cons

    We are growing rapidly and working to scale, and cannot hire fast enough but that's a good problem! Typical growing pains of a rocketship startup but you are surrounded by an empathetic and supportive team that will help you out.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing, you have a winning business and you are hiring phenomenal people. Keep the people first and everything else will fall into place.
