BuildZoom - City Launcher (SF HQ)

San Francisco, CA



BuildZoom is modernizing the $1.2 trillion remodeling and construction industry through a data-driven marketplace built on a foundation of objectivity and transparency. Since emerging from Y Combinator in 2013, we've grown rapidly, and currently help over 1.5 million people make critical decisions about their homes each month.

This is a opportunity to be a part of and help build our sales and operations base in San Francisco. The City Launcher position is a hybrid role that combines elements of sales, operations, business development, and customer success. This experience will also breed future entrepreneurs — it will test how committed you are to closing a deal, how you design and iterate on processes that will optimize your team for success, and how you navigate complex environments with multiple stakeholders.

Compensation for the role is a mixture of base salary and incentive-based pay.

In this role you will:

    • Guide clients through the entire BuildZoom journey as their first point of contact — leveraging in-person, phone, text, and email communication.
    • Personally manage a high volume of fast-moving transactions in an organized, professional, and friendly manner
    • Cultivate relationships and serve SF homeowners on a daily basis, including regular hours and as needed on weeknights and weekends.
    • Work as part of a team that owns performance for project completions in SF and nearby regional markets.
    • Work closely with a world-class operations team to rapidly build better process, tools and metrics.
    • Gather and synthesize customer insights to help our product and marketing teams deliver a better online and offline customer experience.  

As a City Launcher:

    • You have a proactive, problem-solving attitude and strong work ethic: you succeed no matter what and never let the ball drop
    • You are a fast learner, are highly coachable, and are a leader to those around you
    • You have strong sales intuition and are excited to build relationships with customers
    • You are able to juggle a wide variety of tasks
    • You have fantastic interpersonal and communication skills, both verbal and written
    • You have strong organizational and time-management skills
    • You are open to non-conventional hours and travel (projects and their needs happen mornings, nights, and weekends — although we collectively do our best to protect off-time)

Even better:

    • You have 2+ years of experience in sales or customer service 
    • You have excelled in fast-moving startup environments 

Estimated on-target earnings $100,000 - $150,000
