About Kojo

It's time to build. Whether it's creating more housing, upgrading our infrastructure, or adapting to climate change, one thing is clear: the construction industry is at the center of solving our biggest problems. We’re making buildings cheaper and easier to build by transforming the way commercial construction companies buy their materials. Join us.

Founded in 2018, Kojo is now one of the fastest-growing construction technology companies in the world. Construction accounts for $10 trillion in global spend annually and we can’t live without its output - our roads, schools, hospitals, and offices. Despite this, there’s been very little innovation over the past 70 years in how materials - which constitute up to 40% of project costs - are bought and sold. This is our opportunity.

This role will include:

  • Playing a critical and versatile role in shipping key aspects of our application

  • Being an integral part of building engineering, product, and company roadmaps

  • Co-owing the delivery of a product that transforms the construction industry

  • Expanding on Kojo’s engineering culture through process improvement, regular learning sessions, participation in hiring new employees, etc.
