tl;dr: we’re hiring our first Product Manager - a hands-on, technical builder and generalist. You'll help build our system integrations and work daily with our engineering team. You'll also help us meet future product, solutions engineering, and customer success needs. No need to have familiarity with construction.

Why Join Us

  • Opportunity: you have the chance to be an early, pivotal member of a fast-growing YC startup modernizing one of the world's largest industries (construction).
  • Team: you'll work with a world-class founding team that's experienced, intense, and ambitious. We've worked together for 10 years, first at a startup that Amazon acquired, then at Amazon, and now at Agave. You'll learn a ton while having outsized ownership.
  • Timing: you're joining at a key inflection point. We're proven (we've grown revenue 4x year over year, have 65+ customers) but also early. This means you have lower risk but also huge upside.


  • Research new source systems to integrate with (data models, business logic, APIs, etc.); become our go-to subject matter expert on these systems. It’s part product, part data analysis, and part archeology.
  • Research and define structure for new unified data models we launch (schemas, interrelations with other models, how to standardize each across dozens of systems, etc.).
  • Write detailed documentation (e.g. runbooks, FAQs) explaining source systems, data models, and API features for internal and external reference.
  • Troubleshoot ad hoc issues with integrations and data models, helping our software engineers debug and resolve errors.
  • Test new API features and provide feedback to our software engineers; determine ways to improve and automate integrations work over time.
  • Help our customers launch and have a delightful experience with our API (e.g. by attending Customer Success calls to answer integration-related questions).
  • Stretch duties:
    • Assist sales team in customer demos, showing product functionality, refining customer requirements, and driving toward winning their business.
    • Produce dashboards (e.g. showing API performance, customer metrics) for team review during weekly meetings.
    • Help translate customer needs to detailed product requirements our software engineers can code against.
  • No need to have: prior experience with Construction or at B2B SaaS/dev tools companies


  • Hands-on: you'll be a full-time builder, not a manager. You must love operating in the messy weeds of nuanced systems, understanding their complexity and simplifying it for our customers.
  • Technical: no need to code, but you must have at least 1 year experience with APIs, data models, SQL, Postman. The more, the better.
  • Generalist: you’ll work across many threads in a dynamic role with potential for even wider scope as we grow.
  • 1+ year experience in software: at least 1 year of full-time experience working for a software company in a data analysts or product role. We’re open to exceptional new grads with substantive internships. We don’t have a cap on experience, but want someone hungry and has room to grow.
  • High ownership + conscientiousness: ability to manage many threads at once without sacrificing quality.
  • Meticulous attention to detail: you are a structured thinker who nerds-out on nuances, accounts for edge cases, and tests your work thoroughly before calling it done.
  • Clear + concise communication: oral and written, must love writing crisp docs for internal + external reference.
  • Uncanny ability to deliver results: you get the job done consistently, doing any task needed to deliver on time.
  • In-person: pumped to work in-person in SF 5 days per week.
  • Nice to have:
    • Experience building technical products (e.g. APIs, developer tools) alongside software engineers and shipping products on tight timelines.
    • Experience interfacing with customers (e.g. running user interviews, demoing SaaS products).
    • Knowledge of accounting/finance, since many of our API use-cases relate to this domain.


  • Healthcare: we cover 90% of your healthcare costs with several plan options.
  • 401k: we match 100% of your contributions, up to 4% of annual salary.
  • Workspace: $1,500 to spend on items like chairs, desks, monitors, etc.
  • Relocation: sizable relocation bonus for folks currently located outside of the Bay Area.
  • Gym: on-site gym with Peloton, squat rack, Tempo, Yoga setup, and more.
  • Visa: we sponsor Visas (H1B, TN, etc.) for candidates who are a good fit!
