Rundoo exists to improve the marketplace for building materials. There are ~$1,000,000,000,000 of building materials bought every year in the US (a full 5% of US GDP is just transacting materials!), and the vast majority of these transactions happen over the phone or in-person and then live in 40-year-old point-of-sale (POS) systems. We aim to bring all these transactions online, thereby making it safer and more efficient to build.

What we stand for
The values we hold most dear are learning through feedback and experimentation, enjoying our time together, truly empathizing with clients (we've worked at paint stores & lumber yards!), building a diverse team, and driving to achieve as fast as we can.
How we've fundraised
We raised a $2 million round in April 2021 led by Kent Bennett at Bessemer, and including investments from Plug & Play, Quiet Capital, and angels. We raised a $5 million round in July 2022 led by Caitlin Bolnick Rellas at CRV and Kent from Bessemer.
What you'll achieve with us
You'll architect scalable solutions to help us grow
You'll be the go-to person on the team for the hardest engineering problems we face
You'll iterate on the entire software stack to ship exciting new features and fix bugs
You'll mentor the team to help them grow as architects & engineers
You'll work closely with product & design stakeholders and talk to our clients to collectively define what we're building
You collaborate well cross-functionally, especially with designers and product managers
You enjoy giving and receiving all types of feedback frequently
You're excited to work at least a couple days a week in-person at our office in Redwood City. At this early stage, we're all friends and enjoy being together. Even more, we think there's a magic that happens brainstorming around a whiteboard that we've failed to find working remote

Intro Call (30 min): Simply for us to get to know one another!
Take-Home Project (~3 hours): A project that closely resembles the kind of problem we'd expect you to face if you join us.
Meet the team (~5 hours): This will consist of
Pair Programming (1 hour): Extending the take-home project
Architecture (1 hour): Designing a new solution
Lunch (1 hour): A meal eaten around the middle of the day [citation]
