Our Story

The Story Behind Us

Buildertrend was founded in 2006 as a result of a simple observation: Residential construction companies needed a user-friendly, web-based software. Software to help them build more projects, build them faster, reduce costly communication errors, and ultimately maximize customer satisfaction. While the system has expanded and become the most widely used and comprehensive cloud system in residential construction, our core principles about customer service have not changed. At the end of the day, we are a customer service company, we just happen to have the best residential construction software in the world.

Our People And Our Culture

Buildertrend has grown its team to over 250 employees. Our 110,000 sq-ft. headquarters, located on our 14 acre campus in Omaha, Nebraska was designed with employee satisfaction as the #1 priority. We're proud to have built a team environment where hard work is rewarded. We've also proven that work can and should be fun. After all, you spend as many "awake hours" at work as at home! Our state of the art facilities include two fitness rooms, as well as employee break areas equipped with ping pong tables, video game nooks, pool tables, putting greens, and soda fountains to name a few. Every Friday afternoon the entire team is treated to free lunch from great Omaha restaurants, where we get a chance to build relationships far deeper than just "co-workers."
