X3 Builders is looking for a motivated Job Captain to develop and deliver innovative workspace designs. Working closely with the Head of Architecture, the Job Captain is responsible for assisting with documentation, design and coordination on multiple projects start to finish.

Our Vision

X3 Builders is a technology-enabled general contractor focused on vertical integration and agile project delivery through software automation. Our in-house architects, project managers and software engineers work together building internal tools to deliver construction projects from conceptual design to completion. We’re raising the bar in construction by rethinking standard processes, improving pricing and schedule certainty and offering more consistency across our clients’ portfolios. Our vision is to become completely vertically integrated with greater control and insight over design, construction and the supply chain.


About X3 Builders

X3 Builders was founded by two construction project managers that were determined to find a better way to deliver projects. Tired of the inefficiencies plaguing the construction industry, they created a payment application platform and launched it after graduating from Y Combinator S17. In 2018 the company pivoted to X3, building on top of our pay app software to create a complete project management suite that is used to build our projects today.

We’re backed by Y Combinator — one of the most respected technology accelerators, with portfolio companies including Airbnb, Dropbox and Plangrid. We’ve completed many successful projects with renowned developers and have a clear path to scaling the business.
