About Us

Hey there! 👋 We're BuildPass. Kickstarted in Melbourne in 2021, and since then, we've broadened our horizons. See those faces in the photo? That’s our powerhouse team making construction headaches a thing of the past. While Melbourne is our birthplace, our heart and hustle are now nationwide. We’re about genuine ties and next-level ambition. Got feedback? We're all ears. Let’s make construction smoother, together.


our mission

What we do

01If you want to use a product that is developed by a local Australian team of software engineers that will listen to and implement your feedback, then you've come to the right place!
02Our primary focus is on the user experience of everyone who engages with the platform - from business owners in head office to tradespeople on site.
03It doesn't make sense to us why construction is the last industry to get modern software, so we're changing that.
04With strong backgrounds in design and engineering, we're not building another clunky construction product.

The BuildPass team

Matt Perrott
Switching from civil engineering into the software world, Matt has always been fascinated by construction tech. Most of his time is spent with builders and subcontractors brainstorming better ways to manage safety, but when he's not he'll be finding his way to the coast for a surf.
Aaron Vanston
Having managed large teams of software developers at SEEK and realestate.com.au, Aaron is applying that experience to construction. When he's not cutting clean code you can find all 6'7" of him laying spikes on the volleyball field.
James Formica
James is a rare kind of unicorn developer. He's got the trifecta of being able to make features pretty, performant and functional. If he's not improving the BuildPass codebase, he's probably shredding away on one of his many guitars, or trying to figure out what his 20 year old cat Chloe wants.
Tessa Kent
She's a graphic designer, but like any good startup employee, Tessa can wear many hats. From graphic design, to user experience, to social media and photography - she's got it all!
Raf Valerio
Raf is no stranger to construction, joining us from Bunnings where he lead a technical team there. He's an experienced developer the can work across backend, frontend and mobile. Originally hailing from the land of Brazil, Raf is a connoisseur of Brazilian BBQ. He's also a fitness buff!
Jin Chen
Jin is a multi-talented product designer with 10+ years experience in the industry. She will be working on user experience of all facets of our platform. Outside of work, Jin has two adorable kids that keep her busy. And a fun fact: she used to play the French Horn!
Gilad Goldman
Gilad is our customer superstar with a background in construction AND technology he can walk in both worlds. Gilad loves to hear about how customers use BuildPass and works closely with them to ensure they are getting the most out of the platform. When Gilad isn't at work he is probably at a gig or walking his dog Bob Bob.
Jon Cleary
JC joins us as highly experienced software engineer from SEEK. He's built a range of world class systems for them and he's now applying that knowledge to the construction industry.
Jon Benjamin
Having worked as a contract administrator at both small and large builders, Jon has developed a unique overview of the industry. You won't find a guy that gets more excited about construction tech!
