About Us

We are a small Melbourne-based team that's obsessed with building user-friendly software for the construction industry. We love to get out on site to meet our customers, especially when we do our brekky barbecues! We're expanding nationally in 2022, so if you're in other states we'd love to come visit you.

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.

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!

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!

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!

Jonno Lindsay
With a background in marketing & product, equipped with an MBA, and having led both consumer and tech businesses as COO, Jonno brings invaluable experience in running a startup. On top of his contrarion perspectives, he's also quite the conspiracist, often doubting the existence of famous household chocolate brands like the Yowie.

Andrew Titheridge
Andrew has a wealth of business experience spanning multiple industries, such as Banking, Education, Telecommunication, Professionals, Retail and Healthcare. He's run his own internet providers and IT companies, and lead business operations at tech startups. Outside of work, you'll find Andrew drinking nice coffee, scuba diving, or brainstorming a new startup idea.
