About Agora

Our mission is simple - we’re making buildings cheaper and easier to build by transforming the way commercial construction companies buy their materials. But how we accomplish our mission is anything but simple. Every day, we’re solving complex problems that don’t come with a playbook. Sound exciting? Let’s talk.

Founded in 2018, Agora is now one of the fastest-growing construction technology companies in the world. Construction accounts for $10 trillion in global spend annually and we can’t live without its output - our roads, schools, hospitals, and offices. Despite this, there’s been very little innovation over the past 70 years in how materials - which constitute up to 40% of project costs - are bought and sold. This is our opportunity.

Agora’s growing design team is looking for a passionate, experienced UI/UX generalist who understands and fights for great user experiences as well as having a strong visual eye.

In addition to helping bring design thinking and best-practices to the construction industry, you’ll have the opportunity to contribute to and shape a rapidly-growing company with your talent and passion.
