About us

We're a mission-led cloud-based construction tech startup. Sean McCreanor (co-founder and CEO) started Assignar in 2014 after experiencing the painful lack of offerings available to him as a contractor to run his own business operations. Cut to present and Assignar works with hundreds of customers, ranging from multinational, multi-billion-dollar companies to specialist contractors.

We’ve found product-market fit: Assignar is an all-in-one platform, now leading the way in digital construction operations built for contractors. We enable teams to have real-time visibility on jobsites to successfully schedule the right workers to the right projects, track equipment efficiently, and make well-informed, data-driven decisions for future projects.

We’re well funded. In 2021, we raised a $20 million Series B funding round. Investor demand was so high that in late 2021, we raised a $16.5 million secondary round. Our investors include Fifth Wall, Tola Capital, Ironspring Capital, OIF Ventures, Tiger Global, HighSage Ventures, and SecondQuarter Ventures.

We have a talented and diverse global team. Assignar was born in Australia and is now headquartered in Denver, Colorado, with team members also in Aus & Colombia.

We’re a great place to work - ask our team! Our recent Engagement Survey shows that 93% of our team agree or strongly agree that they’d recommend us as a great place to work, and no-one disagrees! (According to Ipsos, the industry average is 67% agreement with this statement, so we’re super proud of this).
