About austin

As architects, me and my business partner Austin Tragni have years of experience in professionally designing and decorating places. We have used all our experience and knowledge in creating a very efficient, useful and fun social e-commerce site. In Assembld, you can discover great products that are hand-picked by designers; collect and organize your library like no-other website; and visualize your shopping lists on our Assembly boards. Assembld has also many built-in collaboration tools allowing you to work on your project with a friend or designer. We believe Assembld will drastically improve the decoration experience for all our users.

We are Architects - not programmers nor IT founders. However; Assembld is built based on the decoration process of design professionals. I believe as Architects/Interior Designers; we are in the best position to develop a useful and efficient 'design tool' - which we have identified as what is lacking in the market. We also believe that as experienced Project Managers / Partner in Architecture firms; we have the ability to manage a team towards a tight deadline; deal with stress; and execute a high quality final product that stays true to the core concept despite all the challenges. We also think that Architectural culture embodies many other valuable qualities for a web startup team such as: the ability to address problems creatively and to see them as design opportunities; never sacrificing User Experience while creating an innovative unique product; ability to allocate right amount of budget and time to different parts of the project for the highest impact product; understanding the needs of totally unique customers and programs in a short amount of time and addressing them on a timely manner. Architectural practice requires top level creativity and professionalism. We believe we can utilize this experience to run Assembld successfully.

We are searching for a technical cofounder to join the team and help us grow assembld.
