Co-Founder & CTO
Jon was born into a multi-generational trades family. As a teenager, he decided to break that trend and got into technology, originally building his first software to help his father who was in the printing industry. This led him to develop the software used to display the format that eventually became known as PDF. This launched a career in using technology to solve real-world problems. Today, Jon is an "amateur" tradesman working on projects around his home and can be found digging holes on his property using his beloved John Deere backhoe.
Rob started his professional career as a residential framer. After being on the tools for a few years he wanted to get more involved on the business side of construction and more specifically within construction technology. His first company in construction tech was FixIt Service Pros - FixIt brokered residential service contractors to homeowners and property managers while providing automated administrative and payroll services. While running FixIt he saw a greater need to bring the construction industry together through an online digital home for tradespeople. In joining Trade Hounds, Rob’s focus lies with building quality product that connects the work force that builds our country.
