Build U. Scholarship

Great companies are built on a shared set of values. Over time, those values may evolve and grow, but the underlying message stays the same: create a great product that customers love.

At least, that’s what we believe to be true at Buildium. More specifically, we believe that the most successful companies:

Focus on customers first

Are helpful and supportive

Communicate openly and honestly

Are nimble and flexible

Take initiative and work hard

Are passionate and have fun

As members of the tech community, we also believe that the best engineers, designers, and developers define themselves by the above values. Which is why we award one $2,500 scholarship each semester to a student who tells us about a company they admire that exemplifies any of the above core values.
