Why zlien?

We empower contractors to always get what they earn, and it’s our cause to kill liens, slow payment, and bad outcomes. Our software platform makes lien rights in the construction industry simple, so contractors and suppliers can complete projects on time and with the peace of mind that they are going to get paid.

We can't shake up the dynamic of a billion dollar industry without a high performing sales team executing at the highest level in the industry, with ambitious and outstanding key players. A career in sales creates an exciting path to leadership and the opportunity for development either in a high-growth company like zlien or as an entrepreneur. Sound like your kind of career?
