“I began at ProBuild as an IT intern for the ERP project. I was given the tremendous opportunity to gain real business experience while earning my degree. I particularly appreciate the fact that ProBuild put my education first and truly helped me develop my skills for the future. After graduation, I was offered a full time position where I helped create and maintain the ERP training program. I have greatly enjoyed working on the ERP team and learning the scope of a large software implementation. ProBuild encourages my professional development and continues to present new challenges and opportunities.”
Kendra D, Training Delivery Manager, Denver
“I’ve been with ProBuild for 12 years and have been able to grow with the company through several different roles. I was originally hired as Administrative Support and was quickly moved to an Inside Sales position where I was fortunate enough to work with several people with tremendous industry experience. Their experience and willingness to transfer their knowledge allowed me to learn the industry and develop the skills that I needed to be successful early in my career. I truly believe that hard work is recognized in this organization; which to me means there is always opportunity within the company for those that choose to work for it. After I spent several years as an Inside Sales Coordinator I moved to the Corporate Office and worked in Supply Chain as a Buyer where I once again was given the opportunity to learn from those around me. I’m excited to say that currently I am Training Delivery Manager for ProEdge and everyday I draw on the experiences and lessons learned from the field. Because ProBuild cares about employee growth and development I look forward to continuing my career here at ProBuild.”
Katie W, ERP Intern, Denver
“I started with ProBuild last summer as an intern and liked the program so much that I came back for a second internship summer. The internship program changed significantly between the two years and each year gets better and better. This is not an internship where you do busy work and there are great opportunities to add a lot of value. My internship has given me numerous hard and soft skills that I never could have learned in the classroom. The people at ProBuild are great and I have made some lifelong networking connections as well as friends. I really felt that the ProBuild internship provides an exciting environment to work in and offers many opportunities to grow both personally and professionally.”
Kevin, Compliance & Ethics Manager
“I came to work at ProBuild over 2 years ago. Besides my military experience I have been in the building materials supply industry my entire career. When I was offered the opportunity to work with ProBuild I was excited to be a part of an organization that has the potential to be a game changer in this industry. This industry needs a true leader, not a leader based off high revenue numbers, but a leader that “cuts the path” and changes the way we bring value to our builders. During my interview and still today I am continually impressed with the aptitude and business professionalism that I see in our employees. This organization is building from scratch, we are designing this company to win, and I like being a part of that.”

Matthew F, ProEdge - Product Development
“I started working for ProBuild as a ProEdge ‘ERP’ Intern following my junior year of college. It was a great learning experience and led to my next position with ProBuild as a campus ambassador. While I finished my degree at the University of Colorado, I helped organize guest speaker events at the business school with ProBuild executives, as well as initiate ProBuild sponsored student projects. This led to a full time offer after I graduated. I am now a member on the ProEdge ‘ERP’ Product Development team. This position involves bridging the gaps between the users in the field and the developers writing the software program. I work with great people from both sides of the spectrum providing me with a strong background to advance my career. The opportunities, along with the supportive atmosphere really encourage success. I am excited to see where ProBuild heads next.”
Paul S, General Manager
“Why ProBuild? Working for ProBuild is like going to Top Gun school for the building material industry. It’s fascinating to me how ProBuild goes out and finds the “best of the best” in this industry and other industries, to incorporate them into our team. As a fairly new General Manager, it’s refreshing working for a company that sincerely wants me to be successful, and has such a commitment to continuous training and development. I am able to run my business with the support & guidance of my boss, but with the autonomy to do the right thing for my employees & my customers, using my experience and imagination.”
Ernest W, General Manager
“What I love about ProBuild is that I have the autonomy to develop and maintain an atmosphere of a safe, rewarding, enjoyable working environment. I answer to myself on all aspects of business controls as in budgeting, P&L results, safe working conditions and the longevity of Employment of my team. Interaction with our customers is highly encouraged and enjoyed by myself and my team. ProBuild in short is a fun and rewarding company to be successful with.”
Deena B, Office/Credit Manager
“Since I love working with people and have always worked in retail, when I moved to Texas five and a half years ago, I naturally looked for a retail sales position. I landed a job with Bracht Lumber Company in their retail gift store. A year later, the company sold to Lanoga and eventually closed the gift store. The gift store employees were all given jobs at the lumber yard/hardware store, now ProBuild. During the course of my employment, I’ve had the opportunity to work in inventory control, purchasing, accounts payable and eventually was promoted to office/credit manager of the location. I am grateful to be working for a company that rewards hard work. What’s exciting to me about ProBuild is the long term outlook expressed by our company’s leadership. I feel certain of our company’s continued growth and expansion. I look forward to a long and satisfying career here.”

David M, Asst. General Manager
“I was first hired by Copeland Lumber back in 1992 as “student part-time”. Since then, I have worked for a total of 4 different lumber suppliers, continuing with ProBuild and am now experiencing success as Assistant General Manager. I plan to be with ProBuild as a career choice. I came into this industry with little experience, yet I have excelled and have been recognized. This is, I believe, due to the fact that ProBuild values hard work and effort as much as anything else. At ProBuild, I have a voice and I know I am heard. A person would think that in a company this size, opinions of the many don’t matter. I have seen and experienced quite the opposite. A person can go as high and far as they want if they are willing to learn, can be a team player and have will power. That is one of the many things that I love about ProBuild.”
Marnie J, Senior Administrative Assistant
“My employment began as an entry level file clerk the day after I graduated from high school. What I thought was going to be a temporary job turned into a career now spanning two decades. What has kept me here has been the opportunities to advance, feeling valued by my superiors, the flexibility of my schedule and the stability of my position. ProBuild invests in me by providing an outstanding benefits package and regular skill-building training. As a working mom, these are benefits I find most valuable.”
Dan S, V.P. Integrated Solutions
“I started my career at ProBuild in 2008 having over 15 years of experience in the building industry. The skills I learned in the Army as a Lieutenant in the Infantry continue to assist in my career at ProBuild: leadership, hard work, organization and teamwork.
ProBuild is a company that was assembled from the best building material suppliers from around the country to create the first with a national foot print. Because of this, the future opportunities for employment are vast and the time to get on board is now.
The personal satisfaction level is extremely high due to the challenge and sense of accomplishment that can come within ProBuild. ProBuild can offer you opportunities in product knowledge, building practices, sales, inventory management, manufacturing and management… to name a few.
For the future, ProBuild will be in the leadership seat in this industry due to its customers, ownership, leadership and the associates. We will be the ones that others in this industry will strive to be like. I can think of no better place to be.
