CEO and founder Chris Callen grew up spending Friday afternoons, weekends, and school breaks working in the family construction business. He returned and spent 4 years running Builders Plus Construction, a concrete subcontractor in Wichita, KS. After becoming frustrated looking for software solutions to the company’s challenges, he decided to create his own.

Lead by Chris' passion for construction and knowledge of technology, we have a unique knowledge of not only what software CAN be built, but what also software SHOULD be built.

At Grit, we embrace the agile manifesto. We value:

  • "Individuals and interactions over processes and tools"
  • "Working software over comprehensive documentation"
  • "Customer collaboration over contract negotiation"
  • "Responding to change over following a plan"

Not only is this used in the development of our software, but it is the fundamental building block of Grit’s product roadmap.

As we push one of the world's oldest industries into the future, we continue to expand the frontier to find new and innovative ways to build our world.
