In 2019, Carley Hill took all the knowledge she gained working for her family’s construction company to create a business of her own, CAHill TECH. Through its award-winning aQuiRe app, CAHill TECH is training the next generation of construction workers in a way they’re already familiar with – by watching videos on their phones.
This company wide safety and training platform was created as a solution to an urgent construction problem. As baby boomers retire, construction companies struggle to attract and train the next generation of workers.
That’s where the aQuiRe app comes in. It is designed for the front-line workers and contains thousands of safety and training videos, from how to correctly read a tape measure to pouring concrete. The CAHill team adds new modules regularly while at the same time creating custom content to meet the specific needs of leading US construction companies.
Our objective is to continue working towards democratizing access to these trades-based skills and allow everyone with motivation and drive to be a part of the construction industry.
Through the years spent in construction, we’ve learned how important it is to deliver timely information and training directly to the field. By developing a platform that enables it, we can help construction companies keep their workers safe and informed.
Founder & CEO
A dedicated professional who loves high-tech SaaS & getting her hands dirty (literally!) Carley has been running around construction sites since she was in diapers. Growing up in a family-owned road & bridge building company, she had worn just about every hat possible. From trucker caps to hard hats, from managing safety & logistics to advocating for funding in DC, she's pretty much done it all.
Carley strives to document the tips & tricks that have made the hundreds of men and women she has had the privilege to work with so successful. She seeks to empower people from ALL walks of life to build successful careers in the heavy civil construction world.
She is most proud of her company's award-winning product, aQuiRe & the team she has assembled to bring this awesome product to market. That, and the fact she can still easily finish a concrete bridge deck.
Carley lives in rural Western New York and loves a good round of trap shooting, playing with her toy poodle, and babydoll sheep.

He put all his experience into practice by articulating the most important training content that will empower workers to enjoy the most successful, rewarding careers possible.
Jamie Bolibrzuch is an Administrative Assistant at CAHill TECH. Her goal in life is to appreciate all she has been given and never want what she doesn't have. Professionally, she strives to support her co-workers and assist them with administrative tasks, so they can be free to focus on big picture work.
Jamie has been with the company since 2021, and in that time, she supported the team in various capacities, which soon made her an indispensable part of the CAHill team.
Before getting into administrative work, she was a Store Manager for a high-volume, fast-paced retailer; and she hired, trained, and managed 25+ employees for four years.
After leaving retail, she became a traveling Sales Manager for a local, publicly-traded biotechnology company. At the same company, she eventually transitioned to the role of Executive Assistant to the General Counsel, overseeing the execution of all legal documents, intellectual property cases, and shareholder correspondence.
She was on two episodes of the 'Price Is Right' but never got "called on down." (Although Drew Carey did chat with her during a commercial break, which was a win in itself.)
