Why is this role awesome?
We have a ton of demand for what we are building and are fresh off a $3M seed round to scale our engineering team to keep up. We need a highly passionate engineer to focus on optimizing the buyer experience from the moment their equipment breaks down to the moment it is working again.

Construction's First Parts Marketplace

In an industry where costs have doubled and margins are tight, there can be no lapse in productivity. With equipment downtime being a contractors largest cost, there is an enormous amount of productivity wasted due to the pains that come with parts procurement.

At Gearflow, we are on a mission to address construction's productivity problem, one that we have experienced first hand, by streamlining equipment parts procurement and eliminating the fleet maintenance pains that come with it.

  • A marketplace where vetted part suppliers can easily become an e-commerce enabled business and build their business's brand online.
  • A marketplace where equipment owners can find the parts they need from suppliers they can trust so they can get back to work.

Why Now Is The Time To Join Gearflow

We just raised our $3M seed round in June '21 to invest in growing our engineering team. We have a lot of demand for what we are building and working to go faster in catching up.

The market timing is right for Gearflow.

The pandemic has accelerated the need for ecommerce while parts is the largest contributor to a construction equipment manufactor's profitability. Suppliers are actively seeking a marketplace built for them to adapt to the fast changing buyer needs and to protect their parts business from players like Amazon.

The timing could not be better to finally address construction's largest productivity problem.

Who Are We?

We are an eclectic, diverse group of thinkers that are all energized by this massive problem we are tackling for construction's underserved majority.

On the surface, we are all very different. And that is what makes our days so fun.

Who You Might Be

We are recruiting highly talented people who get excited about bringing digital solutions to analog processes.

People who are inspired by serving generational business in the construction industry, and get energized by innovating for industrial entrepreneurs.

We want to add people who have a passion for creating life-changing value for people doing real work.

Who we're looking for

We are looking for someone who loves building client facing product at an early stage to lead the development of the buyer experience on Gearflow.

You're in the right place if you:

  • Enjoy building customer facing products and experiences.
  • Consider yourself a full stack engineer but have a passion for solving front end problems.
  • Are excited to collaborate with everyone on the team including those on the sales, marketing, and customer support side of the business.
  • Thrive in small, agile teams and have an interest in joining a fast growing startup.

What you will be doing

  • Be a key hands-on contributor to the development of the Gearflow platform with a focus on the buyer experience from the moment their equipment breaks down to the moment it gets back up and running. This includes optimizing the parts purchasing experience on Gearflow as well as building the dashboard tools that our customers need to be successful. 
  • Use all aspects of the PETAL stack to build seamless user experiences.
  • Maintain the codebase and ensure it runs consistently and effectively.
  • Help grow, develop, and shape our team and culture across all facets of our business.
  • Assist in the engineering team planning, recruiting, and hiring process.

The following experience is relevant to us

We’re looking for an experienced full stack developer to help build core customer facing elements to our platform.  We’re looking for someone with exposure to Elixir, as that is our chosen stack, but it is not a requirement.

  • 2+ years of full-stack development experience
  • Experience building and maintaining web applications, particularly in marketplace or SaaS settings.
  • Experience in React is a plus as that is a technology we are beginning to integrate.
