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 digitizing equipment parts procurement and eliminating the pains that come with it.
We set out to empower all of the small and mid-sized businesses that make up the construction industry by building a marketplace that works for them.
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.
We are looking for someone who is excited about innovating in an "un-sexy" industry and wants to be involved building product at an early stage.
You're in the right place if you:
We are fresh off of our $3M seed round to invest in growing our engineering team and we'd love for you to be a part of that!
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.
Does this role sound like a good fit? Email us at email@example.com
You can email firstname.lastname@example.org and one of us will be in touch asap!
We are committed to a remote friendly work environment so if you prefer to work from home or while on the go, that is fine by us!
We have an office in downtown Chicago for those who prefer to come into an office. We currently have employees in Boston, Chicago, and Detroit.
We have quarterly onsite meetings in our office in Chicago so you must be willing to travel at least quarterly.
We primarily work with equipment part suppliers in the aerial, dirt, and material handling equipment categories.
Yes. We were initially targeting equipment rental, equipment sales, parts, and everything in between.
However, after hundreds of calls from customers who were in need of parts to get their down piece of equipment back up and running we realized that we needed to focus everything on this parts problem. We found that across the board, there was an enormous amount of pain, productivity loss, and waste stemming from parts procurement so this is what we set out to solve.
We serve equipment owners and fleet managers across all kinds of businesses from airplane maintenance facilities to MLB ballparks to everyone in between.
However, our most common customers with the most urgent need are the small to mid sized construction and landscape contractors that make up the majority of the industry.
We see ourselves as being in the productivity business and parts procurement is at the core of construction's productivity problem.
We're not here to "disrupt" the parts supply chain. Instead, we're here to build a tech layer on top of it to add much needed productivity and personalization to both sides of the marketplace.
Our stack is Elixir/Phoenix, with a front end powered by LiveView, Tailwind and Alpine. [Read more about this combination here.] Our data sources are Postgres and Elasticsearch. Our stack was freshly re-written (early 2020) so there’s a lot of room to grow and expand.
It depends on the role but for the most part, no you do not.
