EquipmentShare is dedicated to creating a connected jobsite for the modern contractor. We deliver technology-driven solutions for construction industry professionals, and we provide a better equipment rental experience, fleet tracking software and hardware security solutions to help contractors work smarter.
In 2018, EquipmentShare opened nine construction yards, expanded into 15 new markets across the nation and welcomed more than 200 new employees to better serve contractors across the nation. Our team wants to transform the norm of the construction industry, which is, by the way, an industry with an estimated value of $12.7 trillion come 2020.
We're finding a better way to build, and people are taking notice: EquipmentShare was voted Best Place to Work 2018, and you can read more about what others are saying about us in the WSJ, Inc Magazine and EquipmentWorld.
As we continue to scale our product offerings, services and markets, we need a Financial Controller to lead our accounting department and help us grow with financial strategy and stability.
While running their construction companies, brothers Willy and Jabbok Schlacks were frustrated with the options they had for renting equipment. Renting was expensive, but owning a piece of equipment was just as costly; plus, it came with long-term maintenance expenses. Contractors didn't have good choices when it came to renting and owning equipment.
With more than 40 years of combined construction experience, they decided it was time to do things differently and build something, for once, for contractors. The brothers originally founded EquipmentShare as a peer-to-peer rental platform at Startup Weekend in Columbia, Missouri, in 2014 and proceeded to catapult their vision to market when they applied and were accepted into Y Combinator's accelerator program in Mountain View, California, in 2015.
In just four years, EquipmentShare has evolved greatly as a business and expanded across the U.S. with our brick-and-mortar rental locations and we've captured customers in nearly every state with our cloud-connected telematics platform Track. EquipmentShare today continues the mission of fostering innovation in the dated construction industry.
Our Financial Controller will supervise and lead our accounting department, so our ideal candidate will be motivated to succeed and ready to serve as an advocate for EquipmentShare culture. He or she will manage and direct our accounting activities and hold our team to a high standard of accuracy and timeliness. The Financial Controller will also ensure the proper recording of company transactions and produce financial and other key reports for management. If you thrive in a fast-paced, evolving business environment and want to build upon your accounting, management and financial expertise, then let's talk.
EquipmentShare isn't just another startup looking for a "rockstar hire." Our mission to change an entire industry is a grand mission, so we only hire people who are up to take on this massive challenge with us. In turn, our employees have every opportunity to make a tangible difference at work and succeed. We want employees who are energized by challenge instead of turning away from it.
We are a rapidly growing organization made up of talented individuals who grind until their goals are reached. We know we can't revolutionize the construction industry with mediocre employees and so-so results. We want you to join us if you're thrilled about jumping in, learning fast, caring deeply about our success and achieving wildly.
