Job Description

Chemistry forms the world around us. 96% of manufactured goods - everything
from everyday items to advanced technologies - are a product of the chemical
supply chain. And yet, the industry is still mostly offline, operating the
same way it has for a century.

ShelfCycle is a new operating system for the distributors of chemical
products. Our software is an all-in-one platform for inventory optimization,
relationship management, and precise accounting. We automate the digital flow
of chemical products as they physically flow through the chemical supply
chain.

Shape the Future of the Chemical Industry. Modernize a $5.2 Trillion Market.
Build with ShelfCycle.

**Why you should join**

* Join a zero-to-one journey. This is a rare opportunity to become a foundational team member at a company making fast traction.
* Transform a critical industry. You will build the technology that automates transactions in the chemical supply chain.
* Have a voice. We are a small team, and your opinion matters.
* Leverage modern tools. Focus on creating effective products instead of patching servers, fixing IP rules, or figuring out why logs aren't being rotated.
* Get a front-row seat to building a venture-backed startup. If you're thinking about founding your own company one day, this is the place to be. We're committed to sharing the lessons we learn along the way.
* Become an owner. You will receive a significant equity stake in the company, up to 1%. Our goal is that this will have a life-changing financial impact on you.
* Enjoy competitive pay and benefits. We offer great benefits and salaries ranging from $120k to $170k, depending on your experience and equity.
* Live where you want. We fully embrace remote work. We also understand that great communication is a necessity so we aim to gather in person every couple months.

* Wants to innovate. We intend to be the market-leaders bringing AI and new product design to the chemical industry.
* Puts the customer first. You approach everything you do through the lens of how it will impact customers, and prioritize ruthlessly based on that.
* Has deep curiosity. You want to learn as much as possible about the industry to know how best to serve it.
* Moves fast. You understand that sometimes it's better to try and fail than to wait for all the data you want.
* Is entrepreneurial. You have unique insights into customer problems, and when you identify an opportunity, you take the initiative to propose a solution.
* Has conviction in their skills. You write clean, simple code even when presented with complex problems, and have a strong intuition for what makes a product maintainable.
