We’re building a category-defining marketplace for the industrial sector.
American industrial companies are being transformed by technology and Industry 4.0. More than 1.3 million manufacturing jobs have been added since the end of the recession. The resurgence of jobs has brought on a workforce crisis as companies struggle to fill roles. More than 2.4 million jobs are expected to go unfilled.
For every $1 spent on manufacturing, $1.89 is added to the economy – the highest multiplier of any economic sector.
Over the next decade, industrial companies will need an additional 3.5 million people to fill manufacturing jobs.
The average annual compensation for workers at manufacturing companies in the state of California is $100,060.

We’re continuous learners. If we don’t know, we don’t assume. If we do, then we assume we might not know everything.
We don’t let obstacles get in the way of progress. If there’s a problem, we find a solution.
We operate with a sense of urgency and seek to accomplish things every day. We keep our timelines in days not weeks.
We value that extra bit of thoughtfulness that goes into our work, because it’s the little things that set us apart.
