Over $20 trillion worth of goods are manufactured, transported, and sold each year--the things we use, wear and consume every day. The global supply chain is the infrastructure for the physical economy, but it struggles to keep up with its own complexity.
The manufacturers, distributors, and retailers that comprise this complex network are limited by the information they possess. They struggle to track and respond to fluctuations in supply and demand, relying on decades-old data standards, siloed data systems, and lots of manual Excel work.
At Alloy, we’re set to change all this. We are building the first comprehensive, low-latency view of demand and inventory across the supply chain. Our platform connects manufacturers, suppliers, distributors, and retailers, allowing companies to track and optimize the flow of goods from production to consumption.
We are early stage, well funded by leading VCs, and growing. Our small team studied at top institutions including MIT, Stanford, Waterloo, and ETH Zurich and has diverse backgrounds and experience in analytics, large-scale enterprise software, and retail and financial technology. Culture really matters to us: we value diversity in all forms and strive to foster respect, integrity and open communication.
We're committed to making enterprise software inspiring. We use Google Compute Engine, BigTable, PostgreSQL, Redis, Python, Java and React, all wrapped in strong design.
You thrive in a small team where you can build technology from the ground up. You love to pick up new tech, get good at it fast and do something creative with it.
You don’t shy away from even the most challenging problems and are relentless in always looking for better solutions. You are self-motivated and enjoy working with others towards a common objective; and when you know a better way, you voice your opinion. Building software is the means to an end: you want to change the way an entire industry operates.
