The Company You’ll Join

Clearstory is digitizing and automating the change order process inside the commercial construction industry.

Just as TurboTax did for tax documents and Expensify did for receipts and expense reports, Clearstory is doing the same for change order communication and log management by building first-of-its-kind, category defining software that is revolutionizing the commercial construction industry.

The construction industry is being transformed fast by technology, but the way companies communicate costs hasn’t evolved in decades and still heavily relies on carbon copy paper, spreadsheets and email to track billions of dollars. These arcane manual processes can take days or weeks and include hours of manual office tasks such as scanning, manually transcribing, and tedious data-entry into spreadsheets.

At Clearstory we are changing that and creating a new category “change order communication,” by intelligently digitizing this age-old process. This leads to an increase in profits, more successful contractor to customer relationships, more transparency into a project’s true cost, and less wasted paper!

We are a Series A 100% SaaS company with impressive credentials for a company at our stage.

  • Blue Chip Clients. We have already landed some of the largest General and Subcontractors in the US and have helped our clients build landmark projects.
  • Significant Growth. We have a four quarter trailing average of 75% + quarter over quarter growth in dollar value processed on our platform.
  • Large Volumes Processed. We have processed over $10.5B of Change Order Dollars on our platform
  • Significant and Important Projects. Our customers are trusting us to manage significant projects in the commercial construction industry.

The Team You’ll Be Surrounded By

In addition to experienced SaaS and product leaders, our team has over 60 years of combined experience in the commercial construction space. At Clearstory we know our customer’s pain points and challenges first hand and have built a category defining product that serves the user first.

You’ll be part of an ambitious and collaborative company, committed to growing a supportive and diverse team that is passionate about empowering our contractor customers.

We believe teams do their best work by drawing on a diverse range of staff backgrounds, and we strongly encourage women, people of color, members of the LGBTQ+ community, those who are neurally diverse, and those with physical challenges and/or disabilities to apply.

More important than meeting 100% of qualifications, we are looking for collaborative, long-term team members with a growth mindset, a commitment to proactive communication, and a bias towards action, who are aligned and excited with our company’s mission to build the industry standard in digital change order communication for the commercial construction industry.

The Opportunity

As an early member of the sales Team, you will have an exceptional level of impact on the development and iteration of our Company and sales team as well as the workplace culture itself.

This is your chance to join a team that is bringing game-changing technology to a stagnant, static, pen and paper part of the commercial construction industry.

This is an earlier stage company and as such you will have many intangible benefits that go along with that opportunity such as the ability to influence the culture of your workplace, the ability to make an immediate impact with a product that already has an established product market fit and a healthy and growing user base as well as significant product influence
