About the role

Design products that power the construction industry

The EquipmentShare Design team creates end-to-end user experiences for our customers and service partners. Product Designers are key stakeholders in the full product development lifecycle, from working with their cross-functional partners to create the product vision to ensuring pixel-perfect implementation. The challenges Product Designers tackle at EquipmentShare are complex. To be successful, Product Designers must be able to work cross-functionally across teams, think deeply, and communicate clearly. Now is an exciting time to join our design team as we lay the foundation for our vision of the future of construction.

About EquipmentShare

EquipmentShare delivers user-friendly cloud solutions for the construction industry. Our suite of products which help contractors maximize their equipment uptime, reduce risk exposure and increase productivity and include an improved equipment rental experience, fleet tracking and asset management software, hardware security solutions and predictive service and maintenance applications.

EquipmentShare is the fastest-growing, independently owned construction equipment rental company in the country. We serve dozens of markets across the U.S. and are on track to create a national footprint in every major market in the country by the end of 2023. Our branch locations are equipped with a broad range of construction equipment, ranging from 150-foot telescopic booms to 120,000-lb. track excavators.

EquipmentShare’s rapid growth goes beyond meeting a demand for equipment rentals in booming new markets. Instead, our mission begins with our rental product, and it’s a testimony to our ability to improve industry standards and better serve the customer. Our expansion and customer retention is a validation of strong contractor demand for the smart jobsite technology we’ve built into our rental fleet. And it’s just the beginning of our journey to establishing a global presence.

Your Opportunity to Grow With Us

The EquipmentShare team is a close-knit group of professionals who all share an interest in providing a service and product that improve our customer’s experience. Above all, we care about building something people want, and the only way to do that is by assembling a skilled, passionate and talented team.

The engineering teams that our Product Designer will work with are fully remote and highly autonomous.

Our Product Designer should love a challenge and want the opportunity to grow with a fast-paced company. Industry competitors often have layers of tenured management that create barriers to career advancement. The opportunity for career growth is unparalleled at EquipmentShare, where you’ll find no shortage of challenging yet fulfilling work, chances to build new skills and supportive teammates who will push you to achieve your best.

Primary Responsibilities

  • Make sure all new features in subsystems are visually consistent with the rest of the app, and eventually contribute to the design system for Track and Link and Admin apps
  • Advocate for consistent brand design and an overall outstanding and pleasant user experience
