About You 

How do you know if you will fit in? We are looking for enthusiastic, entrepreneurial, out-of-the-box thinking individuals who are out to change the world. We can teach you what you need to know about our products and customers, we really want exciting people with lots of potential who will bring their "all". Below are some qualifications and characteristics we are looking for: 

  • You are someone with an insatiable curiosity to learn. When something has always been done a certain way, you wonder why nobody has begun to do it differently 
  • You are someone who refuses to believe “no, we can’t do that” is an acceptable answer to a question, and inspire eye rolling from how much you ask the question “why not” of your colleagues 
  • People really like working with you. You are kind, social, humble, and want the best for others. 
  • You have no background, experience, or understanding whatsoever of the heavy equipment rental industry. Yes, you read that correctly. We are looking for people interested in doing things differently in this industry which we intend to rapidly change and improve 
  • Your past employment experiences have frustrated you about not being able to see the results of your work. You dream of directly contributing to the success of a great organization 
  • You think technology can help change the world – you read Techcrunch and/or VentureBeat, and have ambitions to perhaps start your own company some day 
  • You have an uncanny ability to influence people – without them knowing that you actually influenced them! 
  • You think automation is important – and seek out processes, systems and tools that enable better decision making with minimal re-work 
  • You usually don’t immediately know the answer to everything – but you are adept at using tools and seeking opinions to get the right answer 

As you would expect, we offer a competitive salary, comprehensive benefits, a positive work environment, and an opportunity to make an impact. Our office is located in Guelph, ON, Canada with locations in Brisbane Australia, Houston Texas and Ventura California.
