curbFlow is a venture-backed, early-stage startup developing the world's first modular Computer Vision (CV) and IoT platform collecting real time data to help the Retail and Commercial Real Estate industries make better decisions. Main Street merchants, brokers and landlords use curbFlow's data and insights - like pedestrian tracing and counts - to inform on staffing, operating hours, sales conversion, site selection, competitive intelligence, and more. We’re on our way to providing small businesses the first-ever accessible platform to real-time data crucial to their success.
Leadership & Culture
curbFlow is founded and led by three former YC founders - two of whom are technical - with two exits under their belts.
The company has operated as a distributed team since its founding in 2018 and will continue to support team members working from anywhere in North America. Team members currently live in NY, the Bay Area, DC, Toronto and Montreal. Accommodations are made for team members who want a hybrid work-from-home & office experience.
curbFlow is looking for a Mechanical Engineer who wants to help the team build an industry from scratch. You'll be working in a team of full stack, CV and hardware engineers building a scalable, reliable and secure SaaS platform for clients to access their CV-generated data.
