Quantity Surveyor



Gurugram, Haryana, India
Posted on Wednesday, September 13, 2023

About Us: At (a Y-Combinator startup), we believe there is an anomaly in the world that retailing via physical stores is still very complex. You can set up your web store in hours, but setting up a physical store is very complex and littered with ad-hoc choices. We are building a plug-and-play expansion solution for retail chains which will digitize the supply chain of materials, labor and also allow expanding retailers to track their projects with the click of a button. In this pursuit, we have built more than 600 stores to date for 24 brands in India, and plan to start delivering 500 stores every month in the next 12 months. We are not stopping at just building stores, our plan is to create a system to manage the store throughout its life cycle. Brands should be able to buy equipment (Racks, Mannequins, Kitchen equipment), hire and manage manpower, and maintain the store with a single laptop. “We are building an operating system for physical retailing!”
