Changing the Way Construction Moves

Trelar is a new, and growing network of vocational trucking owner-operators, drivers, contractors, and plant operators revolutionizing the $150B construction vehicle ecosystem through an app-driven marketplace that matches carriers to the contractors who need delivery capacity.

Trelar provides carriers with a mobile application to find, accept and invoice for loads delivered, while contractors use Trelar to search, schedule, book and manage a virtual fleet of trucks, and deliveries.

Careers at Trelar

The Status Quo Will Lose

Trelar is a company composed of proven disruptors with a track record of developing category-leading products and companies through big thinking, and solid execution. This time around our attention is focused on a $150 billion segment of the $10 trillion global construction industry that happens to be the most inefficient and least digitized industry in the world.
We think it is time to digitize! 

Why Trelar is Different

We live, work and play in the Hill Country of Austin, Texas. Like all startups, we have great stories like how we formed the company in October 2018 and were funded a month later. Or that we started in a garage as the core infrastructure was built by three engineers sitting on lawn chairs, using TV trays for desks.

Trelar offers full health benefits, unlimited PTO and a culture of working smart and having fun. If you like the excitement of working at an early stage startup and converting big ideas and challenges into opportunities, you may want to tell us about yourself and that time you said:
“Hold my drink…” and then disrupted a multi-billion dollar industry!
