We are seeking Shovelers to clear snow from townhouses, businesses, and trapped cars, primarily in central Brooklyn, using our app. In addition, before each forecast storm, Shovelers can opt-in to clear snow from 4-8 nearby locations (a typical property takes one person, 30 minutes). This is great for Rideshare drivers, paraprofessionals, the temporarily unemployed (running out of unemployment), contractors, students, and residents of Bed-Stuy, Crown Heights, Prospect Heights, Bushwick, Williamsburg, East Flatbush, East New York, or Brownsville.


  1. Use plastic shovels when clearing snow

  2. Pretreat their properties using calcium chloride

  3. Clear snow within 5 hours after the snowfall has ended

  4. Clear 75% of the sidewalk and 100% of all stairways (except a trace amount)

  6. Evenly distribute calcium chloride on cleared sites.

  7. Upload proper before and after photos to Foot Soldiers App.


CONTRACTOR PAYMENT: $40 - $400 (per property)

Foot Soldiers share 40% of each property's revenue with Shovelers according to fee structures determined by the property's size, amount of snow, and time of day. In addition, some properties are eligible for a 50% share payment (e.g., because the Job was at night, between 8 p.m. and - 5:59 a.m. EST, OR on a federally recognized holiday). Shovelers also receive 100% of electronic tips that customers optionally pay.
