Technical Team Lead - Software

Boston, MA /
Engineering /

Whether companies produce computers, drugs, berries, or detergent, they have to get those goods from their facility to the consumer.  Unfortunately, over $100B of goods are lost or damaged while in transit.  Tive eliminates this waste by allowing companies to act on in-transit incidents before they happen.

The Tive tracker is a small device that measures the condition of a shipment (location, temperature, shock, etc.) and sends that information to the Tive web application where customers can configure what happens when the tracker detects an issue.  Tive customers join because of the market leading product, but stay because everyone on the Tive team goes above and beyond to ensure their shipments arrive safely.
