Full-time
Convoy is transforming the $800 billion trucking industry. Our mission is to transport the world with endless capacity and zero waste. The industry is huge and so is the opportunity to change the way freight moves.

The next time you’re out driving and see an 18-wheeler on the road, that truck is empty 35% of the time. When big trucks drive empty, they throw unnecessary CO2 into the atmosphere. In fact, empty trucks generate more than 76 million metric tons of wasted carbon emissions every year. At Convoy, our digital freight network helps reduce those empty miles and cut carbon waste by nearly half.

This is your opportunity to collaborate with an incredible group of people and help transform the freight industry. Join Convoy and help move the world forward.

About the team:
Location & Contacts Platform is responsible for the core location data, both real-time location and physical location attributes that fuel automation and tracking at Convoy. We own the data related to the facilities we ship to and from as well as the location of the driver on any given shipment. As a platform team, our primary consumers are other development teams at Convoy, but the data that we serve is crucial to answering these external customer questions - Where’s my shipment? Is a facility going to let me in if I’m running a little late? Who do I reach out to if I need to schedule a load with this facility?

About You:
Convoy is establishing a team of talented, thoughtful engineers to automate the logistics industry. Our goal is to develop amazing software to make trucking efficient while growing ourselves and our coworkers sustainably. You should pride yourself on developing products at light speed, while simultaneously being intentional in your approach towards the process, communication, and building systems.

    • Write scalable software that helps us efficiently handle the large amount of shipment volume on our platform. For example, we process millions of dollars of payments.
    • Use machine learning to improve our margins or brokerage efficiency. Some of the problems we solve include automating our operations processes, forecasting prices, matching shipments, and personalizing the product experience for our individual customers.

We're looking for someone who has:

    • 5-8 years of industry experience building production software
