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!

    • Solid system design skills and operational expertise to enable teams to make the right design trade-offs
    • Strong collaboration skills to help drive operational best practices and help teams raise the bar on service health
    • Strong debugging skills to diagnose and root cause issues across the entire stack
    • Experience handling large scale services
    • A history of developing and reliable services and ability to impart the lessons learned therein.
    • The ability to dive deep into new technologies and learn quickly.
    • Confidence in reading and writing service or automation code.

We're looking for someone who will:

    • Instill and empower a culture of Operational Excellence across Engineering.
    • Encourage use of Engineering's tools and technology to their fullest potential.
    • Supply subject matter expertise on application monitoring, configuration, and automation.
