Senior Director, Brokerage Operations
Atlanta, Georgia /
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.
In this role you will be responsible for leadership, vision, and management of the teams that ensure a great carrier match, price, and service on each shipment. You will lead, grow and nurture teams across both our Seattle and Atlanta offices. You’re experienced in operations and strategy. You have a strong customer orientation, experience leading teams, and the ability to optimize your team’s actions—through both process changes and training as well as partnership with Convoy’s product team—to get the best possible results.
You will join in Convoy’s mission to transform the trucking industry by reducing waste while building trust with shippers and truck drivers. You will be passionate about these goals and able to bring innovative ideas to further our mission.
