We are looking for experienced front-end engineers to help design and build out our platform. We’re aiming to aggregate logistics data to enable customers to operate more efficiently and connect them with other logistics companies. We believe we’re on to something big, but to get there we’re working through end-to-end complex problems in a complex and old-fashioned domain.
Logistics software is notorious for overloading users with information, which requires a masters in spaghetti science to understand. Complexity in enterprise software is unavoidable, but we believe the end user shouldn’t have to jump through hoops to manage it. This may seem simple, but logistics is filled with antiquated processes and users.
If you consider yourself an experienced designer magician who can bring fun to traditionally boring domain, or someone who can make up for lack of experience with passion, we’re looking for you.
*A LITTLE ABOUT US*
We are not a typical startup. We're the skunkworks offshoot of an existing logistics company - we founded this startup to address logistics challenges we've faced since we started that company nearly 20 years ago. It turns out most of our competitors face the same problems, and the industry at large isn't making much progress to solve them. So the solutions we're developing are targeting real problems with real monetization potential. The founders have a good understanding of both the logistics industry and programming - so working with us isn't going to be an exercise in dealing with a pointy haired boss. We believe in solid development practices that avoid technical debt, and want to focus on product quality above all else. We also believe in independence and accountability - not looking to add 'babysitter' to our job descriptions.
We've been trying to tackle these problems in some fashion for many years, but development only really picked up in the last year.
