You will constantly seek better ways to balance supply and demand, from our industry-first freight surge pricing, to our intelligent carrier/shipper matching algorithms, to our health and monitoring tools for our operators.

You will answer questions like What is a "good" load vs a "bad" load? In what regions should we onboard more carriers? What is the tradeoff between margin and growth?

If you get excited by a user-first approach to building marketplaces and leveraging world class data expertise to execute on your vision, this is the perfect role for you.

What You'll Do

  • Using data-driven methodologies to grow our business while balancing supply and demand.

  • Prioritizing features based on business impact and available resources.

  • Proactively filling communication gaps amongst all team members.

  • Contributing to technical conversations around deadlines and engineering solutions.

  • Driving product research priorities for the research team.

  • Making magic out of the complicated and antiquated freight industry through intense focus on simplification and shipping minimal viable products.

What You'll Need

  • 5+ years of relevant experience in product management
  • Ability to write SQL queries (nice to have)
  • Track record of successfully building 0 to 1 products
  • Experience communicating technical concepts to a non-technical audience
  • Technical expertise and the ability to question, understand, and challenge software implementation decisions and priorities.
  • Passionate curiosity to learn and adapt to dynamic research, development and industry knowledge
  • Ability to collaborate across multiple domains successfully
  • A bold and optimistic personality:
    • We're coming to work everyday challenging the status quo, and we're looking for people comfortable with asking bold, quirky questions, along with the mental resilience to know we're just at the start of a long journey
  • Minimum of a Bachelor's degree (preferably in either computer science/engineering, a quantitative domain like math/stats/physics, or economics)
