Convoy
Convoy is the most efficient digital freight network.
Seattle, WA

Director, Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

| Seattle
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.

An Insider's view of Convoy

What's something quirky about your company?

At our weekly all-hands meeting we ask 3 new hires to come up and share "Two Truths and a Lie". This is extra neat because you get to familiarize yourself with new folks and also learn something fun about the people you work with. Sometimes we even learn new vocabulary, like what a Luthier is (a maker of stringed instruments)!

Jocelyn

Director of Recruiting

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

Matching the right truck to the right load is one of the most expensive and manual steps in a traditional brokerage. Many people thought it couldn't be solved in an automated way because of the complexity. It took us 3 years and in Jan 2019 we announced that we had reached 100% automated matching.

Ziad

Chief Product Officer

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

My role has shifted from being just a product owner to taking on a more active role in leadership activities at the company. I contribute to hiring across the company, speak at various panels and events, help sustain our core culture through hyper growth, and act as a founding member of Women Discussion Groups at Convoy.

Himani

Senior Manager, Product

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

We’ve built a culture where all ideas are welcome, candid debate is encouraged, and it's okay to fail. We focus on values that encourage us to ask questions, challenge ideas, and discuss wild ideas; driving them forward when possible. Creativity has spurred some of our biggest innovations, like automated detention for carriers!
