An Insider's view of Convoy

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

What projects are you most excited about?

Completely reimagining an industry core to our economy and making it as efficient as possible. Building the framework and models that allow Convoy to reduce inefficiencies at every stage of the shipping process, and in turn reduce empty miles, truck traffic, and the environmental impact of shipping, is both rewarding and intellectually stimulating.

Senior Director, Data Science
