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.

You will be joining Marketplace Demand product organization which is responsible for acquiring, pricing and risk-managing demand into Convoy’s two-sided marketplace.
In your role, you will build new pricing offerings to meet unmet transportation needs of all customer segments.

You will also work closely with Research Scientists to build data products for these offerings that allow Convoy to operate a growth-margin trade off framework while ensuring exceptional service quality.

To help you succeed, you will work with a "pod" that can consist of engineers, research scientists, and others which will be embedded on your charter.
