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.
When you 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 are eager to join a fast paced, rapidly growing startup, and be part of an exciting team that is expanding to new carrier segments. You will be responsible for bringing large carriers into our marketplace, building relationships with them and understanding their needs, helping them be successful and reduce empty miles, actively managing these relationships, helping influence how our technology and marketplace works with carriers, and championing our carrier experience. This is an exciting opportunity that is fundamentally improving our marketplace and how we partner with our carriers.
