An Insider's view of Shipwell

What’s the vibe like in the office?

The office has a killer view of the Texas Capitol building that never gets old. Our space is open-concept so that teams can collaborate on the fly and get things done quicker.

Avery Knutson

Business Development

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

How a freight brokerage frees up cumbersome processes using technology! We strive to answer this question so people on the front lines can do more of what they do best. Our teams are the heaviest users and biggest advocates of Shipwell’s platform because it directly solves our industry-specific needs.

Andy Le

Carrier Compliance & Analytics Lead

How does the company support your career growth?

Shipwell supports our career goals by providing many opportunities to drive impact in every department. There are so many projects, initiatives, and OKRs for each team that individual contributions and team collaboration lead to massive impact and success for the company.

Kendal Lackey

People Operations Specialist

How do your team's ideas influence the company's direction?

Everyone on the team shows up with a unique perspective. We don't train people to be sales robots because sometimes new ideas can drastically improve how the entire team operates. That sort of ingenuity influences our entire company.

Laurel Roberts

Customer Operations Manager

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

Being a data scientist I spend about 50% of my time with stakeholders, customers, sales representatives, & the carrier success team, to understand how they work and how we can help them. One of the most important lessons I have learnt at Shipwell is that listening is key!
