An Insider's view of Shipwell

What are some social events your company does?

Shipwell assumes you know how to do your job; outside of core office hours, you are allowed to set your own in-office times. Working from home to deal with a delivery or appointment is a simple notice to a manager, and you're encouraged to make use of the unlimited PTO!

David

Backend Engineer

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

Carrier Compliance & Analytics Lead

What makes someone successful on your team?

What makes the team members on my teams successful is their ability to come in everyday with an amazing attitude, effort, and working together as a team!

Taryn

Enterprise Carrier Sales Manager

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

Strategic Account 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!
