An Insider's view of Arrive Logistics

What’s the vibe like in the office?

The vibe is a mix of relaxed and high intensity... Relaxed in a sense that its very easy to talk to anyone in the company (including leadership) and everyone is approachable. High intensity in the way that everyone is striving for the same goals and the work is exciting, challenging, and high impact.

What makes someone successful on your team?

The easy answer is to deliver a valuable yet efficient Product to the business and it's stakeholders. However, within our team dynamic, I believe someone's success is seen when they correctly assess the business' problem(s), deliberate on a possible solution(s) to address that problem, and execute the plan to fix it.

Rob

Product Coach

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

Hire talented people and then take a step back and let them do what they do best. I encourage my employees to aim high and embrace the company vision. Failure happens, but I'm there to remind them that falling short is the price of aiming high - This is almost always a price worth paying. My job is to provide mentorship and celebrate innovation!
