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.

Gary

Associate Product Manager

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

We take a very hands on approach to collaboration. Arrive is made up of very knowledgeable people that are passionate about the company and what we do. Our best collaboration happens when we all get in a room to brainstorm, share ideas, and challenge each other until we come up with the best solution.

Tyler

Principle Product Manager

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!

Marc

VP of Software Engineering

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

Since starting at the company a year and a half ago, I moved from a mid-level role to a managerial role. Arrive recognizes your achievements and also takes into consideration your career aspirations. Managers work with you to help you develop the skill-set needed to take you to the next level in your career and challenge you to reach your goals.
