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?

Freight is fragmented, complicated, and opaque. Many parties in our industry rely on spreadsheets and antiquated methods to run their supply chain. Our goal is to bring shippers, 3PLs, and carriers into the future and add transparency with a smart, automated, and simple solution built with layers of sophistication and machine learning.

Erin Well

Senior Marketing Manager

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

What kinds of technical challenges do you and your team face?

As Shipwell seeks to move the industry forward, we often build the bridge between archaic systems and powerful modern technology. It can be challenging to implement these bridge solutions, but we see immediate benefits for our customers in cost-savings and efficiency when they use what we've built. That impact keeps our team focused and motivated.
