Friday, July 16, 2021

Have you ever driven on the highway next to a tractor-trailer and wondered about how they loaded it or how it knew where to go? Join us and be part of a team that builds the solutions that enable the scheduling, loading, and tracking of shipments that go all over the country! We aim to be the centralized hub for all operational activity and communication between participants of our moves, from pick up to drop off. Our team is responsible for a wide range of functionality, which provides opportunities to make a large impact across the overall workflow. Our functional domain starts when the customer's household goods are packed into crates at their home, continues on with the management of those crates at warehouses along the route, and ends when those items are safely unloaded at the destination. Our software helps operators bundle and offer those hauls out to carriers, track shipments once they start moving, and provide real-time feedback to our users and other systems.To accomplish this, we have a mix of custom built software, cutting edge integrations with transportation carriers for pricing and tracking, and custom connectors that integrate with purchased software. Currently, our applications are web-based, but in the future will be moving to a more responsive design to allow truck drivers and warehouse workers the ability to access us via their mobile devices. All of our custom software is written in Java Spring and Semantic UI React, deployed into the cloud using Amazon EKS, and monitored using tools like Grafana, Prometheus, and Kibana.
