If you are excited about tackling challenges to improve the lives of truckers and shippers across the country and reinventing an industry from the inside out, send us your resume.

What you'll do:

  • Build core products that serve the unique needs of all the players in the freight transportation sector—national retail chains, trucking companies, dispatchers, and many more.
  • Scale our existing apps to new user types and capabilities.
  • Take a critical eye to our experiences, and how we can streamline manual workflows. We need people willing to iterate and experiment relentlessly, with an irrationally high standard for product quality and a penchant for shipping code
  • Write tests (unit, integration, and end-to-end), and constantly seek to improve code quality.
  • Communicate clearly and directly with designers, product managers, and operations, both in the office and remotely.

About you:

  • You have a mastery of Javascript. You understand the tradeoffs associated with object-oriented and functional techniques. You demand high-quality code of yourself and others.
  • You’ve built products with at least one framework such as React/Redux, Vue, or Angular. We use React/Redux currently, but we strive to make the best technology decisions for the job at hand.
  • You love tools, technologies, and frameworks, but are first and foremost pragmatic—you get stuff done with what solves the problem you’re facing.
  • You love shipping new things rapidly, and iterating based on real user behavior. You have a knack for finding and eliminating inefficiency in your users’ workflows.
  • You’re enthusiastic about unit testing and performance, and knowing how to communicate the value of technical excellence to non-technical people.
  • People tell you you have eye for design, instincts for creating stunning, intuitive user interfaces.
  • You’re a great listener, but have the willingness to speak up when you see something that needs to be fixed. You ask questions when something isn’t clear.


  • Experience writing ES6/7.
  • Experience with CSS preprocessors and templating languages (e.g. Sass/Less, Pug/Jade).
  • Enthusiasm for automated testing (we use Jest and Nightwatch).
  • Experience creating data visualizations (e.g. with D3).
  • Ability to configure and optimize build systems (we use Webpack 2 and Yarn).
  • Passion for optimizing continuous deployment process (we use CircleCI).
  • Know enough about the backend to be dangerous (we use Rails and Node).
  • Design chops (e.g. Sketch).

To all recruitment agencies: Transfix does not accept unsolicited agency resumes and will not be held responsible for any fees related to unsolicited resumes.
