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 the core freight-management software platform that allows us to serve a variety of players in the freight transportation sector—manufacturers, national retail chains, trucking companies, dispatchers, and more.
  • Expand our existing software platform to serve new customer types and modes of transportation across the freight industry.
  • Take a critical eye to our design and UX, looking for ways to streamline manual workflows and ship high-quality and intuitive interfaces. Software engineers at Transfix iterate and experiment relentlessly, with an irrationally high standard for product quality and a penchant for shipping code.
  • Collaborate with Designers to extend the components in our Design Pattern Library and utilize them throughout new views and layouts.
  • Utilize automated tests (unit, integration, and end-to-end) to maintain quality and correctness throughout a quickly evolving codebase. 
  • Instrument client-side applications to monitor end-user web performance and identify runtime exceptions.
  • Participate in blameless post-mortems and retrospectives that enable us to learn from both failures and successes in order to improve team process and software design.
  • Our tech stack is comprised of React/Redux, Ruby on Rails, Python, PostgreSQL, Redis, Dynamo, RedShift. We are hosted on AWS and leverage a variety of their services. Code is tested using CircleCI and a variety of unit- and end-to-end testing frameworks including RSpec, unittest, Jest, and Cypress. We monitor our production software with tools like New Relic, Sentry, Airbrake and CloudWatch.

About you:

  • You are proficient with JavaScript, CSS, and HTML, ideally with experience writing ES6/7 and understanding the tradeoffs associated with object-oriented and functional JS.
  • You’ve built products using at least one framework, such as React/Redux, Vue, or Angular.
  • You demand high-quality code of yourself and others, and take pride in shipping stunning and intuitive products that delight users.
  • You love tools, technologies, and frameworks, but first and foremost you are pragmatic—you get stuff done with what solves the problem you’re facing.
  • Your enthusiasm for automated testing is rivaled only by your tattoo that reads, “Performance is a Feature.”
  • Back-end code isn’t your strongest suit, but you’re willing to dive in and learn in order to deliver products and track down bugs.
  • 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.

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