Fortune 500 companies such as Anheuser-Busch, Unilever, and Target rely on Transfix to handle their most important FTL freight needs.

Come leave a positive impact on the environment as we help reduce the carbon footprint caused by the 65 billion wasted miles on the road.
Transfix was named one of Forbes' "Next Billion-Dollar Company" in 2018.
Based in New York City, Transfix is backed by top VC firms including New Enterprise Associates (NEA), Canvas Ventures, and Lerer Hippeau. The company has raised more than $78.5 million in funding.
The problems we solve everyday are real and require creativity, grit, and determination. We are building a culture that challenges norms while fostering experimentation and personal growth. We're hiring team members who are passionate and are energized by the vision to simplify and transform one of the largest and most complex industries through technology, data and a strong commitment to customers. 
Marketing is a key part of driving the business at Transfix - from building the brand to the acquisition and retention of customers (who care just as much about their customers as we do) and carriers. Marketing also works tirelessly to build great relationships with key stakeholders to our business including industry experts, industry analysts and the media. 
As the Content Marketing Manager, you will play a critical role in bringing the Transfix voice to life through clear, compelling content across mediums/channels. You will shape our voice to create content that builds awareness and drive online conversion or get an executive selected to speak at a conference. While you will report to a strong Head of Marketing and partner with several other marketing experts, including a Graphic Designer, you need to be a strong individual contributor, with proven ability to manage your own set of projects and communicate requests and outcomes effectively. You should also have a proven commitment to quality control, making sure everything that “goes out the door” is of the highest quality, and works for the channel of choice. You also know how to write effective content for a wide variety of offline and online tactics (events, direct mail, email, social media, media relations, etc), and for a range of assets (infographics, slide decks, collateral, emails, landing pages, signage, press releases, etc.). As Transfix's storyteller, you will have a direct impact on our growth.
