Lead Software Engineer - Shipping Disruptor

Have you seen the huge container ships backed up for hundreds of miles outside US ports?

Are you patiently waiting for that new iPhone, camera, t-shirt, shoes, drone, or anything else?

Do you run a business that can't get products shipped to customers in time?

The truth is, there is a HUGE problem globally right now, and that's a lack of truck drivers - seriously! Think about it, everything you buy was shipped. And you overpay for it because freight brokers are always involved in every freight shipping and charge enormously high commissions.

I am exclusively partnered with the company that's putting a stop to this. They are transforming the $800 billion trucking industry and making freight shipping BROKER-FREE! They are very well-funded, have a solid Engineering team, and can truly disrupt a major industry that's suffering right now.

To fulfill the mission they're looking for a talented Lead Software Engineer who can deliver work 1/4 the time that the most knowledgeable people think possible. Who has experience working in fast-growing tech startups, still writes code, and can lead a small engineering team. If you believe this is about you, then we want to talk to you!
