Role Description

CloudTrucks provides a business in a box solution for truck drivers, taking on the back office business operations and tasks involved in running a trucking business. The Business Platform team is responsible for building the services that power that experience as well as owning our internal facing web application. The tooling and products surfaced there, allow our Operations, Customer Success, Finance, Engineering and Safety teams to effectively manage a customer's business as well as the overall health of the entire platform. The Business Platform team adopts a tech forward approach to solving business problems, so in addition to designing the data models and business workflows, we are constantly looking for ways to introduce automation.

We are looking for an Engineering Manager to grow and lead the Business Platform team. As an early engineering leader at the company, you will report directly to the CTO and help shape the vision, strategy, and roadmap of one of the most critical pillars of the platform. We are looking for a candidate who is deeply invested in the success and growth of people on the team, comfortable working in a dynamic environment with multiple stakeholders and greenfield opportunities, and has the ability to take initiative with a bias for action.

Examples of projects that the team works on - Automate document processing. We receive lots of PDFs with similar content in varying formats and layouts from different brokers we work with. Build a document processing engine that is able to take an unstructured PDF and extract structured data. Leverage this capability to fully automate business workflows and remove the need for manual processing. - Add geofencing capabilities to gain operational visibility on when truck drivers are picking up or dropping off their loads. - Work with cross functional teams to design and automate the lifecycle of a job on the CloudTrucks platform. Modeling everything from customers booking a job, to verifying delivery and issuing payment, to sending out invoices to brokers on job completion.

Responsibilities - Partner with cross-functional leaders across the company to define the team's overall strategy, priorities, resourcing, and roadmap. - Provide technical leadership and help the team achieve a high bar for technical excellence and execution velocity. - While you will spend the bulk of your time managing the team, you should be willing and capable of jumping in and being hands on with shipping code or technical tasks if needed. - Enable the team to do their best work by removing roadblocks, managing processes, and dependencies. - Provide coaching, mentorship, and continuous feedback to develop engineers on the team and advance their careers. - As part of engineering leadership, help support and foster engineering wide culture and best practices. - Partner with the Recruiting team to recruit and retain top engineering talent.

What we are looking for - 2+ years managing and leading engineering teams. - Ability to recruit and build out high performing teams. - Excellent written and verbal communication skills. Effectively communicates with both technical and non-technical stakeholders. - Collaborates well cross functionally and across teams. - Strong technical skills with a senior+ software engineering background (full-stack experience is a plus). Facilitates good architectural and product discussions. - Comfortable being hands-on with code when needed. - Deep experience with cloud and web technologies and distributed systems. - Self-motivated and comfortable operating with a high level of autonomy and responsibility. Able to think rigorously and make hard tradeoffs and prioritizations with a bias for action.

A bit about our culture: We value high autonomy, ownership, and delivering results - in short - whatever it takes to set our customers up for success. We encourage each other to push the envelope, execute quickly, and be resilient to failure. We also work occasional late nights or weekends to deliver an above-and-beyond customer experience, while respecting and celebrating each other's personal background, values and commitments. In return, we are well compensated, take pride in seeing outsized impact to our product, and have memorable experiences learning and growing alongside a truly exceptional set of peers.

About CloudTrucks

At CloudTrucks we are completely mission driven and working on a problem that affects the largest workforce in America. We help truck drivers manage their entire business and we have built an elegant app with very complex backend systems to do so.

CloudTrucks is a "business in a box” solution for truck drivers at a much lower cost using software engineering, data science and world class operations processes. Our mission is simple — to put more money in the hands of truck drivers and reduce their headaches. Our value to drivers cuts across 4 core pillars — data science (automated revenue maximization models like the optimizer), workflows (we have simplified and automated complex booking, payment and negotiation workflows), financial products (CT Cash in partnership with Visa and Stripe) and Compliance products.

Company Culture

The core values that drive our company culture are hustle and humility. We work hard, and we work smart. We solve difficult problems, and we are absolutely loyal to our team and to our mission.

We know we're tackling challenging problems and we know we need to work together to solve them. Many of us are new to this space, so we foster a culture of teaching and learning. People go out of their way to be helpful and everyone has what they need to do the best job possible.
