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.

As an early engineer on the Business Platform team, you will make an outsized impact at the company by collaborating with cross functional teams to model and automate complex business processes. Your work will be critical to CloudTruck's ability to scale and grow as a business. You will leverage your skills and expertise to make key technical decisions and deliver products that meaningfully impact and empower the truck drivers on our platform, as well as our internal-facing teams.

Examples of projects that you may work 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 - Design, test, ship, and maintain solutions to problems and products. - Take complete ownership over projects and features. Work across a range of systems and technologies to deliver end-to-end solutions. - Partner with cross functional teams to ensure a complete and delightful customer experience. - Help set and improve our engineering processes, standards, and tooling.

What we are looking for - Strong technical background, including 4+ years of industry experience as a software engineer working on production systems. - Self-motivated and comfortable operating in a dynamic environment. - Takes a user-focused approach, shipping incrementally with rapid iterations. - Strong communication and collaboration skills. As a small engineering team, we work closely with each other and other cross functional teams across the company. - Experience with web technologies and system design.

Nice to haves: - Experience with our technical stack: Python, Django, PostgreSQL, React, Typescript, Javascript, Google Cloud. - Full-stack experience.

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.
