We started with invoice financing in 2017 and this has exploded in a multi-million billion opportunity to solve the payments mess for trucking and logistics companies. We help trucking companies grow their fleets and expand their businesses by advancing them money against invoices through fully digitized invoice factoring and automated payments. To help us accomplish our mission we have the best investors in Silicon Valley, like Initialized Capital, backing us.
You’ll be joining a small engineering team focused on developing impactful solutions the enable hundreds of thousands of companies to thrive (most of them small businesses). Our technology is already responsible for processing millions of dollars of transactions every month.
(Think Square for Logistics)
Why join us?
We're growing extremely fast, month over month, since we started which is allowing us to take on a larger part of the market with larger customers every subsequent month. Since we launched HaulPay at the end of 2017 we've processed more than 50,000+ freight invoices and payments.
We have Initialized Capital & MHS Capital, two of the most well-respected seed investors in Silicon Valley.
We're working on key hard tech challenges including building our own risk model based on transaction data and automating processes to enable massive scalability to the only fintech API for logistics.
Engineering at ComFreight
We have 4 engineers: 2 backend (Python) and 2 frontend (React). Additionally, we have a designer on our team who helps us think about the workflow for features visually so we can iterate those flows with the business team to ensure we've thought through the business logic.
Generally, once we accept to begin development on a task, we'll work on 2 week-long focused-projects where only critical bugs can interfere so we can get our projects completed. Any new tasks or project feature updates are pushed to next week's focus or triaged into a future sprint.
We're building two systems: one that processes financial transactions using different payment systems so we need to manage the flow of money on a digital ledger. The payments solution is being developed into a plugin and API that any logistics company can integrate with (think Stripe for logistics). Additionally, we're building out a ML team as we gain more data about the market to produce our own risk model algorithms as well as other learning systems for automating user input.
Support a publicly available plugin and supporting API so that logistics companies can integrate our payment financing and freight process automation capabilities right into their existing apps.
Build out our new web-app from scratch that will allow payors to submit and manage their payments to logistics companies online (right now they send thousands of physical checks by mail per month).
Expand our web app and API product aimed at freight brokers which will be the highest-growth market as we scale our financial product.
Working at ComFreight
On the tech side, we like people who communicate clearly, communicate early, and communicate often. We're very big on communication and like written communication for outlining large ideas and most day to day communication occurs over Slack.
We also have in-person meetings 1 – 2x/week to dive deep on complex architectural issues and get through questions that are team-wide issues. Breakouts are encouraged and we love seeing two engineers at a screen working through a hard problem together when collaboration is needed.
Lastly, we want people who stress the details because that’s what enable us to be truly extraordinary as a company. From UI/UX to backend financial management which requires project-wide logical consistencies, attention to detail ensures that we avoid hemorrhaging money especially as we process hundreds of millions of dollars through our growing pipeline of clients.
Blame-free culture, open and friendly atmosphere, always looking for alternative viewpoints and different ways to see the situation at hand. We rotate meetings so everybody has a chance to chair and
be in charge of a meeting, and we can all learn from each other's approaches. Weekly retro focussed on improving how we work and celebrating our successes.
We expect everyone to work at least 3 days/week at the office so you can take 2 days to work at home. Additionally, we don't have hard requirements for engineers to be in the office at a certain time though we do want everyone to be available or starting their workday by 10AM and to be available to solve morning issues or for quick breakout meetings or calls related to goals for the day/week.
Work from Home
Engineering team can work at home 2 days / week.
Full Medical and Dental plus 50% matching for partners/spouses. Options include Blue Shield Gold and Silver as well as Kaiser and other HMO options to name a few.
If you'd like to bring your pet to work once or twice a week we can make that happen too.
We can offer up to $5,000 in an available relocation bonus for the right candidates if the move requires transport from a different region.
We encourage new team members to attend conferences and workshops and will compensate for or contribute towards up to 2 events per year.
We have a team happy hour once per month as well as monthly birthday celebrations and outings to celebrate meeting key milestones like beach parties and other team events on a semi-regular basis.
Culture is learning and results-oriented, get stuff done and then have fun.
