We are building the future of freight

Mothership’s groundbreaking technology is unlocking the world’s potential by making freight delivery more efficient. Started in 2017, we’re backed by some of venture capital’s best investors and have already become the logistics backbone for many of today’s most innovative companies.

Our mission is to provide reliable, lightning-fast logistics, powered by the best technology and delivered by the most helpful humans.

As a Staff Software Engineer on the Carrier Initiatives team, you will be responsible for designing, implementing, and maintaining a real-time vehicle routing and dispatch system, as well as building the backend for our mobile app that powers our carrier network across dozens of cities. You will work closely with a cross-functional team of engineers, product managers, and data scientists to build scalable and reliable systems that meet the demands of our growing carrier network.

Your work here will help optimize thousands of shipments into efficient routes, maximize profits and carrier earnings, and most-importantly deliver freight on-time, 100% of the time. You will contribute to generating new work opportunities for independent carriers across the country, driving a new generation of owner-operators.

This is a rare opportunity to be part of a high-performing team of innovators leading the disruption of a $100+ billion dollar tech-starved industry. This role, however, is not for everyone. You
must have a passion for solving complex problems with innovative solutions. You must be the kind of person who thrives on not being told what to do, and finds satisfaction in identifying and solving problems in real time.

Design dispatch strategies that route and allocate shipments to the optimal carrier by leveraging real-time vehicle locations, volume capacities, time constraints, and more
Identify and solve strategically important problems and improve inefficiencies in our delivery process
Conduct code reviews and mentor junior engineers
