About the job
At Alvys technology is at the core of our business. As a software engineer at Alvys, you will develop and operate a SaaS platform for freight transportation logistics. Alvys is used by transportation companies (carriers, brokers) to manage the various processes involved in moving freight. Alvys covers the core transportation workflows, such as sourcing, fulfillment, fleet management and accounting. Alvys consists of several applications, including a web-app used by operations staff, and a native mobile app used by drivers.
Your work will reduce repetitive tasks and allow people to substantially increase their productivity. More broadly, your work will create efficiencies in the movement of physical goods across the country, bearing a tangible impact on the supply chain.
As a senior engineer at Alvys, your job will also involve mentorship of junior engineers, influence on the technical direction of the company and promotion of engineering excellence.
This is a full-time, long-term role at an ambitious, early stage company. As such, it might require you to wear multiple hats, think creatively, and adaptively navigate unstructured terrain.
Alvys is on a mission to make transportation logistics companies more efficient.
Transportation is a complex domain that involves many moving parts, and lacks automation and standardization. The US freight industry generates $800B in annual revenue, moving $15T worth of goods $12T of which is moved by truck. The US carrier market is fragmented - there are around 700,000 carriers, 96% of which have fewer than 6 trucks, and 99% have fewer than 100. These smaller carriers have been overlooked by technology companies and lack tools to help them run their business. Alvys is solving this problem bottom up: backed by experience in operating a carrier and brokerage business, we develop technology in collaboration with our customers, creating a tight feedback cycle and allowing us to automate workflows end-to-end rather than simply building individual features. The advent of cloud and machine learning technologies creates possibilities, and at Alvys, our mission is to harness these possibilities to make supply chains more efficient. Our technology is our core competitive advantage.
You build it, you run it: rather than throwing specs over the wall to the next team, we collaborate and share ownership end-to-
Blameless Culture: we take ownership and responsibility, but we don't point We all make mistakes, but we try to do our best.
Engineering Excellence: we promote a principled approach to system engineering, involving the best techniques from practice and theory.
Trust, Transparency & Fairness: these are our core company values, and simultaneously, the underlying problems in the industry that we hope to address.
Founded on trust, transparency and fairness, Alvys is on a mission to eliminate waste by digitizing logistics workflows in freight tendering, carrier procurement, dispatch, fleet management, accounting and relationship management. By integrating these interrelated departments on an end-to-end platform, Alvys gives users complete visibility of their business and allows them to make optimal decisions, saving time and money. Accessible via web and mobile devices, Alvys automates complex tasks that typically require countless spreadsheets, notes and browser tabs. All parties involved in managing loads collaborate seamlessly across a unified platform.
