Are you interested in having a huge impact on product? From pixel to job-to-be-done, we are looking for a Product Designer to help the world's goods flow more efficiently through deep problem solving and understanding of our users.
You'll be deeply integrated into product and will learn an intricate system between many layers of complexity. Ever wondered how that phone you're looking at got into your hands from across the world? Do you know how many people were involved and why it was or wasn't late to arrive at your doorstep? The world of logistics is deeply fascinating if you take the time to look, and Logixboard is at the forefront of helping thousands of Freight Forwarders and Shippers do their jobs better.
If you are interested in solving hard problems, moving quickly and getting in on the ground-floor of a rapidly growing company, please reach out. Are you an underrepresented group in the tech industry? We'd absolutely love to hear from you.
Logixboard is a cloud platform transforming how the $2 trillion freight forwarding industry operates. Firms currently use paper, spreadsheets, and email to track their customers' shipments and provide shippers visibility. They are burdened by low-tech, hard-to-use solutions that are inefficient and costly.
Our platform integrates with existing back-office applications and serves as a digital customer engagement layer, empowering freight forwarders to do their work more efficiently. Our customers love our platform, and we're facing tremendous growth this year. Logixboard is a recent graduate of Techstars Seattle and is looking to expand our team.
Logixboard is funded by leading early-stage investors like Social Leverage, F-Prime & Founders Co-op, and is based in Seattle, WA
