About the role

Exo Freight provides next-generation technology that is transforming trucking logistics. Every day in the US, there are still hundreds of thousands of truck loads that are booked and coordinated by phone, fax or email. Exo Freight automates the process and adds logistics, banking, and management technology to help shippers like Walmart manage and source trucking capacity, and to help trucking companies manage their fleet and get paid quickly. Our starting point is open deck shipping - a $135 Billion dollar market - which is how you transport large and odd shaped loads.

We have clear product market fit with over $2m per month revenue growing over 20% MoM. We just closed a large Series A round and are dramatically scaling up the company and engineering organization as quickly as possible.

About the Role:

You will be part of a talented and quickly growing team. We have a product-oriented engineering culture and are looking for folks who bring ideas and energy to meetings and who are just as comfortable engaging in a design or business discussion as they are writing great code. While your core role will be as an engineer, you will be responsible for bringing ideas from start to finish and as such you will get experience talking to stakeholders, tracking metrics, working with designers etc.

What We’re Looking For:

  • You are a highly knowledgeable and experienced software engineer with meaningful back end experience
  • You bring product and business ideas to meetings and are naturally a product owner, not a ticket-taker
  • You are used to using data to track product success and make decisions
  • You are excited to help set a direction for the engineering team and play a part in the overall engineering vision
  • You are excited to own significant areas of an engineering stack, including leading other team members


Need to have:

  • 5+ years of full-time employment working on web applications, ideally at high growth companies
  • Significant experience with Python
  • Some experience with a web framework (e.g. React, Angular, Vue)
  • Familiarity with coding best practices, system architecture, unit testing and database design
  • The ability to learn new technologies quickly
  • The drive to own a growing piece of an expanding organization
  • Excellent communication skills

Experience nice to have:

  • Django
  • Kubernetes
  • Typescript
  • PostgreSQL
  • React
  • Google Cloud (kubernetes, cloud functions, cloud run, redis, storage, etc)
  • CI/CD pipeline experience is a plus
  • Experience with large-scale A/B testing and metrics-based product planning

Note - this is a fully remote role and you do NOT need to be based in the US. But you will be expected to work (as close as possible to) US time zones so you can collaborate well with the team. Salary is competitive and depends on location, we will discuss this early in the process.
