Why you should join TrueNorth

Traditional trucking companies still run on paper, emails, phone calls, and snail mail. They’re inefficient and bloated. The pressure of low margins suffocates the truckers who actually do the work.

Our software cuts out the inefficiencies, and we pass the savings through to our truckers. Instead of paper-pushers and endless phone calls, they get an end-to-end solution: customer management, load coordination, automated invoicing, a real-time financial dashboard, a single place to manage their business.

Our expertise: cofounders Sanjaya and Jin previously worked at an autonomous trucking company together. Jin also grew up in a family of independent truckers. Sanjaya built hardware & software systems at Altera, Quettra, SimilarWeb, and Scotty Labs; Jin studied Aerospace at MIT and helped scale Zenefits and Intercom.

We're a team of 15 - the majority of us are women and/or POCs. We don't just value diversity, we cherish it. And we mean it.
