Hello, we're Forager

We're building an automated, freight-matching marketplace that connects cross-border shippers (customers) with their optimal carrier (trucking companies) based on region, price, and service rating.

Why Work with Us?

It might be cliché, but Forager is a company that cares about its people. Everyone has a voice, from the greenest intern to the most seasoned executive, and we believe those voices have value. If you're looking to grow your network, develop professionally, and play an active role in building an exceptional business, we have a place for you.

An Insider's view of Forager

What’s the vibe like in the office?

It's definitely lively! We have a great sense of camaraderie, so we're pretty casual overall. Whether we’re cracking jokes or putting our heads down and getting to work, we all share the collective goal of building something great.

UX/UI Designer

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

SaaS tools help a lot, but if I'm working with someone outside of Product, I always invite them out to lunch. Knowing someone on a more personal level helps you understand the context behind their ideas. You get more insight into their problems and that informs your solutions. I collaborate best over burgers!

Claude

Product Manager

What makes someone successful on your team?

Empathy for sure. To be a successful software engineer, especially at a collaborative company like Forager, you have to view the world through a distinctly human lens. At the end of the day, we're not just writing code in a vacuum. We're writing code for other people.

Chris

Senior Software Engineer

How do your team's ideas influence the company's direction?

Forager's tech is built by and for logistics professionals, so obviously the team's ideas and experiences are key to its development. Their feedback actively shapes our platform. Once you know our team you can see their fingerprints on everything we do, because everything we do is a team effort.

Jessie

Chief Operations Officer

How does the company support your career growth?

As someone who has been deeply interested in entrepreneurship my entire life, the crash course I've gotten in starting, scaling, and innovating a new business has been invaluable! The opportunity to learn and expand my skill set is my favorite part of being a Forager.
