How does the company support your career growth?

There is no set track for career growth so you can take advantage of a lot very quickly. You can work on different projects and teams, develop new processes, build and improve something internally - you are able to advance and get real hands on experience.

What is your vision for the company?

We are ultimately building a world supply-chain network that fits within a much broader vision of applying modern technology, data science, and data flow technologies to an industry that's as old as time.

Will Hansmann

What are some social events your company does?

I love being apart of our Culture Committee. If you have an idea, you're encouraged to share! The committee includes team members across the company and we regularly host events like potlucks, lunch and learns, company outings, volunteer events, intramural sports, & happy hours. The people that I work with are the best- never a dull moment.
