How does the company support your career growth?

There are things that I hoped to do at some point in my career-I've got to do many of them in the span of one year. I feel actively involved in our growth, and I love the opportunity that I have to learn and experience different parts of the organization. I don't know that I would get this much opportunity and exposure in one role anywhere else.

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.
