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.
