Office Manager/Exec Team Assistant

About Us:
We are building a company at the intersection of tech and logistics; creating a high achieving, thoughtful, inclusive, and people-centric culture. We're a group of passionate professionals with backgrounds across supply chain, logistics, bots, product, and engineering. 
Working together, we are creating a better transportation experience for our Team, Carriers, and Customers. We have a loft space in Fulton Market that is built around collaboration and openness. It is also dog friendly and has a meditation room!
CoLane (formerly Fraight AI) is a workflow automation company disguised as a freight brokerage. We’re automating the $300B Contract Truckload Freight Market with a Human + Machine, tech-enabled services approach.
We're building Archie (our AI bot) to be able to automate 80% of the boring, routine tasks that are critical to the life of a freight broker, allowing our team to deliver quality and consistency while focusing on problems only people can solve. 
Our leadership has founded 7 companies (including 5 exits) and CoLane has been recognized by Built-In Chicago as 50 Startups to Watch in 2018, ChicagoInno, and FreightWaves Best in Show.
