An Insider's view of NEXT Trucking

What’s the vibe like in the office?

“If I were to describe the vibe in one word it would be grit. Everyone here comes into the office ready to learn and band together to solve the complex problems that our drivers face everyday.”

Steven

Senior Product Manager

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

“The challenges truck drivers face, are the challenges we are dead set on solving. For far too long, drivers have been forced to deal with the inefficiencies of an archaic, tech-devoid industry. We exist to give drivers the tools to manage their workday, exceed their income goals, and run and grow their business efficiently."

Roy

Product Marketer

What makes someone successful on your team?

"I've never been around a group or people who are so passionate and singularly motivated on achieving one goal."

Aly

Head of Learning and Development

What is your vision for the company?

"At NEXT, we proud that building and delivering transformative products and experiences is a part of our company’s DNA. As we continue to expand our product portfolio and geographic footprint, we want to cement our reputation as the freight technology partner-of-choice for one of the most misunderstood and least transparent parts of supply chain."

AJ

Director of Marketing

What makes someone successful on your team?

"If you want to solve insanely complex design problems in the logistics industry, this is the place! As product design team grows, we are looking for individuals who wear different hats- you are capable of zooming out to get a big picture view of the entire process, and doesn't scared of rolling up the sleeve and dive into some messy details."
