An Insider's view of NEXT Trucking

What’s the vibe like in the office?

“Seeing the owners work just as hard and being present in the office inspires me to reach for higher goals.”

Sahar

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

“I look at our product as something that goes way beyond the technology itself. Creating the optimal carrier experience means getting close to our users and understanding their needs. There’s no better feeling than finding a solution that not only drives growth, but also makes drivers’ jobs a little bit easier and little bit more delightful.”

Brian

Product Manager

What makes someone successful on your team?

"As a designer, one of the most important parts of being a successful designer is to always consider the system. We’re designing a system that spans online and offline so it’s critical that you think about how each piece fits into the system as a whole."

Cole

What is your vision for the company?

“We want to change the industry by streamlining the process for drivers to book loads and manage their trucks/fleets in an easy process so that they take a little bit of stress off their plate and enjoy what they do to the fullest.”
