An Insider's view of NEXT Trucking

What’s the vibe like in the office?

Steven

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

Ashley

Director of Product Management

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."
