We are building the future of freight
At Mothership, we believe in unlocking the world's potential through speeding up the delivery of everything people need. Started in 2017, we’re backed by some of venture capital’s best investors and have already become the logistics backbone for many of today’s most innovative companies.
To double down on that success, we’re looking for a manager with a proven track record and emphasis on structure and process to lead our carrier partnership organization. If that's you, come help us reshape logistics. Together we'll replace tired and comfortable incumbents with a modern marketplace built around speed, ease of use and fairness. 
As the Carrier Sales Manager, you’ll track, project and report on our carrier sales to ensure we maximize our efficiency while scaling rapidly. Once you’ve settled in, get ready to start the process of helping build and lead a world class carrier partnership team around you.

  • We need to do things quickly and we need to do them well. Striking that balance can be challenging and this needs to be a strength of yours
  • Act as an entrepreneur with the team to get things done with autonomy
  • Find, hire and train exceptional carrier sales talent
