Full Stack Engineer (Java, React)


LogisticsExchange (LE) is a fast-paced, early stage startup focused on transforming the way B2B transportation is bought and sold. LE’s digital platform allows buyers and sellers to execute binding, enforceable contracts. Automated opportunity analytics allow members to quickly identify the best fits in their portfolio for digital LE Forwards contracts. Proprietary matching and rating algorithms ensure buyers and sellers align on critical service and performance requirements. Smart, standardized contracts and active monitoring through execution ensure contractual obligations are honored. And if either counterparty’s needs change, LE’s trading platform provides the liquidity to close out positions.

Built by an experienced team with deep domain expertise, world class technical talent, and strong industry relationships, LE is backed by leading angel and venture capital investors. Having built early traction in 2017 with a set of blue chip shippers, carriers and 3PLs, the LE team is now looking to enroll additional members, expand its analytics and data science efforts, and accelerate product development.
