Welcome to Convoy
Our passionate team is committed to our mission of transporting the world with endless capacity and zero waste. Founded in 2015, Convoy has quickly grown to over 350 employees. We’re one of the few hyper-scaling startups based in Seattle, and we’re actively building a strong, diverse team of brilliant people who want to innovate an industry.
Health and Wellness:
Taking care of your health comes first. Convoy covers 100% of your medical, dental, and vision premiums, and 85% for your family. We also provide access to the gym and showers in our building.
Enjoy catered meals multiple times a week, plus fully stocked fridges and pantries to keep you running full.
We transport the world; – the least we can do is help get you to work. Every employee receives a fully paid Orca Card to get you around on the bus, light rail, or water taxi. We also provide locked bike storage if you prefer to pedal in.
Life outside of work matters. Convoy has a flexible vacation policy, and we don’t track vacation or sick time, so take the time off you need. We also offer generous parental leave for those expecting new additions to their family.
We offer market competitive compensation, including stock options and a 401k plan to help save for retirement.
“Working at Convoy has challenged me to be my best self. I feel supported by my peers and managers and have endless opportunity to grow and take charge of my destiny. Don’t miss a chance to transform a global industry, and have a blast doing it!”

Our Core Values
Always Have a Sense of Urgency
Don’t put off until tomorrow what can be done today. We think and act in days instead of weeks. Fast is better than perfect.
Bring Out the Best in Others
Leaders succeed by creating an environment where others do their best work, and by making their peers, team members, and managers more successful.
Love Problems, Not Solutions
We don’t get so fixated on a solution that we lose sight of the problem. The best solution wins—no matter the source.
Know why before taking action or investing time. We give context, set clear goals, and use independent judgment. We don’t do anything just because “someone said so” or “it felt right.”
We challenge ourselves to think at uncomfortable levels and aspire for more. No one will set the bar higher than we do.
Challenge Ideas, Respect Decisions
Speak up and engage in candid debate but commit to the decision once it’s made.
Earn it Through Results
We leave entitlements at the door and achieve our goals by delivering results, not by managing perceptions or going through the motions. We take ownership of the outcomes, not just the inputs.
We’re intimate with the details of our business and we investigate anecdotes. We’re subject matter experts in our business and roles. When we have to make trade offs for speed, we call it out.
Our focus is a limited resource. We invest it into the advantages we create for ourselves and our partners. Elsewhere, we choose the known solution.
Listen first, admit mistakes, speak candidly, and treat others respectfully. We live and die by our trust in each other.
We learn from our failures to continuously make ourselves and the company better. Rapidly recovering from mistakes is as valuable as making the right call in the first place.
