Senior Front End Engineer



Software Engineering
Sydney, NSW, Australia
Posted on Friday, November 10, 2023

Our mission at Ofload is to achieve zero waste in trucking by digitising the transport industry.

In Australia, currently 30% of trucks drive empty and a further 50% are under utilised amounting to mass inefficiency and detrimental environmental impacts. Since 2020 we have scaled to a team of over 130, removed nearly 5 million empty kilometres from our roads and have planted over 11,000 trees to offset our carbon footprint in partnership with One Tree Planted.

In 2022, we supercharged our growth through the acquisition of logistics experts CIA Logistics, raised $60m in Series B funding and were recognised by the Australian Financial Review as one of Australia’s Most Innovative Companies.

We are looking to grow our team and welcome people excited by the opportunity to disrupt the logistics industry!
