Program Manager, Process Design & Improvement

Company: Convoy
Location: Seattle
Posted on: April 9, 2021

Job Description:

Program Manager, Process Design & Improvement Convoy is transforming the $800 billion trucking industry. Our mission is to transport the world with endless capacity and zero waste. The industry is huge and so is the opportunity to change the way freight moves. The next time you're out driving and see an 18-wheeler on the road, that truck is empty 35% of the time. When big trucks drive empty, they throw unnecessary CO2 into the atmosphere. In fact, empty trucks generate more than 76 million metric tons of wasted carbon emissions every year. At Convoy, our digital freight network helps reduce those empty miles and cut carbon waste by nearly half. This is your opportunity to collaborate with an incredible group of people and help transform the freight industry. Join Convoy and help move the world forward. About you: You are a proficient program owner who loves optimizing processes by constantly designing, experimenting, and iterating.

  • Innovate on behalf of our operations associates to ensure that the programs you are driving maximize their mindshare by empowering the operations team with the tools, time, and focus to constantly exceed our customers' expectations.
  • Develop scalable solutions and key performance indicators to monitor operations performance. Perform complex data investigation to identify opportunities and inform priorities.
  • Head cross-functional teams to identify the biggest opportunities to reduce costs, root cause problems, identify data and forecasting needs, and implement product or process changes to fix them. Passionately drive a culture of continuous improvement and operational excellence.-- We're looking for someone who has:
    • A Bachelor's degree required, preferably in Industrial Engineering, Supply Chain, Transportation, Operations or other quantitative field. Masters preferred.
    • 5+ years of experience in a process improvement role in process improvement, program management, operations, logistics, manufacturing, or a similar field.--
    • Expertise in a variety of process design and improvement techniques. Six Sigma green belt preferred.
    • The ability to break down high-level business problems into concrete solutions.

    • A track record of tangible results piloting and implementing processes in Operations.
    • Exceptional communication skills. Ability to empathize with stakeholder needs and drive alignment across multiple teams.
    • Sound organizational and time management skills; ability to prioritize workload and manage multiple projects and tasks.
