Job Description

Who we are

Have you ever stopped to wonder how your computer, clothes, furniture or household goods made their way to your doorstep? Most of the things in your home would have arrived here in a container on a container ship.  It is a massive industry that we all rely on but don’t think about much because it’s been done the same way for decades without much change or innovation.

NYSHEX is a well-funded Series A start-up, developing a brand-new concept that will transform and enable an industry plagued with inefficiency, volatility, and $23b of economic waste annually. The NYSHEX team is passionate about collaborating with the world’s leading ocean carriers, shippers and forwarders to bring technology and innovation to this industry we love, and we hope that you’ll be part of building this new digital foundation that will have lasting effects for years to come.
