About Flock Freight

Flock Freight is a Google Venture funded startup in San Diego using some serious tech to completely disrupt and reimagine the $40 Billion North American LTL freight industry.

A series of cutting-edge optimization algorithms enable Flock Freight to provide a superior shipping experience for thousands of customers. The unique technology developed by Flock Freight increases the speed, efficiency, and safety of moving freight in an industry that is plagued by painful inefficiencies.

Job Description

In the past four years, Flock Freight has grown over 25 times in size and has become one of the largest startups in San Diego. We’ve done some of our best work in the midst of a global pandemic and even hired over 75 new team members during the crisis.

Whether we’re logging on from home or from the office, our mission remains the same: To reinvent North America’s $400-billion freight industry by relentlessly eliminating inefficiency and waste through algorithmic pooling. We’re using our proprietary technology to guarantee carbon neutral shared truckload service, the faster, safer, greener — just better — way to ship. 

As the first and only company in the freight space to earn a B Corp certification, we’re driven to provide a net-zero shipping option that reduces our industry’s carbon footprint. Our commitment to do the right thing doesn’t stop at the environment though; we’re tackling initiatives in many areas to build an inherently sustainable business model and a high-performance, high-care culture. 

Our team and our investors are extremely passionate about our pledge to use shipping as a force for good. SoftBank, Volvo Group Venture Capital, SignalFire, GLP Capital Partners, and GV (formerly Google Ventures) recently invested millions in our Series C round of funding, validating our vision to transform the freight industry.

This pursuit would be nothing without our brilliant people, who obsess over growing our customer base, developing our carrier network, and improving our technology platform.

Job Responsibilities:

  • Process cash application and bank deposits and follow up with AP and AR departments for any variances on a daily basis;
  • Follow up with customers regarding unapplied payments in a timely fashion;

  • Maintain prepaid expense reconciliations and amortize balances over service period;
  • Manage corporate credit card expense coding and collection of receipts on monthly basis;
  • Willingness to handle transactional data and dig into details when necessary;
  • Prepare month-end balance sheet account reconciliations;
  • Timely preparation of monthly bank reconciliations; and
  • Develop and maintain thorough knowledge and understanding of the company’s accounting policies, financial systems, transaction processes, internal controls and chart of accounts.

Requirements:

  • 2-4 years relevant work experience
  • CPA or public accounting experience preferred
  • Bachelor’s degree in accounting, finance or a related field

  • Grow your career with San Diego’s fastest-growing company
  • Be part of a team that is changing the freight industry
