Company Overview

Maven Machines is a fast-growing tech startup based in Pittsburgh that is working on building the next era of fleet management, safety, and commercial driver technologies for the transportation industry. In a few short years, we have grown from an idea to create smart, wearable technology to becoming a full-blown fleet management and telematics company that has successfully deployed to many of the nation’s top 100 fleets.

Our vision is to create products that disrupt one of the nation’s largest industries and bring trucking into the modern age. Key to this mission is developing delightful and intuitive interfaces and experiences that add immense value and change the way people think about transportation software. We are looking for a passionate, skilled,  entrepreneurially minded designer who can help us bring this vision to life.

The ideal candidate is equally comfortable listening closely to our customer’s immediate needs and feedback as well as theorizing and tackling large, abstract concepts to come up with elegant solutions and designs to a complex industry. Additionally, as one of our first full time design hires, you will have an incredible opportunity to help define and shape Maven’s design language and culture as we grow.
