About Tive

Take surprises out of your supply chain.

Job Description

Whether companies produce computers, drugs, berries, or detergent, they have to get those goods from their facility to the consumer.  Unfortunately, over $100B of goods are lost or damaged while in transit.  Tive eliminates this waste by allowing companies to act on in-transit incidents before they happen.
The Tive tracker is a small device that measures the condition of a shipment (location, temperature, shock, etc.) and sends that information to the Tive web application where customers can configure what happens when the tracker detects an issue.  Tive customers join because of the market leading product, but stay because everyone on the Tive team goes above and beyond to ensure their shipments arrive safely.
Tive is looking for a Senior Shipper/Receiver who will work closely with operations to promptly receive in material from suppliers, pick, pack and ship orders to customers and support inventory management. Additional activities may include supporting our returns and refurbishment process. Attention to detail and hustle is an absolute requirement to succeed at this role.

    • Receive incoming/returned products and unpack, verify, and refurbish.

    • Track shipments and resolve delays with carriers (e.g. FedEx).
    • Call or email carriers, brokers, and internal staff.
    • Obtain quotes to determine lowest cost routing for domestic and international shipments
    • Maintain and coordinate stock in remote depots with overseas partners.
