We are building software which enables businesses to be more economically and environmentally sustainable by digitally transforming the supply chain.

About the Role

You’ll work with our CPO and our product and engineering teams to design interfaces that simplify complex problems. You’ll work primarily on designing mobile and web applications with a focus on ease of use and minimizing time to market.

We are a fast paced, high intensity team and can get somewhat obsessive about the problems we are solving. To be honest: we don’t have the luxury of much work-life balance at this point in our company’s growth.

You will design interfaces taking into account the unique needs of each category of our users:

  • Thousands of truck drivers and small fleets who use our 5F Trucking Platform ( as a business-in-a-box – like a “Shopify of Trucking”.
  • White collar professionals at large shippers (Pilgrims, Olam, Halliburton, et. al) who use our analytics and automation tooling to automate their supply chain.


  • Work directly with our CPO, product and engineering teams to rapidly solve the highest impact problems for our customers.
  • Immerse yourself in the business & company strategy to design holistic solutions.
  • Have a primary focus on UI/UX design (90% of your time), but as an early design hire you will take a “whatever needs done” approach to handle other miscellaneous projects (e.g. design a trophy for winners of an in-app challenge).


  • Bachelors in Graphic Design or similar
  • 7+ years of experience designing user interfaces.
  • Can quickly and easily understand a problem and design a solution.
  • Experience creating storyboards, workflows and UI using Figma.
  • High Impact: You’re a self-starter who can proactively identify opportunities for impact even when they’re not assigned to you.
  • Low Ego: You enjoy collaboration, feedback, and iteration.
  • Need for Speed: You are fast to respond to messages. You like shipping, and are willing to make hard tradeoffs in order to get features in the hands of customers.

An Insider's view of VORTO

What's something quirky about your company?

We listen to "Who Let the Dogs Out" almost daily at 4:30pm and have the most well stocked refridgerator in town... ranging from energy drinks, all types of La Croix, snacks galore, and even lunch choices, we're a fan of eating and drinking well. The environment feels like the cup is half-full with generosity for all of the hard work. ;)


Office Manager/Executive Administrator

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

We are an extremely collaborative team so I am always working with other groups within the company. While I am testing, I am in constant communication with our software developers; when I am presenting to clients, I am in communication with our sales team; and our operations team has daily updates on all customer activities.


Operations Manager

What are some things you learned at the company?

Even as an engineer, I’ve learned that it is crucial to understand how the user experiences our app day-to-day. Without that context, it is impossible to take full ownership for building new features. I’ve also learned how much grit and resilience it takes to deliver a product that thousands of people use every day.


AI Engineer

What unique initiatives do you have that encourage innovation?

Innovation is only valuable when it is commercializable. So many companies either a) never innovate, or b) innovate, but without ever creating any value. We invest in exposing every Vortonian to diverse aspects of our business & industry so they can innovate in ways which make an impact.


Chief Product Officer

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

Biggest problem we're solving is simplifying the supply chain industry, minimizing the number of trucks that are needed on the road, and at the same time increasing customer's earnings by eliminating non productive time (NPT) and demurrage.
