Accelerate Your Career Path in Technology
By Miles English, Chief Information Officer
The rapid growth of Echo’s Technology department has energized our culture and put us on the map as a destination for Chicago’s brightest minds in technology.
At Echo, we work without barriers between teams and departments to ensure a holistic approach to every project, giving team members the supportive atmosphere they need to unleash their full potential. In my experience, clearing roadblocks for my team is the best way to play to everyone’s strengths. The key to success in today’s tech space is to empower each member of your team to push his or her limits and be a force of change.
My focus is to continue our momentum and achieve even more as a team. As technology continues to develop, so must our culture. By placing an emphasis on cross-functional collaboration, open communication, and employee empowerment, everyone is able to innovate and forge his or her own path. And by putting our people in the right positions to do what they do best, we help create an atmosphere that fosters creativity and growth.
Our technology is designed to bring positive change to the logistics industry. In 2018, we launched EchoShip, a next-generation automated customer portal that provides customers the ability to quote, book, track, and pay shipments. Sourcing and moving freight are at the core of what we do, and our dedicated team allows us to see a future built on efficiency, automation, and transparent communication to better serve our customers.
Our team members have countless opportunities for accelerated career development and advancement. We offer the security and stability of a $2.5 billion organization with the energetic feel of a startup.
At Echo, technology is in our DNA. We need people who aren’t afraid to roll up their sleeves and get their hands dirty—people who want to be part of a company that’s transforming an entire industry.
