Greetings! I am Tarun, the COO at Boxhub. My passion for high-performing teams and experience in optimizing sales strategies and driving revenue has led me to spearhead our dynamic sales team. As we go through rapid growth at Boxhub, there is no shortage of opportunities for talented Outbound Business Development Representatives to join the team, who will have the opportunity to go through Sales Bootcamp training, a clear career trajectory, and the chance to close to grow into a new role for Boxhub and make a lasting impact delighting our customers and disrupting an entire industry.

Boxhub is not only a tech company; we also sell Shipping containers to people who need them. Every day, our sales teams navigate conversations with customers they’re closing to ensure our delivery of shipping containers can succeed as we deliver 8-10 thousand pounds of steel across dry land and terrain.

Working with Boxhub will offer you new problems to solve, which, in turn, offers new skills to add to your tool belt.

Our Mission

We believe that by giving our customers better access to containers, while improving the inherently broken supply chain, we can generate a substantial positive impact and help save thousands of tons of CO2 per year.

Boxhub is well funded by some of the most successful investors in the tech industry, founded by long-term shipping industry experts, and led by award-winning entrepreneurs. We were recently listed by VCs as one of the most promising marketplaces of 2022 and are looking for new team members who are equally passionate about changing an entire industry.
