Join BuyCo and be a part of a team of individuals passionate about logistics. We created BuyCo with the desire to improve collaboration in the supply chain and to assist professionals to better achieve their objectives.

Our genesis

Carl Lauron, our CEO, created BuyCo in 2015.

Carl is a top 1% engineering school alumni (école des Mines), a skilled drummer and a big fan of algorithms. He is also a shipping veteran, having previously served as Head of Innovation at CMA CGM.

Carl founded BuyCo based on two key observations:

  • Firstly, container shipping is a complex operation that involves many people, different processes, vast amounts of information, and numerous time zones.
  • Secondly, the shipping business is not widely digitised. It relies on a proliferation of heterogeneous tools that do not communicate well together such as TMS, email, and Excel sheets.

BuyCo was established to help our customers (importers and exporters) to simplify, consolidate, and monitor the operations involved in transporting a container from point A to point B.

Your life at BuyCo 

Reasons why you will love to work with us

Make a must-needed impact in the industry

Come and revolutionise an old industry! How old, you ask? Well, imagine finding a Bill of Lading, in ancient Rome, which is still in use today. That’s how old the maritime shipping industry is and some of its processes are.

Fun fact 1:
Unless you’re reading this on a mountaintop, 90% of the things around you have been transported by container.

Fun fact 2:
It’s one of the few sectors where when the price of the service increases, the quality of that service deteriorates.

Maritime transport is massive and complex! If you enjoy solving tricky issues, come and help people all over the world do a complicated job.

Work for a startup that’s not
quite a startup

Although we consider ourselves a startup, the expertise of our founders makes it an already well-structured company.

And that makes a difference! As we work in an evolving environment, we strive to be flexible and grant our team members a lot of autonomy.. We do this with experts in each of their business segments, with a product whose “market fit” has been validated and has a clear roadmap.

We have developed salary grids to provide fair and up to market compensation, as well as a career path to define expectations in roles and give visibility on career options.

Our recruitment processes are both clear and fast. On average, the recruitment process lasts 21 days, from your first conversation with our Talent Acquisition Manager to the offer letter. And if we decide to work with you, you will receive the offer in less than 3 days.

Help reduce our customers’ CO₂ footprint

BuyCo helps customers search for routes with the lowest CO₂ emissions, making it easy for them to select better options and reduce their carbon footprint.

We also provide tools to measure and compensate for their CO₂ emissions through comprehensive reporting, thereby allowing them to assess their emissions and balance their carbon footprint.

Finally, we are engaged in the Co₂ntrol project

Be part of a multicultural team

As you may already know, BuyCo has 12 nationalities represented among its employees, with people working all over the globe. If you enjoy speaking English and working with people from different cultures and backgrounds, then you will fit right in here.

Help us be more in touch with our feminine side

We know that women apply less often than men, and as we work in logistics and tech, our parity ratio is only 70% men and 30% women. We deeply value female candidates and are committed to improving gender balance in our company.
