And we have a well-established and growing customer and partnership base across the supply chain industry.

Some highlights of working at Blume Global are:

  • Growth – professional development, company, and industry
  • Fun – free lunch Fridays, happy hours, office surprises and more
  • Humility – everyone leaves their egos at home
  • Innovation – We’re working on some really cool stuff for the supply chain, whether it’s AI, machine learning, IoT or blockchain.
