Position description

Everstream Analytics delivers a range of predictive analytics solutions that enable supply chain and logistics professionals around the world to get in front of costly delays and disruptions. For far too long, companies have been playing a never-ending game of catch-up with events outside their control – weather, supplier issues, port strikes, political unrest, a global pandemic… you name it. If you want to get ahead of it all, you’ve got to think bigger, see farther, and act sooner. That’s the Everstream Analytics approach. Through our unique capabilities, companies like Google, Schneider Electric, Unilever, and Campbell’s can grow and protect more revenue. 

Our ability to deliver uniquely valuable insights comes from our world-class team, the support of our strategic partners and Investors and what we’ve learned from our clients through developing data-driven solutions for global brands. Everstream Analytics. Get in front of what’s ahead.TM

OUR VALUES

We recognize that to consistently deliver value to our clients we need to be outward looking and highly collaborative. The foundation for this is our culture, which emphasizes three core values: Trust, Transparency and Respect. We hold each other to these values and expect our clients to do so as well.

OUR HISTORY

Everstream’s power to deliver comes from the merger of two companies with unique capabilities and histories of groundbreaking innovation: Riskpulse and Resilience360.   

Riskpulse was created in 2007 to help companies combat the growing challenges of weather-related business continuity challenges. In 2015 Riskpulse merged with Earthrisk, adding advanced environmental data science capabilities, and setting the foundation for our advanced predictive analytics that we deliver today. 

Resilience360 was incubated in DHL’s Global Innovation Center in 2012 following global catastrophes in 2011 to help DHL’s clients be better prepared for and responsive to supply chain disruptions and has grown into the leading supply chain risk management platform. 

In 2018 Columbia capital committed $21 million to the growth of Resilience360 through organic growth and acquisitions and in 2019 led the acquisition of Riskpulse with Greenspring Associates joining the associated funding round. DHL remains a major shareholder. The two companies, teams and solutions came together in 2020 and in 2021 were relaunched as Everstream Analytics. 

Thanks to our remarkable people we are at the forefront of change and bringing cutting-edge products and services to market. We focus on growth, so our people, our business, and our customers can achieve their full potential.  Our culture is cultivated from resiliency, responsiveness and critical thinking and are integrated into every aspect of what we do. If you share in our passion to revolutionize the supply chain industry with disruptive technology, we want you to fast-forward your career at Everstream Analytics.
