Flexport’s mission is to make global trade easy for everyone. To achieve this goal, the Flexport Design team simplifies the end-to-end user experiences for our clients, partners, and the operations teams that support them. We are seeking a seasoned design leader with strong product vision to help elevate the current offering and formulate a compelling, business, and research-supported roadmap for the future. The individual sets a high bar for quality and knows how to help product teams effectively ship at that quality. While this lead designer will be chartered with driving a specific product area at Flexport, much collaboration will be required with their Design counterparts responsible for Client, Freight Operations, and Platform aspects of the experience.
As a Lead Product Designer on Flexport OS, you will focus on driving the end-to-end product design vision for our platform products. Some of your main areas of responsibility will include, designing the user experience for our data management and machine training initiatives, developing data-centric products to reach new markets and customers, and creating a self-service developer platform to empower others to build on top of our data services and network platforms.
We believe global trade can move the human race forward. That’s why it’s our mission to make global trade easier for everyone. We aim to do this by building the Operating System for Global trade - a strategic model combining advanced technology and data analytics, logistics infrastructure, and supply chain expertise. Flexport today connects almost 10,000 clients and suppliers across 109 countries, including established global brands like Georgia-Pacific as well as emerging innovators like Sonos. Started in 2013, we've raised over $1.3B in funding from SoftBank Vision Fund, Founders Fund, GV, First Round Capital and Y Combinator. We’re excited about the three big ways we’re moving forward after our recent $1B investment from SoftBank Vision Fund in February 2019.
At Flexport, our ability to fulfill our mission of making global trade easy for everyone relies on having a diverse, dedicated and engaged workforce. That is why Flexport is committed to creating and nurturing an environment where anyone can be their authentic self. All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment regardless of race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age, physical and mental disability, health status, marital and family status, sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, military and veteran status, and any other characteristic protected by applicable law.
