Flexport is building the first modern logistics platform to make global trade easier for everyone. We are solving complex problems on a global scale, and disrupting a multi-trillion dollar industry that has remained stubbornly unchanged.
The data platform forms the backbone for transporting data across our systems to drive Flexport Insights. Our team mission is to empower our engineering teams with common infrastructure to make the world's trade data accessible for modern analytics and machine learning. We're at an inflection point in our company's data narrative: we're moving to a modern Data Mesh Architecture in the midst of a company-wide SOA migration, and are looking for engineers to lead us in this transition.
High-quality software development is integral in allowing us to fulfill our mission of making global trade easier for everyone. At Flexport you’ll develop systems that are at the forefront of reshaping the entire logistics & supply chain industries.
Our continuous releases are integrated with Buildkite and Github. Our data stack is in the process of moving from a Data Monolith on top of Snowflake, S3, Kinesis, Fivetran, and Airflow on Kubernetes into a Data Mesh architecture. Our stack is hosted on AWS using Docker and orchestrated primarily with Kubernetes.
