Engineering Manager

We are reinventing global trade.

Flexport helps more than 10,000 clients and suppliers lead all aspects of their supply chain operations. Started in 2013, we've raised over $1.3B from investors that include the Founders Fund, Google Ventures, First Round Capital, Bloomberg Beta, Y Combinator, Wells Fargo, & Softbank. 

With offices on three continents, our team is as global as our client base and we’re excited to continue building a product and service they love. Wherever you are, whichever role you play, you’re guaranteed to share your day with committed, encouraging, and resourceful team members. 

The Consolidation execution team is responsible for building technology to automate the workflows between Flexport and our service providers (carriers, WH Partners, co-loaders, vendors, booking agents, Partner Freight Forwarders) aiming to drive on-time performance (OTP) and make sure we deliver goods within the promised timelines to our customers. 

We're looking for an Engineering Manager to help develop products that are at the forefront of reshaping the entire logistics & supply chain industry. You’ll work alongside self-starters interested in solving real-world problems and streamlining the inefficiencies in the complex global trade industry. You’ll have the opportunity to reshape an industry by creating a new operating system for global trade.

What you’ll do:

  • Lead, mentor, and coach a group of talented engineers, and help them to progress in their careers.
  • Empower the engineering team to achieve a high level of technical productivity, reliability, and simplicity
  • Create the engineering roadmap, and own the technical landscape for the systems driving Customs at Flexport.
  • Work closely with our business partners and the product manager to distill complex business problems into robust technical solutions.
  • Recruit new engineers to continue to expand our teams

What you’ll need:

  • 2+ years of experience managing a team of engineers
  • 5+ years of experience writing software and strong engineering background
  • Ability to set technical vision for larger projects
  • Ability to work well with others and collaborate across teams
  • Have experience hiring and building diverse and inclusive teams
  • Strong analytical problem-solving skills
  • A "compliance first" attitude to keep our regulators happy and enthusiastic about Flexport since we operate in a heavily regulated industry.
