Build the programs to help Flexport grow

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 Opportunity:

Flexport is embarking on the journey to be a Tech Platform company, having high-quality and reliable data is a prerequisite. This is achieved by having a solid foundational data model and sound data quality management processes. TradeGraph Data Authority (TGDA) is the foundational step in this direction, responsible for maintaining the integrity and accuracy of the state of the Trade Network data. TGDA acts as a “digital twin” to the real-world status of the logistics and trade transactions supporting our internal applications such as carrier services such as Ocean, Air, Trucking, Air, Customs, Finance, and enabling use cases such as improving cost to serve, making fast decisions, driving optimizations such as improving container fill rates, improving delivery schedules, and shaving millions in late fees.  

We're looking for a Software Engineering Manager to develop products that are at the forefront of reshaping the entire logistics & supply chain industries. You’ll detangle a monolithic system and migrate it to microservice architecture.  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.

You will:

  • 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 TGDA at Flexport.
  • Work closely with our business partners and product managers to distill complex business problems into robust technical solutions.
  • Recruit new engineers to continue to expand our teams.

You should have:

  • At least 3 years of experience managing a team of 5+ software engineers
  • Ability to set technical vision for larger projects and deliver on metric-based goals in a timely manner
  • Ability to work well with others and collaborate across teams
  • Have experience hiring and building diverse and inclusive teams
  • Strong analytical problem-solving skills
