This means solving some of the world’s most complex challenges, while our company grows at a breakneck speed. 

We’re looking for an organized, motivated and detail-oriented person to join the Product Management Marketplace team to lead the Procure to Pay work stream.  As part of the Marketplace team, you’ll contribute to projects that enable flexport to reduce cost per shipment and to build the infrastructure that will enable Flexport scale.

  • Guide, develop and mentor more junior PMs on the Procurement team and across Marketplace. 
  • Dive deep into data to drive meaningful business decisions, ruthlessly prioritize roadmaps, and measure impact. 
  • Develop products that are intuitive and reduce the cognitive load on our operations teams and customers.
  • Learn to work with and balance the needs of a diverse set of stakeholders across Flexport’s procurement products
  • Conduct build vs buy analysis on key product areas and make recommendations. Negotiate contracts with vendors and build mutually beneficial strategic partnerships.

You should have:

  • 6-8+ years experience as a Product Manager, preferably within both startup and complex environments

  • Crystal clear written, spoken, and presentation skills, with a bias toward over-communication and inclusivity
  • Ability and desire to drive the software development lifecycle and ability to relentlessly prioritize and focus on key deliverables
  • Experience using market insights and customer research to craft long term vision and roadmaps.
