Product Manager II, Workflow Automation

The opportunity:

Flexport’s mission is to make global trade easy for everyone. To achieve this goal, the Application Platform team creates products to empower other Flexport teams to effectively develop applications. We are building innovative products that will make an unprecedented impact on the freight forwarding business. 

As a Product Manager for Workflow Automation, you will develop and execute a roadmap to help us build products that automate tasks and configure business rules for global trade.

You will:

  • Own and deliver complex features and products that improve the end-to-end customer experience
  • Inspire and lead cross functional teams of engineers, product managers, designers, data analysts, and domain experts
  • Participate in research and user discovery with internal product teams and external partners
  • Become a domain expert, deeply understanding Flexport’s systems and the trade landscape to solve real problems with technology
  • Work with teams across China and United States

You should have:

  • Must have 3 to 5 years experience as a Product Manager, preferably within a startup environment
  • Crystal clear communication and presentation skills
  • Ability to manage multiple stakeholders and build consensus
  • Ability to manage a complex set of products at different stages of their lifecycle
  • Experience driving impact through cross-functional leadership
  • Eagerness to elevate the Product Management team by mentoring others
  • Bonus: Logistics or a SaaS Mid-Market / Enterprise Product experience
