Build the first modern logistics platform

The opportunity:

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 Customer Platform team is responsible for developing Flexport’s external user facing applications. Our software provides a revolutionary new experience for our clients to track their shipments and place new bookings.  

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.

You Will: 

  • Be part of the Customer Platform engineering team that builds the core of the Flexport platform.
  • Craft the engineering vision and own the technical landscape for key products in the world of logistics.
  • Work closely with business partners, product managers and design to distill complex business problems into elegant technical solutions.
  • Build and launch products rapidly and incrementally. We ship to production dozens of times per day.
  • Mentor and coach other engineers in the team.

You should have:

  • 8+ years of experience writing software, and a strong engineering background.
  • Experience as a generalist working on both the frontend and backend to provide the best solutions for users.
  • A love of simple, well-tested code that is easy to extend and hard to break.
  • A bias for action. When you see a problem, you solve it.
  • The ability to convey technical ideas in common terms to business partners, product managers, designers and engineers alike.
  • Experience effectively and reliably delivering large projects, including breaking the projects down into smaller pieces.

Our stack:

On the frontend, we create our views with React, manage the flow of data with GraphQL/Relay, and test our application with Jest. On the backend, we’re in the process of decoupling our monolithic Rails app and introducing services using other languages, such as Java, Kotlin and Node.js. Our data is persisted in mostly Postgres and MongoDB.
