Build the programs to help Flexport grow
We’re looking for a highly capable program manager to join the Chief Technology Officer’s Office and manage key programs focused on Technology team growth and scale. This person will excel at crafting narratives and telling stories in a way that excites, educates, and brings people together.

This person understands technology in a way that allows an appreciation for the complexity of the problem, how it translates to real business impact, and then is able to weave it into a narrative that can be shared and understood by large audiences. This role is an exciting opportunity to contribute to our technology landscape and help shape and define our Technology organizational culture for the coming years.
