Build the user experience that powers global trade 

 

The opportunity:

We are looking for a seasoned product management leader to create world-class customer experiences that progress the evolution of global trade. You’ll be responsible for the development of the Flexport Client App, the industry-leading global trade platform that provides our customer with unprecedented visibility and control over their supply chain. This puts you at the core of Flexport’s mission to fix the UX of global trade.

 

With a customer-first mindset and deep empathy for customer needs, you will manage a team of product managers and work alongside a team of highly-skilled engineers, designers, data scientists and freight forwarding experts in building the interface between our technology, our customers, and the movement of their goods. The products you build will empower our customers to collaborate more seamlessly with their trade partners, optimize their end-to-end supply chains, and as a result run more successful businesses. You’ll develop seamless end-to-end user experiences as well as platform frameworks and components (like search, dashboard, and reporting experiences) for other teams to tie their products into. This unlocks the promise of a modular platform that is centered around our customer needs and provides them with the “single pane glass” for managing their supply chain.

  • Realize this vision through leading and inspiring your team of product managers and a cross-functional team of designers, engineers, data scientists, and operations specialists.
  • Become a domain expert: Gain a deep understanding of relevant technology & industry trends and competitive dynamics, and form a perspective on how Flexport fits into it all.
  • Make data driven decisions and implement metrics to manage your team’s progress and impact.

 

You should have:

  • At least 5 years of Product Management experience.
  • A track record of creating design-led world-class customer experiences.
  • Technical competence; might not be an expert, but can talk shop with the best of them.
  • Experience collaborating with and inspiring engineering teams with a focus on accelerating development velocity.
  • Comfortable in a startup-like environment and can operate independently to build and execute products.
  • Excellent verbal and written communication skills.
  • Ability to manage up and drive consensus among stakeholders.
