About Flexport

Flexport's mission is to make global trade easier for everybody. We are connecting humanity in a seamless web of global trade with our unique blend of software, human expertise, and physical infrastructure.

Our platform connects all the roles in the supply chain to improve the user experience and drive down transaction costs of international logistics, while helping companies make more data-driven decisions about where, when and what products to ship.

About the role

Global Problems. Global Impact.

Flexport’s mission is to make global trade easy for everyone. We are re-making a trillion dollar industry that touches every person on Earth, which means solving some of the global community’s most complex challenges. We are looking for makers who love learning, are passionate about collaborating, and desire to build solutions with a global impact.

We are hiring engineers across all experience levels.

What you'll do

  • Craft the engineering vision, and own the technical landscape, for a major domain in the world of logistics that powers global trade.
  • Design systems that represent the real-world intricacies of logistics entities, such as cargo, routing, customs, and pricing.
  • Work closely with business partners and product managers 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.
  • Geek out about shipping and logistics. (We do this often.)

What you'll build

  • Figure out the most efficient way to pack our 747 freighter.
  • Determine, in real time, the cost to move freight between any two points in the world. *Automate archaic filing processes and save the operations team thousands of phone calls per week.
  • Manage and track fleets of trucks as they pick up and deliver cargo.
  • Deliver supply chain insights to logistics teams via a world-class analytics experience.
  • Predict capacity on container ships and match cargo to space on those ships.
  • Bring trade to everyone in the world.

What you'll bring

  • 3+ years of experience writing software, and a strong engineering background.
  • A love of simple, well-tested code that is easy to extend and hard to break.
  • The ability to convey technical ideas in common terms to business partners, product managers, and engineers alike.
  • A bias for action. When you see a problem, you solve it.
  • Optional: experience in Ruby, Rails, PostgreSQL, GraphQL, React, Modern JavaScript, and/or Flow.
  • Non-optional: an aptitude for learning quickly.
Technology

Our continuous releases are integrated with Buildkite and Github. 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, Node.js and Go. Our data is persisted in mostly Postgres and Redis. Our stack is hosted on AWS using Docker.
