Military Operations Pipeline

We are reinventing global trade.

Flexport is building the operating system for global trade. We are a licensed freight forwarder and customs brokerage built around a modern technology stack. We help some of the world's fastest growing brands manage their international supply chains, providing a fully-managed service for moving products between any two places on the planet. Started in 2013, we've now raised $1.3B from investors including Peter Thiel of Founders Fund, Softbank, DST, Google Ventures, First Round Capital, Bloomberg Beta, Felicis Ventures, Y Combinator, and more.

Flexport is excited to offer military veterans the opportunity to transition their high powered operations, logistics, security, global affairs, and leadership skills and launch their civilian careers into the world of business and technology. We know searching for a full-time role after years of military service is as much about finding a company where you can picture yourself being successful, as it is about finding the right role. Flexport looks forward to placing top tier military talent into a number of high impact roles within our global operations teams, where the skills they developed throughout their service will help us take our business to the next level.

Our Operations roles are designed to problem solve impactful operational challenges as part of our global team while developing specialized expertise in the world of global logistics and trade. As the expert who has a deep understanding of your region’s network and processes, you have the unique opportunity to take optimization opportunities and build solutions to streamline operations. You will be charged with helping Flexport account management teams and clients solve exceptional challenges in order to move their shipments in less time with lower costs and via improved productivity by your team, unblocking issues and establishing procedures to prevent them in the future.
