The opportunity:

Flexport is a platform for global trade in an industry that comprises 12% of the global GDP.  We are the first licensed freight forwarder and customs brokerage built around a modern tech stack.  We help 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.

Exceptional software development is integral in allowing us to fulfill our mission of fixing the user experience in global trade. At Flexport you’ll develop products that are at the forefront of reshaping the entire logistics & supply chain industries. You’ll work alongside self-starters interested in solving real-world problems and streamlining the inefficiencies in the complex global trade industry. You’ll have the opportunity to reshape an industry by creating the new operating system for global trade.

Our engineers are top-notch software developers who love listening to the users, working as a team, and proactively taking the lead whenever necessary. The role involves learning the business of freight forwarding, modeling the work that people do to move freight, designing solutions to make it more efficient, and thinking innovatively to automate much of it. As a full stack Senior Software Engineer, you will be responsible for architecting, designing, developing, testing and maintaining critical forwarding related systems. In addition, as the team lead, you are expected to mentor other engineers and lead them deliver high quality results that meet customer expectations. 

About the team:

We have multiple teams in Shanghai and Shenzhen working on a suite of core products and services that enable Flexport business to scale, including Freight Services Planning, Procurement, Commerce, Security and Infrastructure, Visibility and Schedules, and so on. We are broadly leveraging optimization models, machine learning (ML) and natural language processing (NLP) to build the best solutions for our customers. We are looking for engineers who love learning, are passionate about collaborating, and desire to build solutions with a global impact.

You will:

  • Build highly available, secure, distributed systems in a microservice architecture.
  • Design, develop, test and maintain systems that represent the real-world intricacies of logistics entities, such as shipper, client, cargo, document, carrier, container, email etc.
  • Collaborate with some of the best engineers in the industry to work on complex business and technical problems.

  • You play a significant role in the career development of others, actively mentoring and educating the larger software engineering community on trends, technologies, and best practices.
  • Ensure our products maintain a high-quality bar. We believe in anticipating issues by obsessing over metrics and applying key learnings from post-mortems to all our services.
  • Tackle difficult and subtle system-level issues, emphasizing simplicity and long-lasting designs. As we extract services out of the monolith, we take pride in untangling legacy code and re-building with composability in mind.
