It’s our mission to make global trade easier for everyone. We aim to do this by building a new Operating System for Global trade - a strategic operating model for global freight forwarding that combines technology and analytics, logistics infrastructure, and hands-on supply chain expertise.
Why Work with Us?
Global logistics is the circulatory system for the world economy. Our global team of entrepreneurs is empowered to make the important decisions, to advocate for what is right regardless of the bottom line, and to see their ideas tested in the laboratory of the real world. We are uniquely positioned to simplify trade and built to make it happen.
The people in this office are the cream of the crop. They’re down to earth and razor-sharp. You could go up to anyone in the office, ask them a question, and they will stop whatever they were doing and help you out every time.
Sales Development Representative
What's the biggest problem your team is solving?
We are solving the extreme complexity and opacity of trucking coordination and execution in international supply chains. We bring visibility and control to our customers while also reducing operational overhead.
Senior Engineering Manager
What makes someone successful on your team?
Ownership. Our company is growing quickly and the surface area of our product is growing quickly as well. The strongest contributors identify important projects and see them through completely. They are proactive from the initial research and design phases to the post-launch productive monitoring. As Flexport grows, they emerge as natural leaders.
Senior Staff Engineer
How does your team reward individual success?
The squad model makes every team member's accomplishments integral to his/her peers success which, in turn, stimulates each us to celebrate each others wins through shoutouts on slack, nominations for projects and applause at team meetings.
I get excited about large projects where I get to own an account and help them optimize their supply chain!

Global Operations Manager
It's one big family here in Flexport Chicago! It's nice to have a personal relationship with every single one of my coworkers here. Our lunch conversations go in all sorts of crazy directions.
Sales Development Representative Team Lead
We work at the intersection of trade and the Internet. Our leadership often discusses the history of trade as context to why we’re building what we’re building. I studied global economics in college and I like that they work from a similar worldview.
Global Account Executive
We create an atmosphere that supports collaboration through social events (happy hours, fitness outings, and larger quarterly events). Flexport also hosts and plans volunteer events that give us a chance to help out in our communities.
The vibe in the office is super welcoming, inclusive, and supportive. People love congratulating one another for their hard work - it’s not uncommon to get a round of applause from the whole office!
