Principal Product Manager, SMB
Build the platform that powers global trade
Small and Midsize Business (SMB)
Flexport’s mission is to make global trade easy for everyone.
While developments in ecommerce and marketplace technology have enabled millions of small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) to source goods and reach consumers globally, these businesses still struggle to participate in the highly manual and legacy world of global trade. We believe entrepreneurs should be focused on growing their business instead of having to worry about the intimate mechanics of freight forwarding. At Flexport, we aim to build SMBs a platform to make shipping from and to anywhere an easy and seamless experience that just works!
The Flexport SMB team is focused on taking care of this undifferentiated heavy lifting and leveling the playing field using tech instead of human touch. We want to make the experience so simple and easy that re-stocking an item for sale is a one click action, instead of the days of effort it takes today! Come distill the complicated world of Global Trade down to make it accessible to everyone and give entrepreneurs the powers of industry titans.
