Women Impact Tech

Group Product Manager, Client Platform

    Bellevue, WA, San Francisco, CA

Full Time

The opportunity:

We are looking for a seasoned product management leader to create world-class customer experiences that progress the evolution of global trade. With a customer-first mindset and deep empathy for customer needs, you will manage a team of product managers and work alongside a team of highly-skilled engineers, designers, data scientists and freight forwarding experts in building the interface between our customers and the movement of their goods. The products you build will empower our customers to optimize their end-to-end supply chains and run more successful businesses.

You’ll be responsible for leading the development of a number of Flexport’s flagship client applications that are of strategic importance to the company’s future growth, including our Order Management and Shipment Visibility products.

  • Order Management enables our clients to collaborate with their trade partners on our platform and manage their supply chain on a purchase order and product level. Order Management elevates the Flexport experience for our clients since they can now manage their supply chain based on business constructs that matter to them, versus having to think about pallets and containers. Read more on our website
  • Shipment Visibility provides our clients with a “single pane of glass” control tower experience for managing their entire supply chain through the Flexport platform. Shipment Visibility provides our clients with track & trace insights into any shipment, whether the freight is moved by Flexport or any other logistics provider. Read more on our website

You’ll have the opportunity to scale these products, shape the long-term strategy and roadmap, and work towards a global trade management experience unlike anything the market has seen before. You’ll lead a team of ambitious and talented product managers and will be a frequent presenter at all-hands / executive meetings to bring everyone along in this growth journey. You’ll have the opportunity to leverage capabilities and products within the Flexport ecosystem to create bundled solutions and business models to drive further market differentiation.

You will:

  • Drive the 3-5 year product vision and strategy for Order Management & Shipment Visibility products and paint a clear path on how we will get there.
  • Realize this vision through leading and inspiring your team of product managers and a cross-functional team of designers, engineers, data scientists, and operations specialists.
  • Work closely with our business, operations, and technology teams to develop a roadmap to address the needs of our users.

  • Become a domain expert: Gain a deep understanding of relevant technology & industry trends and competitive dynamics, and form a perspective on how Flexport fits into it all.
  • Make data driven decisions and implement metrics to manage your team’s progress and impact.

You should have:
