Build the programs to help Flexport grow

Flexport is building the first modern logistics platform to make global trade easier for everyone. We are solving complex problems on a global scale, and disrupting a multi-trillion dollar industry that has remained stubbornly unchanged.

The opportunity:

The frontend infrastructure team provides product teams with the tools and capabilities to efficiently build great user experiences. Our work impacts every product team at Flexport. We shape the architecture of the frontend across the company. We make platform-wide changes and upgrade the entire codebase along the way.

Some of the things we do:

  • Create the infrastructure so teams can efficiently build front end applications without needing to keep up with the ever-evolving javascript ecosystem
  • Manage a federated GraphQL gateway service
  • Make it easy to create new frontend applications at Flexport
  • Own front end best practices and enforce them with static analysis and ESlint rules
  • Provide teams with visibility into their test coverage and frontend performance

You will:

  • Lead projects to evolve our frontend infrastructure and architecture (GraphQL federation, Next.js, frontend platform services)
  • Enhance our backend for frontend systems
  • Implement tooling and drive initiatives to ensure best practices across teams as well as maximize developer productivity and developer experience

You should have:

  • Experience designing and leading architectural projects
  • Experience building large, performant javascript apps
  • Deep knowledge of the modern javascript ecosystem (different frameworks and tools and their tradeoffs)
  • Strength in cross-functional collaboration with design, product, and business
  • 8+ years of engineering experience

What you’ve worked with ideally:

  • React
  • Next.js
  • Flow/Typescript
  • Frontend test frameworks
  • Web performance (time-to-interactive, dependencies, wasted renders)
  • Frontend build/deployment process (Webpack, Babel)
  • GraphQL/Relay/Apollo
