We are reinventing global trade.

Flexport helps more than 10,000 clients and suppliers lead all aspects of their supply chain operations. Started in 2013, we've raised over $1.3B from investors that include SoftBank Vision Fund, Founders Fund, GV, First Round Capital and Y Combinator.

With offices on three continents, our team is as global as our client base and we're excited to continue building a product and service they love. Wherever you are, whichever role you play, you're guaranteed to share your day with committed, encouraging, and resourceful team members.

As we enter our next phase of growth, we're looking for driven and intellectually curious Account Executives to join to help make Flexport the leader in Global Trade! Help us solve real-world problems while streamlining the inefficient industry of global trade.

What you'll do:

  • Proactively consult with clients to understand their supply chains needs and processes;

  • Demonstrate the value of Flexport through remote and in-person meetings

  • Build and manage a pipeline of prospective clients with a diverse set of backgrounds;

  • Lead a squad in partnership with a Global Logistics Manager to drive Client Success and Revenue Generation.

What you'll need:

  • 3 years of experience in a customer-facing sales role at a financial services firm, fast-growing enterprise software company, freight forwarder, or professional services firm with at least 18 months of closing experience;

  • BA/BS degree (preferred);

  • Excellent communication, interpersonal, and organizational skill, with a strong phone presence;

  • An obsession with client happiness. You succeed when they succeed.

  • A burning desire to win clients from competitors. You're a team player, but you know that a little competition is healthy.

  • The intellectual horsepower and curiosity to learn a new way of operating in an old industry.

  • Courage to challenge the status quo when logic and reason require it. See something broken? Fix it.

Where you'll work:

That New York energy is in full effect. Located between Union Square and Flatiron in the heart of Gramercy we take advantage of opportunities to celebrate wins through boat cruises, baseball games and trivia nights.

Investing your time with Flexport means having an immediate impact, all over the world. You're empowered to do what's best for everyone and trusted to make the right decisions when and where you need them. Join our collective of entrepreneurs and improve the world's experience in global trade.

We are an equal opportunity employer and value diversity at our company. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, color, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status, or disability status.
