Operating at the intersection of logistics and tech has allowed Flexport to develop a unique value proposition that customers all over the globe love, resulting in exponential growth over the last 10 years. As part of our mission to make global trade easy for everyone, we are continuing to grow our implementation organization.

We are seeking an experienced Implementation Specialist with experience in client-facing roles supporting end to end supply chain solutions and/or fulfillment. You'll be part of a high-performing implementation team and in the driver's seat onboarding our biggest SMB, MM and ENT fulfillment clients into the Flexport network.

You will play a leading role in solving any customizations that a client might need along the way. Examples of activities you might be dealing with on a normal day range from leading a demo of our portal, creating and project managing a customized implementation strategy (internally and externally), or collaborating internally to support anything our clients need to drive an outstanding onboarding experience.

  • Level setting with your client when certain desires are not reasonably possible
  • Comfortable playing into a wide range of client services scope — most of the time you’ll feel like an implementation specialist but there are times that you’ll feel like an account manager, account executive or customer support representative, and this does not stress you out   
  • Leading the customer onboarding process by leveraging internal resources and teams, and holding all parties accountable

You should have:  

  • 3-5 years’ experience in a client service capacity within fulfillment, supply chain, operations, or related field

An Insider's view of Flexport

What’s the vibe like in the office?

During pre-COVID times, the SF office was designed as a hub of innovation. You can feel the creativity from the openness of the space, the dry-erase walls, the sound of coffee in the morning, and the waves of silence broken by laughter and understanding. The office made me want to wake up every day and go to work.
