  Company Description

Have you ever worked for a company that actually wanted you to bring your whole self to work every single day?
About Tradeshift
Tradeshift is a unicorn in the fintech industry. We are disrupting a typically stagnant environment by connecting companies of all sizes & providing them with the platform & network needed to create value from old processes like procurement, invoicing, payments, & workflow. We recognize that business is both messy & social - two revelations that have driven the development of Tradeshift, a platform for all your business interactions.
The Platform Services team is dedicated to building the foundational products that support all the other front-line business applications that Tradeshift delivers. The role therefore combines aspects of customer-facing software but also elements of technical platform product management too. A team of 7 Product Managers currently work across 16 Scrum teams who deliver different aspects of these foundational products.
