Worried about not having any freight forwarding experience?

Dont be! Many of us were once in your shoes. 

Global trade is an infinitely fascinating but highly complex industry, where purchasing decisions are made every day rather than on an annually recurring basis. Dont worry, you wont need to become the worlds expert on ocean freight (we already hired that guy). Well look to you to apply your deep understanding of how experiences can help a brand stick & stand out in a complex - & sometimes, chaotic - industry.

We know this industry is complex. Thats why we invest in education starting day one with Flexport Academy, a one week intensive onboarding program designed specifically to set every new Flexport employee up for success. 

Its incredibly important for us to bring people from diverse backgrounds & experiences together with our industry veterans to help move this industry forward. Flexport is on a mission to make global trade easier for everyone because we believe it can help connect the world & break down economic barriers.

At Flexport, our ability to fulfill our mission of making global trade easy for everyone relies on having a diverse, dedicated & engaged workforce. That is why Flexport is committed to creating & nurturing an environment where anyone can be their authentic self. All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment regardless of race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age, physical & mental disability, health status, marital & family status, sexual orientation, gender identity & expression, military & veteran status, & any other characteristic protected by applicable law.
