An Insider's view of Flexport

What’s the vibe like in the office?

The office vibe is incredibly unique at Flexport. The company actually encourages you to be yourself without any fear of being judged; a quality that many companies claim to foster in their offices but fail to genuinely establish.

What projects are you most excited about?

Since we are a fast growing company in the trillion dollar global logistics industry there are always opportunities to work on new projects. I'm personally working on some new sales tactics for our air freight business. I've been able to be heavily involved, even after only being at Flexport for short time.
