  • Lead conference calls with internal operations and external parties to gather requirements, plan integrated testing and deployment
  • Work closely with Solutions Engineers to facilitate comprehensive testing across various functional scenarios
  • Facilitate Systems Integration Testing and User Acceptance Testing across end-users to receive approval prior to go-live
  • Create documentation for end users, technology and support teams that provides business overview and dataflow for new integrations
  • Assist in diagnosis of integration issues in production and aggregate feedback to recommend improvements
  • Share insights and lessons learned about the integrations you complete with your Flexport Ecosystem peers to continuously improve our processes and efficiency

You should have:

  • 5+ years working in solutions consulting or a related field
  • Strong analytical and problem solving skills paired with a persistent, proactive, results-oriented mindset
  • Ability to effectively drive integrations between Flexport and our vendors through to successful completion
  • Work well with cross-functional teams and provide project leadership

  • Ability to manage multiple priorities and projects with organizational and time-management skills
  • Excellent verbal and written communication
  • Bachelor's degree in a technical field or relevant work experience
  • Willingness to travel (up to 25%)
  • A "compliance first" attitude to keep our regulators happy and enthusiastic about Flexport since we operate in a heavily regulated industry.
