As the Senior Product Manager of the FLEXE shipper platform, you will utilize your technical expertise and product sense to create the industry’s first turn-key logistics platform. In this role, you will be spear-heading user research to uncover customer pain-points and strategic business opportunities. On top of this, you will lead a team of engineers and partner with our operations and commercial teams to deliver a complex roadmap of both product and process solutions.  Your work will be a crucial part of unlocking shipper growth and top-line revenue. 

Some of the things you'll do include:

    • Develop a product vision, strategy and roadmap for the FLEXE shipper platform
    • Define the platform team’s fitness function using meaningful and innovative methods for measuring success
    • Partner closely with engineering, marketing, sales, and operations to execute your product vision

    • Proven experience transforming multiple solutions into a cohesive platform
