Ready to tackle global challenges that impact business, society, and the environment? Come join us.

As an Air Pricing Associate, you will be a foundational member of the team, learning all aspects of the Air trade, mastering Flexport’s advanced technology systems, and working on the front-lines to ensure Account Management Teams - and by extension, Flexport customers - have the right solutions and the right prices so that supply chains run smoothly. You will be an expert in coordinating and executing the end-to-end shipment lifecycle: procurement, solution design, rate setting, database management, financial controlling, and implementation for the geography’s imports and exports.

  • Triage incoming requests and find an end-to-end resolution where possible or provide direction to the appropriate team for resolution

  • Constantly monitor group emails, Slacks, and offer support wherever possible

Drive and support initiatives to promote growth and profitability for the region

  • Ensure high integrity and accuracy of all rates stored in internal database; record all rates and rate updates timely

  • Proactively follow-up on lost pricing requests and new opportunities

You should have:

  • BA/BS and 1-3 year(s) of related work experience
