- Paul Graham
We are backed by some of the world's best technology investors, and have the team required to take this company all the way to IPO and beyond. Our founder created the world's largest business intelligence service for the import-export industry, while our CTO was the co-founder of Yammer ($1.2B exit to Microsoft).
We are still putting together our founding engineering team, so now is the time to join us to participate meaningfully in the upside we'll be building over the next 5-10 years together. If you are looking for an opportunity to have a real impact on the world, there is simply no better opportunity than in greasing the wheels of global commerce at Flexport.
