Tradeshift - San Francisco, CA4.0

Full-timeEstimated: $90,000 - $120,000 a year
Tradeshift is the business commerce company: Reimagine procurement and payables. Get your supply chain connected to the future with digital marketplaces, payments, and apps.

Tradeshift is disrupting the enterprise software space and in a big way. B2B has entered the Platform era and we are leading the charge! Tradeshift connects companies of all sizes and provides them with the platform, network and tools needed to develop apps, the ability to communicate in real-time, and create value from old processes like invoicing, payments and workflow. Tradeshift is redefining an enterprise space that has seen little change in many years. We recognize that business is messy and business is social. Understanding these two facts drives the development of Tradeshift - a platform for all your business interactions.

Change can be hard. Apps make it easy: The procure-to-pay “suite” is like Santa Claus: we all want to believe, but our illusions are eventually shattered. Suites are never as comprehensive as they promise. They’re expensive, disconnected, slow to change, and you have to use what they offer, or source a new application (that’s nearly impossible to integrate). Apps unify all suppliers, users’ experiences, data, your processes, and back-end integrations. They’re the fast, flexible way to expand capabilities and how you use Tradeshift Buy, Pay.

Our App Platform Team:
There's no single answer for a company aiming to consolidate and digitize their supply chain. Individual applications cover different aspects, such as procurement, supplier risk, sustainability, finance, etc. With Tradeshift, we have created a platform for all your suppliers, all in one place. Different applications support different business needs while running on a strong integrated core that enables supplier connectivity and collaboration between and inside of companies, all in real time.

Best of all, the platform can leverage what is unique about a business to provide a significant and sustainable competitive advantage.
