FinOps Associate

Who we are:

Have you ever stopped to wonder how your computer, clothes, furniture or household goods made their way to your doorstep? Most likely, almost everything you own arrived here in a container on a container ship.  It is a massive industry that we all rely on but don’t think about much because it’s been done the same way for decades without much change or innovation.

NYSHEX is a well-funded Series A startup, developing a brand-new concept that will transform and enable an industry plagued with inefficiency, volatility, and $23b of economic waste annually. The NYSHEX team is passionate about collaborating with the world’s leading ocean carriers, shippers and forwarders to bring technology and innovation to this industry we love, and we hope that you’ll be part of building this new digital foundation that will have lasting effects for years to come.

Join our team as a Finops Associate!

As a Finops Associate, you will have the opportunity to join our team at a very early stage. You will play the lead role in designing and standardizing the operational process of settling transactions via our Exchange platform.  You will be a critical addition to our team in order to help scale the operational processes as we continue to grow rapidly.  You will also work closely with the finance team to ensure that financial flows are seamlessly integrated with the operational processes.  

At NYSHEX, you’ll have the opportunity to work closely with a talented group of engineers, product managers, and industry leaders.  Our team works hard and moves fast since we’re all hungry to take on the challenge of transforming an institutionalized industry.

  • Own the process of contract settlement to ensure all parties are fulfilling their contract commitments
  • Work directly with the finance team to review and ensure correct allocation of payments and liquidated damages

  • Partner with our ocean carriers to continually optimize our dispute resolution process
  • Design and optimize processes with the product team in order to build solutions as we scale
  • Communicate findings through presentations, reports, and workshops

You have:

  • 1-3 years of work experience
  • Experience in ocean containerized shipping preferred but not required
  • A strong focus on process optimization
  • A passion for problem solving and accepting new challenges
  • The desire to work in a rapid growth environment
  • The ability to distill complex problems into simple, clean solutions
  • Strong written and verbal communication skills
  • Good organizational skills to support the team
  • Proficient with MS Office

What you have to look forward to:

Our culture promotes a dynamic, exciting, and challenging work environment with opportunities for learning and growth. Our team is passionate about building great tech and besides being great at their jobs, are also classical musicians, surfers, gamers, and foodies.
