Job Description

"We're not in the shipping business; we're in the information business" -Peter Rose, Expeditors Founder

Global supply chain management is what we do, but at the heart of Expeditors you will find professionalism, leadership, and a friendly environment, all of which foster an innovative, customer service-based approach to logistics.

* 17,000 trained professionals
* 300+ locations worldwide
* Fortune 500
* Globally unified systems

Systems Analysts in the EDI (Electronic Data Interchange) Group are responsible for mapping data flows between Expeditors and our clients. This consists of analyzing client specifications describing how they will present data or how they want data presented, understanding how that information will be used in the context of our business and proprietary systems, and distilling it into a mapping document used to create the code that transforms the data. Increasingly, in order for Expeditors to move or clear freight for our clients, we are required to move the data that describes the freight. This places a Systems Analyst in the EDI Group at the very heart of our ability to gain new business and to form lasting bonds with our clients by integrating with their supply chain to provide visibility to inventory in transit.

This is a very fast-paced, exciting position with high visibility. Successful Systems Analysts love to be in the thick of things, have solid analysis skills, great communications skills (both written and verbal), work well in a collaborative design environment, and are able to keep multiple projects under control.

Minimum Qualifications

* Excellent attention to detail required

* Experience in transportation/logistics industry preferred

* Health Plan: Medical, Prescription Drug, Dental and Vision
* Life and Long Term Disability Insurance
* 401(k) Retirement Savings Plan
* Employee Stock Purchase Plan

All your information will be kept confidential according to EEO guidelines.
