Here at Shippo, we are the shipping layer of the internet and we consider ourselves to be one of the core building blocks of e-commerce.
Our mission is to make merchants successful through world-class shipping. With our products and solutions, we level the playing field by providing our customers with best-in-class solutions that otherwise wouldn’t be available to them. Through Shippo, e-commerce businesses, marketplaces, platforms, and a variety of logistics infrastructure providers are able to connect to shipping carriers around the world from one API and dashboard. We provide our customers with the most competitive shipping rates, print labels, automated international documents, shipment tracking, facilitate the returns process, and more.
Our workforce, much like the packages we help ship, spans across the globe. This means, through Shippo’s “remote-first” policy, our hires can be based anywhere globally, with the exception of Delaware, Nevada, Ohio, Oregon, Hawaii, New Mexico, and West Virginia. For locations outside of the US and Ireland, the employment contracts are powered by Remote.com (all Shippo perks still apply – including equity!). What is important to emphasize is that you can be successful at Shippo regardless of location.
