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.

As the Staff Product Manager, Shippo App, you will own and execute against a product strategy that delivers on this promise.

You will support and set strategy for the value-added services that empower merchants and help Shippo meet its aggressive goals, by launching and positioning exciting new features that drive meaningful merchant value and growth for Shippo.

We are looking for a strategic problem-solver whose analytical skills and user-focused approach will make all the difference in delivering intuitive, powerful products and features.
