An Insider's view of Shippabo

What are some social events your company does?

Aside from dinners and happy hours, one of my favorite events was a tour of Long Beach port. It was a great way to give more meaning to the work that we do in an educational, but also fun way!

Irene

Sales Development Representative Manager

What kinds of technical challenges do you and your team face?

At Shippabo, the tech team is constantly facing changing requirements and delivering new product features while maintaining legacy code. This sounds like a startup right? There is rarely a day when I am not learning something new or applying these new pattern to our code base. Being on the edge of tech and creating a product is what make my day!

Fernando

Software Engineer

What makes someone successful on your team?

Be able to thrive in uncertainty and have a “I don’t know, but I’ll find out” attitude. International logistics is complex, to say the least. Don’t be afraid of not knowing something. Be determined to figure it out.

Steven

Product Marketer

What is your vision for the company?

As consumers, it’s often easy to forget the complexity of the global supply chains used to make the goods that we enjoy in our everyday life. Part of the intellectual enjoyment of working at Shippabo is getting immersed in those complexities as we help make our clients lives easier as they participate in the global economy.

Mike

Product Manager

What’s the vibe like in the office?

I would describe the office as fun and collaborative. Shippabo’s communal, no offices feel allows for great team collaboration and an even playing field for all. We all are very much like family here—even my coworkers puppies that come to visit. You will build some great relationships here, making work fun.
