Our Mission

To empower everyone along the supply chain by bringing greater transparency, collaboration, and actionable data to the world of shipping and logistics.

Our Values

Here at Shippabo, we believe in the power of empathy and trust, proactivity and resoluteness, continual learning and transparency. These values guide everything we do, internally and for our customers.

Our Team

We’re a team of shippers, logistics experts, and technologists motivated by our massive shared opportunity: To transform the shipping industry. We’re tenacious, driven workers who believe deeply in achieving our mission, while remaining supportive and empathetic coworkers.

We expect nothing less than an actively inclusive work environment. And we’re committed to hiring the best team we can — regardless of gender, sexual orientation, ethnicity, race, education, age, or other personal characteristics.

The Opportunity

Shippabo is on a mission to empower everyone in the supply chain. The role we’re looking to fill is an excellent opportunity for someone passionate about this mission. We’re excited to partner with a product manager who wants to lead a world-class team of engineers, designers, and researchers.

The product you’ll help to build and shape touches users who move billions of dollars worth of goods every year. Your job will be to help these businesses communicate across time zones intuitively, enhance productivity, and hit their cargo delivery goals — all while making the experience more intuitive, fun, and empowering.

Shippabo offers competitive salaries, great benefits, and a high-energy environment with lots of room for personal and professional growth.

On a day-to-day basis as a product manager you will:

  • Manage the product roadmap: capture work from a wide range of inputs, understand and prioritize this work so your team is always working on the most impactful projects
  • Deeply understand the problems that you’re tackling through research and regular interaction with customers
  • Clearly and concisely define and frame the above problems for your team
  • Collaborate with your team in thinking big, to imagining future solutions that solve the above problems
  • Scope these solutions to their smallest coherent state to ship to customers as early as possible
  • Continually evaluate if your solutions have solved the problem through quantitative and qualitative measures, both in betas and after full release
  • Own and maintain the quality of the product areas your team are responsible for, delivering world-class software in every release.
  • Motivate a group of committed, smart people to do the best work of their careers

We would love to hear from you if you:

  • Have experience as a product manager with a proven track record of shipping impactful products
  • Ideally have a strong design background, as it’s essential you’re able to think deeply about product design decisions and have an understanding of how to create intuitive user interfaces
  • Can clearly communicate product decisions and the rationale behind them.
  • Are comfortable making decisions without consensus and can help others make decisions by being persuasive
  • Have deep experience working with both qualitative customer insights, and quantitative customer data to inform decisions. You’ve conducted user research, A/B tests and have worked closely with design researchers and analysts.
  • Are entrepreneurial; you don’t need direction; you're self driven
  • Are able to easily switch between thinking creatively and analytically
  • Ideally have an understanding of the technical architecture of complex web and responsive applications.

We're not accepting unsolicited applications from external recruiter agencies.

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.
