Title: Associate Product Manager
Date Posted: 2017-04-09
Location: San Francisco, CA
Description:
Shippo lowers the barriers to shipping for businesses around the world. As free and fast shipping becomes the norm, better access to shipping is a competitive advantage for businesses.

Through Shippo, ecommerce businesses, marketplaces, and platforms are able to connect to multiple shipping carriers around the world from one API and dashboard. Businesses can get shipping rates, print labels, automate international documents, track shipments, and facilitate returns. Internally, we think of Shippo as the building blocks of shipping.

Shippos are a diverse set of individuals. We look for culture and skills add in every new person. Join us to build the foundations of something great, roll up your sleeves and get important work done everyday.

Founded in 2013, we are a proud team of 60 based out of San Francisco. Shippo's investors include Union Square Ventures, SoftTechVC, VersionOne Ventures, FundersClub and others.

RESPONSIBILITIES:

Chances are, pretty much everything you see has been shipped, often multiple times, in order to get there. With the shift to e-commerce parcel shipping is growing rapidly.

Creating a compelling shipping experience for customers is hard. The industry is fragmented with a multitude of different carriers and service options. Individual carrier APIs vary widely and are often difficult to implement. Shippo connects businesses to multiple shipping carriers, letting them compare rates, generate labels, and track shipments.

- Think through product problems from end to end: user experience & design, technical implementation, marketing planning, effects on competitive positioning, marketing planning, etc.

Requirements

- Strong analytical and communication skills--solving a diverse range of problems and being able to communicate clearly about them
- Strong technical understanding in building APIs and experience working directly with engineers and engineering management
- Passionate, collaborative, hands on, communicative and able to thrive in a fast paced environment with a heavy dose of ambiguity
