Job Description

This tour of duty is for someone who appreciates business as much as a good set of binary code. We provide Wow experiences to our customers, through the service we currently provide. We are searching for a Technology partner, to sit with our management team, and help us design and execute more Wow experiences. This challenge is for someone who will help us architect our current platform that serves thousands of customers, and build services using data, segmentation, and interacting with old-school industry establishments as well as using newly-created start-up API’s. It’s for someone who wants to coach and lead a team of young and learning developers. It’s for someone who wants to help build new business models, in an industry as old as dinosaurs.

Our industry is famous for ‘it’s always done this way’. We are not looking to change that. We believe we can leverage the existing capabilities of the industry, add a new layer of technology and business, and create an entire new business while continuing to create value to our existing and new customers.

What We're Building

71lbs created a "set-and-forget" system that allows SMBs to automatically collect on their FedEx & UPS late shipment refunds.

Did you know every FedEx & UPS shipment comes with a money-back-guarantee? If your overnight or ground shipment is late, even by 60 seconds, you have the right to 100% of your money back. Most companies don't file their late shipment claims. More than $2 billion are left unclaimed every year.
