We're backed by $2.5 million from Y Combinator, Cherubic Ventures, AME Cloud and Founders Fund.

Today, Shipamax serves some of the largest players in the bulk shipping industry and is processing 20 million emails & attachments annually. We're currently expanding into our second vertical - the Freight Forwarding market - where we're seeing customers jump at the prospect of applying our technology to automate data entry.

As a Mid or Senior Full-stack Engineer you'll be:

* Developing and improving new products and features
* Ensuring the Shipamax website is lightning fast
* Building beautiful user experiences
* Helping estimate, plan and execute on projects, features, and integrations
* Building and extending our public customer API
* Championing code quality, new technologies, and architectural design within the company
* Technologies we use: React, Redux, CSS, Typescript, Node JS some Python

We have terabytes of data that is processed in a fraction of a second by our backend and served up to our customers around the globe to help them make key business decisions. There are two key things that make this a challenging role:

1. Building a web application that can help users quickly access this data and update it on the fly is challenging and core to our competitive advantage. Users may access Shipamax via desktop or mobile - so we have to be pretty flexible.

2. The data we process and our users workflows can be pretty complex - we have to translate this into a simple, easy to use experience.

You’d be working with a low-ego team of engineers coming from Google, NetApp, AXA among others as well as our team of data scientists.

Experience in logistics not necessary :)
