Company snapshot

Shipwire is a Global E-Fulfillment powerhouse.  Our platform and services put more than 1,000 emerging brands and web retailers on a level playing field with Fortune 100 retailers. We give David a rocket launcher to contend with the Goliaths of internet retailing. On-demand fulfillment centers, shipping tools, Web services, innovative developer tools and integration with today's top e-commerce platforms keep us at the forefront of Cloud Logistics.  And we are rapidly creating apps that make it simple to control the world's most powerful logistics network from any device, anywhere.    

We're looking for the right fit 

As a Full Stack Engineer you’ll have no shortage of interesting and challenging projects.  Primarily you'll be responsible for building out our next generation of client applications and working on visionary projects within our growing development team.

You’ll do really well here if you..

  • Want to work in a company where your code will get into production every week and be used by millions of people all over the world.
  • Have a high comfort level in LAMP environments
  • Have experience coding clean and well documented object oriented PHP and Javascript 
  • Employ creative problem solving skills
  • Enjoy interesting challenges
  • Have a thirst for knowledge  

Are we the right fit for you?           

Career progression:  Excellent performers are quickly recognized and afforded opportunities to move up as soon as it is feasible to do so.  Engineers impact the company with code initially, but there is greater cross-functional impact as your seniority grows.
Professional growth:  Learning opportunities abound. We promote continual growth in our engineers by giving educational stipends and opportunities to attend tech conferences, meetups, and workshops.  We have a wide range of technologies in our tech stack and do not restrict passionate engineers from learning areas outside of their core competencies.
Personal growth:   We believe that independent interests of employees can be brought to the workplace and shared with those that we spend our work days with.  

Vibrant and supportive culture:   We cater free lunches, mingle with each other on “Beer and Rock Band” Fridays, have an active runners club and enjoy a constant flow of treats brought in by foodies in the company.   We are responsive to one another, flexible with each other, and open to each other's suggestions.  Our executive management all have open door (and open idea) policies and are willing to drop everything to listen and help our engineers.

Sharp co-workers:   Our Engineering team has been winning dev awards together for years.   We have alums from Stanford, MIT, CalTech, UC Berkeley, UCLA, and Cal Poly.        

Agility and versatility are important: Most of our software is written in clean and simple PHP and JavaScript.  We also use tools and technologies such as gearman, php-fpm, redis, backbone.js,  Elasticsearch, Puppet and Jenkins CI. We believe in using the best tool for the job while maintaining a slight bias toward the tools the team knows the best.  Agile development methodology has many different meanings but to us it is doing what works best for the customer. Our engineers don’t just translate ideas into realities; they work with our product teams to generate ideas. We use Scrum for collaboration and release super-awesome-game-changing features to our clients. We’re pragmatic. We have strong opinions but we are never afraid to try to new things.

Shipping (it's in our dna): Shipping is at the forefront of our engineering practice. We rely on continuous integration and Test Driven Development (TDD) to ensure our product is always able to ship.

Compensation:  In addition to very competitive salaries we offer a Fortune 100 class 401K plan, along with comprehensive medical, dental, and vision insurance coverage.   We can be very competitive with  the options of startups and RSUs of larger businesses.  Finally we have a generous vacation policy so you can recharge and take time off when you need it. 

Our award winning products start and stop with our people...

We set our teams up for success to deliver something that is changing the way entrepreneurs run their small and medium sized businesses.  We recognize and reward ingenious work. We all have a voice that is heard throughout the company to communicate any challenges we face. We always make time for fun.
