About Shyp

Shyp is using a combination of technology, logistics, and outstanding customer service to make it easy for people and businesses to send things to each other. Our award-winning app delivers a thoughtful consumer experience, while our fleet of couriers and warehouse technicians form the backbone for our high-paced package processing pipeline. The end result is an experience that the New York Times has called “magical.”

We’re taking Shyp to the next level as we expand our geographic footprint and suite of product offerings.

The Role

Packing Experts are the artisans of Shyp. When our customers’ items arrive at our warehouse, Shyp Packing Experts transform them into securely and beautifully packaged shipments. They then process these carefully created packages with our carrier partners (UPS, FedEx, USPS) for their journeys across the US and world.

NOTE: because Packing Experts handle our customers’ personal items, they must pass a background check as part of the application process.

What is Shyp?

Shyp is an on-demand shipping service that allows people to send items to people they care about by simply taking a picture with the Shyp mobile app.

Once they send the photo, a pick-up request is sent and within minutes a Shyp Hero arrives to collect the item and bring it to our warehouse. At the warehouse, a Shyp Packing Expert securely packages the item for its journey.

This is not a typical warehouse role. As a Shyp Packing Expert, you'll be instrumental in setting the foundation for the company's national and global expansion. To see more about our fast-growing start up, check out www.shyp.com
