The Role

Craftsmanship is very important to us at Shyp. We value close attention to detail and code that can be easily improved upon and maintained by others. We also pride ourselves on a strong level of ownership throughout our products. Engineers in this role work closely with both designers and platform engineers and must understand their perspectives, as well as be able to bring new ideas to the table.

We're still a small team — the opportunity to take on a big role and have huge impact is very real. Our culture is collaborative, focused, and fast-paced.

The truth on the ground is that progress has come from relentless passion, exceptional skill, and unwavering thoughtfulness about the customer experience. If you're the best at what you do and our mission resonates with you, we'd love to have you join us.
