Shippypro · Senior Full Stack Developer (Frontend oriented)

About us

We are a SaaS company born in Florence, Italy in 2016 with the mission of simplifying the way people ship, track and return their e-commerce orders by creating a technological layer capable of handling the complexity of Shipping & Logistics.

We are an international scale-up where people from different countries, cultures and languages work together every day to deliver innovation.

This is reflected in every product we build but also in the attention and care for the people that are working in our company.

We are currently scaling our business leveraging our technology, our team and our international culture. We are 60+ people in Europe and we have recently raised Series A funding from US investors, fueling our objectives. It is now time to grow even more and increase our talented tech team with engineers that want to contribute to the development of our products.

Who are we looking for

We are looking for a Senior Fullstack Developer who will work across the frontend (React, Typescript) and backend (currently PHP) parts of our application. We’re looking for a talent that will join our pre-shipping team, responsible for the user experience from the moment of the signup until the generation of a label. Due to the nature of the team, the person we are looking for is weighted more strongly towards frontend, rather than backend, but you will have the opportunity to work on both sides of the project.

What we can offer:

Remote working options. We are happy to welcome every new member into our state-of-the-art (literally!) office in Florence, however we are also a modern and agile company, and are open to full or partial remote working where possible

No clocking in/out. We don’t believe in micromanaging and our working relationships are based on mutual trust, that’s why we don’t require our team to clock in and out of work. Of course, this trust relationship works both ways!

Work alongside an ambitious and supportive team. We are growing fast and no two days look the same at ShippyPro, but one thing never changes: your colleagues are always there to support you and to bounce off ideas!

Growth and learning opportunities. We believe that in order to grow as a company, our team also needs to continue learning and developing. Did you know that we have a growing Library in our office and you can borrow as many books as you like?

Meal pearks *: Whether you are working from home, from the office or from wherever you want, you can enjoy your meal voucher everyday. Getting hungry?

Free coffee policy. We are an international team, but our HQ is in Italy, hence we do take coffee breaks very seriously. Hot drinks are on us, and occasionally, Aperitivo too!

No dress code. That’s right, no formal attire is required when working in our HQ

*only for Italian contract

We are a people-centric organization with one mission: “Make People Work Better”.
