About the Product Team
We are on a mission to create the best products and experiences for a wide range of users from small merchants to large enterprises, from people shipping from their garage to large networks of international warehouses, from business-savvy entrepreneurs to tech-savvy engineers. We approach that mission with a diverse, growing, and vibrant team mixing Product Managers and Designers of all backgrounds. We are dedicated to improving our craft and creating success for our customers. Our goals are ambitious, our approach is thoughtful and empathetic, and we bias toward action.
About the Role

As a Product Manager for ShipStation or ShipEngine, you will drive product initiatives from inception to execution. You will work closely with a Director of Product Management who will rely on you as well as support you as you grow in skill and responsibility. First and foremost, you will be responsible for understanding our users and their daily work. Building on deep empathy, you will collaborate closely with designers, engineers, analysts, data scientists, and other cross-functional team members to propose, ship, and refine delightful products.
We are looking for product managers who bring exceptional creative and analytical skills. You bring a customer-centric approach to your work, and a desire to build your skills as a product manager.
