Engineering at Shippabo
Engineering team and processes

Shippabo is a team of well rounded engineers. We value making an impact and engineers are involved in much of the product development, as such our engineers understand the feature they are working on from beginning to end.

The team's typical development cycle follows an agile biweekly sprint. Planning initiates a sprint with group consensus for storypoint estimations and assignments. Developers are given high autonomy and transparency, taking on a leadership role for their assignment (with support from the team as desired or needed!). Following our biweekly sprint, we have a retrospective to review and share individual and team mindsets, with the aim to improve our process continuously.

We use Github to collaborate via pull requests, code reviews, and continuous integration checks. Our aim is to allow engineers to develop in a smooth and effortless CI/CD process

Technical Challenges

Logistics is a complex and has many high touch use cases. In the effort to simplify and automate as much of the shipping process as possible our codebase becomes increasingly complex.

Fortunately, the Shippabo team excels at adapting to incoming challenges while maintaining simplicity and granularity. To support our endeavor, we strive to maintain decoupled business concerns, clear layers of separation following the clean architecture principles, and adopted tools to help build more powerful software (including GraphQL, clean architecture, typescript).

Projects you might work on
  • You would work on building and simplifying our server interface in graphQL, creating or updating react components to consume the new interface with Apollo.

  • You will be improving the platform performance and user experience of our clients and support team, in terms of response time, ease of use and simplicity, and operational functionality.
