What do we do?

We make it possible for food & beverage brands to buy custom packaging in low quantities – and grow their business. We’re on the verge of hitting $1 million in sales, we work with 150 businesses across North America, and have been growing 36% per month.

We are a platform that connects packaging manufacturers across Canada and the US with small businesses, who often have trouble sourcing branded packaging. We help our clients understand, design, and buy their own customized packaging, and market more intelligently.

Technical challenges

1) We need to build a powerful packaging artwork builder. It will allow clients to upload their logo/other brand elements, and draw from our our library of patterns and fonts, to design and preview their own cups, boxes, etc.
2) We need to scale our visibility very quickly. There are over 100k businesses in North America that are very well suited to our product offering, but don't know about us yet. We need to do this as cheaply and efficiently as possible.
3) Providing more operations help both to our clients and suppliers. We want to build an order processing dashboard to interface with the factories we work with. We also want to empower our clients to understand their inventory levels, usage, and order status. Like FedEx for packaging.

Why join us?

1) We're profitable! This is a live, functioning businesses that is making money and growing fast.
2) We know our customers and suppliers better than anybody --> my first business was a bakery, and I also worked as a mechanical engineer in packaging manufacturing.
3) We’re building a brand that bridges heavy manufacturing with small business; this is not only weird and awesome, but it means there are very few precedents for us. We find that super exciting and challenging.
4) We're a cheery team! We love great design and get to work with fun, beautiful, high-growth businesses (many of whom are bakeries!) We talk about donuts a lot. We're really into Instagram - most of our clients come from there. We're refreshing and different! :)
