What do we do?

Pakible started in early 2015 as part of Y Combinator’s winter batch, going on to raise a $1.5M seed immediately after. We discovered the most slept-on market in the world, a $500B market just domestically: Product packaging.

Technical challenges

1) Scale the collection & aggregation of quote data from hundreds of suppliers around the world, none of which have API's.

2) Pricing algorithms to analyze and predict decade-old pricing matrices

3) Implementing client dashboards and secure transactions methods

4) Automation scripts to power multi-million dollar print machines across the US

Why join us?

1) We discovered the most slept-on market in the world, a $500B market just domestically: Product packaging.

2) 1500+ companies including Samsung, Reddit, Philz Coffee, and the Golden State Warriors already use Pakible. The products you build here will power them and thousands of companies small and large.

3) Grew sales every month for past 6 months without any outbound sales or ad spend.
