Job description


June 30th 2020: Shipup announces a 6m series A in order to open an office in New York and recruit 45 people in the next 12 months.

At Shipup, our mission is to create a seamless, proactive and branded post-purchase experience for online retailers.

If you are used to buying online, you probably already went through the experience of losing your nerve for an order that encounters multiple incidents. For online retailers, a poor post-purchase experience is a costly nightmare: it drags down customer satisfaction, online reputation, and repeats purchase rate while inflating the volume of complaints at customer support.

Shipup is a SaaS company that tracks in real-time the orders and deliveries of online retailers in order to create a seamless, branded, and reassuring post-purchase experience (proactive and live notifications, customized tracking pages, customer surveys at delivery…). Thanks to Shipup, ordering online is less stressful. Online shoppers are more satisfied, they complain less and buy again more.

The company has been created at the end of 2016 by 3 Cofounders who used to work for Rocket Internet, Casper, and Dashlane.

Shipup works with more than 400 brands in Europe and North America , some of which are very successful DTC and digital-native brands (Purple Carrots, Nation Photo Labs, SSENSE, Peak Design, Na-Kd …) while others are large Enterprise accounts ( Carrefour, Yves Rocher, Morrocan Oil…).

We are now a team of 40 people and growing fast! Our ambition is to become the leader in the eCommerce post-purchase experience.

Job Description

You will help future customers understand the value of our product, ensure a successful implementation, as well as maintaining a long-term relationship to build & scale-up Shipup's reputation in the US. You will leverage what we learn in the past years and test and improve the sales process.

This position is ideal for someone who is looking to work in an international team, take initiative, and is eager to learn.
