Job Description

Shypyard is a fast growing early stage startup backed by top VCs and angels from Silicon Valley. Our goal is to become the backbone of operation for all e-commerce SMBs of the world.

We are looking for smart junior or mid-level backend engineers who are obsessed with delivering great customer experience and who truly care building software that truly solve customer pain points. As a early hire, you have the unique opportunity to build the product from 0 to 1 and have the freedom and ownership to shape the technology and product direction for the company.

We are a hybrid-friendly company and this position can also be fully remote in Taiwan.

✨Mission

Shypyard is building a world where entrepreneurs’ dreams are not limited by their tools.

Our mission is to empower entrepreneurs with the right tools to unlock sustainable growth.

SMBs account for 90%+ of businesses in the world and create over two-thirds of all jobs, making them the lifeblood of the global economy. As former small eCommerce merchants, we started Shypyard because we were frustrated that SMBs can’t afford the planning solutions used by large companies. As a result, these entrepreneurs struggle to accurately forecast and plan for future growth, leading to whipsaw performance that places the business in financial jeopardy. By empowering SMBs with the right tools to grow and thrive, we hope to positively impact the world economy.

Co-Founders’ Background

Dan and Sam co-founded Shypyard in 2021 with the mission to empower entrepreneurs with the right tools to achieve their dreams. While selling on Shopify, they personally experienced the daily operational and business challenges many entrepreneurs face, so they decided to build Shypyard to solve this problem.

They first met at Facebook. Sam grew up in Taiwan, worked at Facebook Marketplace team as a senior engineer, and later created one of the most popular Shopify sizing apps (Kiwi Sizing) with over 14k active merchants. Dan is from Canada and subsequently worked at LinkedIn as a senior product manager, building recommendation products that were responsible for millions of people finding jobs through LinkedIn.

🏗 What are we building?

Today, we create the best forecasting and planning systems for SMB brands to monitor and understand their sales and operations, so they can save time, money and confidently make decisions to hit their financial objectives.

After encountering these problems first-hand in eCommerce, we’ve assembled a team that is bringing their experience from places like Shopify, Facebook, BCG, and Harvard to scale the solution in software. We’ve teamed up with world-class investors, advisors, and industry leaders from Shopify, BigCommerce, Google, and SnapCommerce to build new technology that shifts the paradigm of commerce.

We recently raised our first institutional round backed by top VCs and industry leaders from eCommerce, data science, supply chain, and tech.

Ultimately, our vision is to connect the entire ecosystem of suppliers, logistics companies, distributors and merchants into commerce graph and allow them to communicate across a unified platform. Through the platform data, Shypyard can provide unprecedented insights for both merchants and suppliers on aggregate supply and demand around the world, reducing the bullwhip effect seen throughout times of uncertainty, ie: COVID. Together with our customers, we can transform the global commerce supply chain to become more transparent, trustworthy and less wasteful.
