Now that we’ve had a few days to celebrate as a team and share the news, I am taking a moment to reflect.

Wow. Thank you!

Thank you to our team of Shippos, I am incredibly proud of the dedication of every single employee to embody our culture and work towards one common goal: to bridge the distance between businesses and their customers.

At Shippo, we are deeply committed to creating more value for our customers by giving them the tools that they need to stay competitive and deliver great experiences to their end buyers. We aim to help them grow their business against the backdrop of today’s “through the roof” customer expectations.

Being entrepreneurial is a primary value at Shippo and we’re honored that the USPS has recognized our commitment to delivering better shipping services to the e-commerce ecosystem.

We’re growing fast — and we’re hiring! Thanks again to everyone who made this recognition a possibility.
