Shipit is a leading SaaS company dedicated to simplifying the daily shipping process. Every day, thousands of our customers, ranging from businesses and e-commerce platforms to individuals, trust us with their shipments. We manage hundreds of thousands of items annually, including parcels, letters, and pallets. With Shipit, you have the flexibility to choose your workplace. Our team spans from Åland to Kuopio and many places in between.

Our Team Culture and Who We're Looking For

Our product development team at Shipit is both autonomous and close-knit. We aim to foster a work environment where everyone finds joy in their tasks. While each member is responsible for their own tasks, we make significant decisions as a group. We operate on trust, mutual help, respect, and continuous learning. We pride ourselves on being a relaxed and grounded group. Our commitment is to maintain transparency and continuously steer our company in this direction. We expect our new teammate to be proactive and get things done the right way.

Role Overview

Your primary role will involve backend development, focusing on integrating third-party services, especially from logistics giants like Posti, Matkahuolto, DB Schenker, Postnord, GLS, FedEx, Omniva, DPD, UPS among others. Your contributions will touch various facets of our service, from designing the application architecture to crafting Shipit's API and refining our administrative systems, ensuring an efficient experience for our customers, customer support and operational teams.

Experience in these areas would be ideal, especially if you've modernized legacy systems. Moreover, a knack for drafting clear and concise documentation to simplify our customer interactions would be greatly valued. Familiarity with software design principles, such as MVC, Managers, and Services, is crucial. However, you should also be comfortable diving into intricate architectural concepts like Domain Driven Development. As we pivot towards modernizing and scaling our system for the future, it's essential you can write robust tests that pinpoint issues effectively, rather than just confirming code functionality under optimal conditions.

That said, we recognize the challenge in finding candidates that tick every box. Our hiring process focuses on how your unique skills enhance our team, your learning enthusiasm, what drives you, and how seamlessly you'd mesh with our team dynamics.


Our current tech stack includes PHP 8.1, Laravel 10, MySQL 8, and Redis on the backend. On the frontend, we employ React, Livewire 2 (transitioning to Livewire 3), Tailwind CSS, Alpine.js, JavaScript (shifting to TypeScript), and Bun. While we're always open to enhancing our stack and productivity, we have a preference for tried-and-true solutions. We prioritize reliability and proven effectiveness over simply adopting the latest trends.
