About Us

At ShopRunner, it’s all about creating a culture that provides choice and challenge. If Chief Technology Officer, Greg Ball, had to pick one quality that he most admires in ShopRunner employees, it would be determination.

In an ecommerce space dominated by Amazon Prime, it takes a lot of grit to challenge the status quo and innovate to develop a more enjoyable online shopping experience for retailers and consumers. But that’s exactly what ShopRunner employees do, and that’s why they love working there.

Perks include a flexible work schedule, generous parental leave program, paid time for community volunteer work and a robust snack station, all of which encourage ShopRunner team members to mold their optimal work environments. Ultimately, though, employees are attracted to ShopRunner’s agile work environment and ample room for upward mobility.

“One of the main reasons I came here was to have a larger impact on a company,” says Corey Sayers, Product Design Lead, who is currently working on a new native app that will facilitate better discovery and shopping experiences. “I feel I have a true seat at the table [at ShopRunner].”

The company prides itself on seven core values:

  • Boldness
  • Inclusion
  • Grit
  • Candor
  • Accountability
  • Spirit
  • Hustle

ShopRunner’s East Coast office is located in one of several buildings that comprise a new commercial and residential campus in Conshohocken, Pa. The open-concept office includes designated desks for employees as well as communal conference spaces. Whiteboard walls covered in code wrap around the interior of almost every room.

One particular board in the entryway stands out: designated the “Wall of Wonder.” Polaroids of each employee are neatly strung along like a colorful DIY clothing line, serves as a tool for new employees to put a face to a name in the office and as a way for team members to get to know one another.

Each week the board features a fun question like “What is your favorite restaurant?” Employees write their answers in below their snapshots.

As ShopRunner continues to bring an increasingly Cali vibe to Conshy, it’s no wonder their staff has jumped by approximately 70 percent in 2017. Cat’s out of the bag: management openly plans to hire “pretty aggressively” quarter over quarter throughout this year.
