Company Culture

Next time you order something online, think about all of the millions of things that have to happen, and go perfectly as planned to get that package to you in the next 24 hours. What seems simple at first, is quite complex, with tons of moving parts, both machine and human. At Whitebox, your curiosity is rewarded by unveiling the inner workings behind ecommerce.

Join a fun, fast paced team of ecommerce experts. Whitebox has spent years building and refining ecommerce automation technology that is changing how ecommerce works. At Whitebox, you’ll automate the millions of steps that take place behind the scenes, from an order being placed online to the time it shows up on the customer’s doorstep.

This complex ecosystem fosters a growing need for data analytics, user interfaces, database design, API connections and server infrastructure. After getting a VC funded A round, Whitebox is proving itself with hyper growth, and we need talented engineers, with an interest in complex problem solving, to take us to the next phase of design and development.

Startup & Growth

I can’t stress enough through text how much growth potential there is for a developer at Whitebox. Our team has been growing very fast, but we have kept a small number of developers. Joining Whitebox at this early stage means you’ll be a part of making key technology decisions, freedom to ask why and help understand the purpose.

Whitebox's mission is to connect manufacturers to their end customers and grow their ecommerce business. However, the dev team's mission is to automate every possible part of the process.

We work on very interesting problems every day. Because we have 3 physical 100k+ sqft warehouses that run our software, we get to physically touch the software in a way that in most companies is not possible. When we develop products, they become very impactful, with fast feedback loops and real world application.

Programming includes handheld devices, scanners, box machines, mobile work stations, chromebooks, scales, raspberry pi's and more.
