About Boxed:

Boxed was launched in our CEO’s garage in 2013 to make shopping for bulk-sized products easy, convenient and fun. We deliver a first-class e-commerce experience for everyday essentials across the country.

About the Team:

The Logistics Engineering team works closely with operations to innovate and execute a mixture of tried and true as well as cutting-edge solutions. We work on services that support warehouse management, local delivery/BOPIS management, and worker (picker, shopper, rider) management.  We make react-native mobile apps for the fulfillment centers to pick and pack orders; concocted raspberry pi driven solutions to scan labels, weigh boxes, and print labels; we’ve even made a robot or forty to traverse the warehouse to carry the goods from pickers to packers. Presently, we’re looking for a Senior Software Engineer (Logistics Engineering) to help us build software for the next step in our evolution of fulfillment.

Currently, all corporate employees are working remotely from home until it is deemed safe to return to our offices by local and state health officials.
