The Company Shipamax is building Stripe for back office automation in logistics organisations.

When goods are physically moved around the world, there can be up to 20 companies involved in the transaction. This is a complex and messy process, where different systems & teams have to collaborate to get the job done - creating a mountain of manual work.

Shipamax extracts data from logistics documents, and turns it into a standardised, machine-readable format. This saves companies hours of manual data entry, improves accuracy and frees up teams to focus on skilled, value-add activities.

Today, we provide plug & play automation to some of the world's largest logistics companies who are constrained by manual admin. We're already processing 30 million emails and attachments annually, but we're just getting started - our vision is to enable seamless orchestration of global trade.

We have regular in-person and remote team events.

We believe that developing team members is important to help everyone grow and have a career progression framework with bi-yearly reviews.

Values We're a highly ambitious team of ~34 mainly based in London. We want to be renowned for our achievement and we don't shy away from the hard work that is required to get there. We want to enjoy that journey, so look for friendly, inclusive folks that will help each other out, cheer on each other's 'wins', help pick you up when things aren't as rosy and have some fun on the way.

Think and act like one team

The road to success can often be long and tough, but we want to enjoy the journey. We're here to achieve something incredibly ambitious. Having everyone moving together, in the same direction, will enable us to do our best work and achieve our goals faster. Consistent, high impact delivery

To be a market leading business that stands the test of time, we must consistently prove our worth to our customers. Everyone delivering consistently and focusing on the right tasks keeps us on track. Working at Shipamax is a team sport. Start small to go big

Starting small means proving we can execute effectively on a small scale before doubling down on initiatives that have shown evidence of success. This keeps us focused on 'what good looks like'. A partner, not just a vendor

We are not a one-off purchase - we are a partner who will be there for the next 100 years. Customers buying Shipamax are on a journey. We utilise our experience to support their organisational change and go the extra mile to make these projects successful.
