Job Description

Our product is composed of a mission critical SaaS web platform, with high traffic inbound/outbound integrations. Our mission is to anticipate problems and proactively alert end-customers so they can efficiently manage exceptions. We achieve this by collecting and matching millions of theoretical and real data from different stakeholders.

Shippeo gives visibility to shippers, carriers and customers by answering the following questions:

  • where is the truck, and is there any foreseeable delays?
  • what has actually been loaded and/or delivered, and is there any discrepancies?
  • what are the levers for improvement for the transport operations?

The technical team is structured in three feature teams:

  • Connect & Go Live: quickly connect shippers & carriers to have the project ‘live’
  • Track to React: make our product as sticky as possible for daily users
  • Analyze & Predict: leverage our data to build data products (extraction, analytics, decision support tools, algorithms)
  • What you will do

    By joining Shippeo as a Product Manager intern, you will be attached to the feature team ‘Track to React’, and working closely with a Product Manager, product designers, software engineers and customer-facing teams.

    Note that this is not a Marketing position.

    The goal of this feature team is to make our product as sticky as possible by acting on two levers:

    • automatically track orders, detect exceptions, alerts our users so they can react
    • provide our users with very reactive interface that makes it easy for them to find answers and perform mandatory tasks

    *Your main responsibility will be to work closely with the developers of our mobile app used by thousands of truck drivers, lead scrum ceremonies and make sure that the developer's activities are clear, prioritized and have no blocking points. *

    Your missions will also include:

    • Talk to our users to understand their needs
    • Produce specifications with the help of our Product Designers & Developers
    • Build the best solution with the engineering team (scrum)
    • Test & manage bugs
    • Ship, monitor and measure usage and iterate

    Preferred Experience

    Your profile:

    • You have an engineering degree or an engineering mindset
    • You are looking for a final year internship (Bac+5)
    • You have a passion for well-designed products
    • You are detail oriented
    • You have a natural ability to make things happen around you
    • You handle projects’ ambiguity, complexity and interdependencies in an organized, prioritized and structured way
    • You have good communication skills: succinct, structured, thorough, and persuasive
    • Fluency in English & French is mandatory (meetings and documentation are mainly in English, some in French)
