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.

About Whitebox

Whitebox's mission is to connect manufacturers to their end customers and grow their ecommerce business. However, the dev teams mission is to automate every possible part of the process. A few examples:Instead of having our support staff contact Amazon every time Amazon fails to receive the correct amount of inventory from us, the system automatically submits a reimbursement claim. When a client adds and deletes users to their team, our email marketing list is kept in sync so we're never emailing users who were removed. We manage about 45 Shopify stores. Instead of logging into every store to pull some report that's not in the API, we use Puppeteer to log into every store for us. With a single push of a button we can update thousands of listings on multiple online marketplaces.
