About Paack 📦

Paack is an avant-garde technology start-up in the logistics sector. It was founded in 2015, and since then, the company has experienced strong global growth and it currently operates in 70 cities across different countries such as Spain, the UK, France, and Portugal. Our success is backed by renowned European investors.

We believe the future of e-commerce deliveries is a customer-controlled system that schedules the distribution according to clients’ preferences. Additionally, our approach blends the last mile delivery experience with an environmental-friendly service. Paack wants to establish a combination of the two as the new market standard. Hence, we ensure clients receive their parcels in a time that suits them while contributing to sustainability.

Our product ecosystem was designed in-house allowing both technology and operationality to integrate perfectly, delivering parcels more efficiently. This results in unprecedented outcomes, offering our retail clients a competitive advantage whilst reducing the impact of their carbon footprint. Due to previously mentioned reasons, some of the best retailers (Amazon, Inditex Group (Zara), H&M, El Corte Inglés, etc) have chosen Paack as their exclusive partner.

Our team of Paackers is multicultural, multilingual, and highly qualified. We enjoy the challenges of scaling a global technology and logistics business, facing them with ambition.

In accordance with our corporate values: We CareWe ThriveWe Innovate, Paack is looking for inspiring people, people who love to grow exceeding expectations, and challenge the status quo.

Paack is proud to be an equal opportunity workplace, committed to promoting a diverse and inclusive workplace.

Our team 🤲

Paack is proud to be an equal opportunity workplace, committed to promoting a diverse and inclusive workplace.

We are multicultural, multilingual, highly qualified, entrepreneurial, and, inherently, we like to work hard. We enjoy all the challenges of scaling a global technology and logistics business, and we face them with ambition.

The engineering team has a flat management structure. The teams are organized by-products. Technical decisions are made as a team taking in the feedback and thought process of the engineers. Team members are free to move between different teams based on the feedback of their team members and the status of their project.

We work from different locations across the globe in different time zones. We follow agile practices like sprint planning, daily standup, and retrospectives through Slack and perform pair programming sessions and weekly engineering talks.

Development Practices 🤖

We automate everything from development, deployment, and infrastructure management. We have established a culture of DevOps that helps teams collaborate better and deliver reliable software faster. However, this stays an evergreen challenge; so there is room for improvement.

About the job 👩‍💻👩‍💻

We are seeking technical writers who will support the build of a playbook, internally defined as an integrations guide, as we integrate with retailers. We are also looking for someone who is capable of driving our Technical Team to a new standard of specifications - where diagrams are worth 1000 words - coming up with clear, concise, accurate and up-to-date documentation. This is a brand new position at Paack, therefore it is a great opportunity for starting something from scratch and making a real difference in the Engineering department’s workflow.

Main duties:

  • Partner with our engineering teams to create public user documentation throughout the application development life cycle.
  • Collaborate with engineers and product managers to learn about specific products or processes.
  • Write and edit technical documentation including reference manuals and product manuals.
  • Dig into source code for community and internally developed systems to collect technical details for documentation.
  • Have hands-on experience with capabilities in a sandbox environment.
  • Create developer-facing documentation and training materials.
  • Collaborate with our open source community to develop documentation standards.
  • Create and implement optimizations to help content drive company growth.
