EasyPost was founded in 2012 as the first RESTful API for shipping. EasyPost has thousands of customers shipping billions of packages using our Shipping API each month. Our customers range in size from public companies to SMBs. We offer a Shipping API that solves complex logistics problems for online merchants, enabling the delivery of an online shopping experience that delights customers.
Founded in 2012, EasyPost is a YC unicorn whose mission is to make shipping simple for businesses, from garage startups to the Fortune 500. Shipping, now more than ever, is the backbone of the global economy, but integrating the technology-enabled operations of a modern business with the low-tech and complex shipping industry has always been a challenge. EasyPost solves this problem with the first developer-friendly REST API for shipping, and we continue to push boundaries and discover new ways to simplify shipping for all. Our team is rapidly growing, and this is the perfect time to get on board. Join us, and help build the shipping infrastructure of the future.
