Our mission is redefining the meaning of supply chain by helping independent artists sell and ship stuff directly to their fans for a fraction of the usual cost and effort of doing it themselves. In addition to selling and shipping Cards Against Humanity around the world, Blackbox helped ship the most–backed Kickstarter game in history, and ships everything from coffee accessories to comic books. To put it simply, we help our clients manage and grow their small businesses by simplifying a difficult obstacle—logistics—so that they can focus on doing what they love: creating.About the Role:
You will be joining the Design Team, reporting directly to the Head of Design. You will work alongside engineers and designers as a key contributor to our software product.
