An Insider's view of Sendoso

What projects are you most excited about?

Our warehouses are *way* different than most. So, we’re straining our off-the-shelf warehouse management software to its limit. That means we get to build our own! And make sure it operates as well in a rented space across the world as it does in our own facilities with our own full-time staff.

Dan

Senior Software Engineer

What makes someone successful on your team?

I'm committed to offering my teams psychological safety, dependability, structure and clarity. I hire people that want to work and succeed as a team. I value critical thinking, a sense of urgency and the ability to quickly adapt to changing environments and business needs. Respect, trust, curiosity and active listening are the cornerstone traits.

Hetal Giaimo
