Warehouse Manager London

Who we are

 

Paack is an avant-garde technology start-up in the logistics sector. It was founded in 2015 by three Spanish friends and, since then, the company has experienced strong global growth and it currently operates in 70 cities across 4 countries. 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 the 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.

 

Following our corporate values; we care, we thrive, we innovate, Paack is looking for passionate and committed people who inspire and support others that constantly look to improve, have initiative, and help the company accomplish its goals.

 

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