Sr Software Engineer
CHICAGO (REMOTE FRIENDLY) /
Everyone has their favorite college or band t-shirt, a company shirt, or a brand you like sporting. These apparel-based items are made at screen printing shops around the world and we help them stay organized and grow. It can be very difficult to manage a high-volume of those orders and that's where Printavo
comes in. On top of that, most current solutions are ancient, paper-based, and need more automation.
Printavo recently launched a new product, Printavo Merch
that's growing very fast. Printavo Merch helps our customers to launch online stores to collect payments and order details quickly. Here's an example. During COVID-19, Printavo Merch helped small businesses fundraise and stay afloat by generating over $1m in sales every month.
Let's build the future of our industry together!
