Postmasters (The Print & Mail Team) is one of the core engineering teams at Lob. This team owns and maintains the Print & Mail pipeline which is the core of our business. We are responsible for fulfillment of millions of mail orders created by our customers every month. In 2017, we fulfilled 25M mail pieces and nearly tripled it by fulfilling about 70M in 2018. In 2019, we're expected to fulfill over 100M mail pieces and as of September 20th, we've already fulfilled over 85M of them. We scaled our end-to-end mail processing pipeline by over 10x over the past year in order to meet our ever-growing business. We helped unlock a new revenue stream by building an international print and mail delivery network capable of supporting both US and international originating mail. We partner with our Operations team to build our global print and mail delivery network, the backbone of our business. While we scaled our end-to-end mail processing pipeline over 10x in the past year, some of the challenges we're currently working on revolve around reliability, automations and optimizations to help us operate at scale and scale further seamlessly to support an ever-growing business.
Lob was built by technical co-founders with a vision to make the world programmable. We offer two flagship APIs (print & mail and address verification) that enable companies to send postal mail as effortlessly as sending emails. Lob is venture-backed by the most reputable investors in tech, and we are rapidly growing our team to shape the future of our company and meet the demands of a quickly growing customer base and dynamic product offerings.
We give our employees a lot of responsibility and ownership of their work. You will have fun at work while engaging in challenging projects with the best and brightest.
