About Us

Born out of frustration with the traditional cash register business, ShopKeep was designed by a retailer with a noble aim: to rescue independent business owners from the nightmare of archaic point of sale systems, and replace them with something beautiful, simple, and affordable. It turned out that by doing this, we were giving our merchants a fighting chance against the big guys.

Today, our mission is simple: empower independent business owners to dream big and to fight smart. We’re doing this through our cloud-based architecture and intuitive software that delivers the data small business owners need to run smarter businesses.

As we adapt to recent changes in the way our merchants are having to conduct business, we are looking for talented and experienced engineers who can help us align around initiatives and build out the changes needed to ensure we continue to support our merchants in these challenging times.
