Setting sail with ShipBob

Doejo recently had the pleasure of working with Y Combinator backed startup ShipBob to develop a better marketing website, designed to attract and convert visitors into customers.

ShipBob offers on-demand pickup, packing & shipping to save businesses time and money. With integrations for eBay, Shopify and Etsy, ShipBob makes sense for online sellers big and small.

Anyways, we’re really happy with the project and they love what we were able to do for their brand: create a polished, professional-caliber look and feel, with effective messaging, prominent calls-to-action and a nice responsive UX.

This rare hand-processed Pacamara for the youthful Finca Campo Alegre in Ecuador sits cleanly in the cup with a beautiful finish. Bow Truss Master Roaster Dennis Jackson traveled to Ecuador in the autumn of last year for the Taza Dorata, a regional coffee evaluation and competition similar to the Cup of Excellence, were Finca Campo Alegre caught his eye. This is a very young farm only in the first year of production, yet scoring an incredible tenth overall via international jury, unheard of with such a youthful farm. Dennis brought samples for further cupping and analysis and our team was blown away. Our goal in years to come is to ferment the direct relationship with the farm and produce more outstanding coffees like this one! Check out this short video we created to document Bow Truss’ first direct trade.

Last year we helped our friends from Detroit, the creators of STARTUP USA TV show to film this short interview with Julie Smolyansky, the CEO of Lifeway Foods. In this video Mrs. Smolyansky offers a few words of advice on how to run a successful business.

matt day

Matthew Lissner, long serving Money Man at Doejo, is stepping down tomorrow. His role as Accountant, though critical, has been dwarfed by his contributions as Master DJ, bisque connoisseur, HR aficionado, Elite Yelper, giraffe puppeteer and honorary head of Doejo’s music department.

He has touched all our hearts with his read-out-loud-tweets and made us laugh at things we would never want to admit that we found funny. Not to mention all that he did to keep our finances in order.

In honor of Matt, Doejo has distributed t-shirts with his likeness that employees will be required to wear every February 27th, which will be known as Matthew Lissner Day henceforth.

Matt, we love you and wish you the best :).

Learning Django at Doejo

Let’s face it. Code is scary.

Which is why Doejo hosted the first gathering of the Friendly Django Meetup group last week, a place where beginning developers could learn about the Django web framework in a friendly environment. Django powers websites like Instagram and Pinterest.

Over 25 people came to work through Django 101, a hands-on workshop to install the software to get a working Django website. We drank tea, wrote code, and made friends.

If you’re interested in learning how to code—and for free!—then join the meetup group to hear about all of the future workshops. The group will also have more practical resources on its official website.
