We’re Celebrating our Adafruit Team this #LaborDay – Jarad talks Gathering and Shipping Audits!
One of our Team Leads, Jarad, wears two hats here at Adafruit. See below for his breakdown on how he helps make sure your package gets to you at the right location and with all the right goodies:
Hello, my name is Jarad, and here at Adafruit Industries I play a double role as a UPS shipping auditor and as a Lead Gatherer.
During my time as a UPS shipping auditor I regularly comb through shipping data to ensure its integrity. Because Adafruit ships more packages out of SoHo than any other SoHo based company in NYC, this process is integral to ensuring our goods get to you quickly and without problems.
During my time as a Lead Gatherer I am responsible for filling invoice orders, maintaining stock, and ensuring that all orders leave the premises complete and on-time.

While Adafruit is not an independent journalistic institution, Adafruit strives to be a fair, informative, and positive voice within the community – check it out here: adafruit.com/editorialstandards
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
