Be on the forefront of fashion: fund prototypes, save up to 30% and help to turn ideas into actual products.
You decide what Betabrand makes next — it could even be your own design!
Betabrand is an online clothing company based in San Francisco's Mission District. Founded in 2010, we've been building a brand through crowdfunding, crowdsourcing, crowd-everything!
Our approach to e-commerce is covered by national and international media nonstop. The result: a very active (and growing) audience of customers and fans, as well as top investors like the Foundry Group and OATV.
We hire creative people who want to push the limits of our already limit-pushing enterprise — to keep things fun, and the rest of us sharp.
We're looking for an experienced Full Stack Engineer with emphasis on back-end chops. You'll be joining a small scrappy team building and experimenting with new ideas for social e-commerce.
