Whatnot is a community marketplace where you can safely buy, sell, go live and build a community with other like-minded people.
We got our start offering a buying and selling experience to collectors of Funko Pops and Pokemon cards. We became the leading marketplace for those communities and have found success launching into categories like sports cards, NFTs, and vintage fashion.
In July of 2022, we raised $260 million in a Series D funding round bringing our valuation to $3.7 billion, a 2.5x increase since our $1.5 billion valuation in September of 2021.
Our mission is to enable anyone to turn their passion into a business and bring people together through commerce. We enable anyone to connect, transact and build a business in one place -- Whatnot is bringing the in-person retail experience online.
Whatnot is a Livestream shopping and community marketplace where you can geek out with collectors and other like-minded people. Whatnot is backed by some of the industry’s best venture capital investors, including Andreessen Horowitz and Y Combinator. If enabling creators to make a living off their passion and building the future of e-commerce gets you excited, please apply!
The most important skills you’ll need to have are making sound product decisions and shipping high-quality products fast. We look for engineers with great product instincts who can own whole projects from start to finish.
The software team has a lot of individual responsibility and many more freedoms, so we need to hire people we can trust. Your ability to make good trade-offs and exercise good judgment is essential to us.
