Whatnot (YC W20) is a livestream shopping platform and marketplace backed by Andreessen Horowitz and Y Combinator. We’re one of YC’s top companies and one of the fastest growing marketplaces ever. We’re laser focused on creating an exceptional software company, team, and place to work.
Our mission: enable anyone to turn their passion into a business and bring people together through commerce. We’re building the future of ecommerce; an interactive community where creators can make a living off their passion.
Did we mention we’re high growth? We’ve 10x’d the company in 6 months! In January, Whatnot was 10 people. Today, our team is approaching 60 and will exceed 100 by year end. We’re hiring forward thinking problem solvers across all functional areas. We recruit thoughtfully, can move fast, and are scaling fully remotely.
Curious about who thrives at Whatnot? We’ve found that low ego, a growth mindset, and leaning into action and high impact goes a long way here.
The ecommerce experience has been static for 20+ years and is perhaps the largest opportunity in the startup space today. Livestream shopping is a $170B GMV market in China and has grown 100% YoY. Retail is a $5T market opportunity!
Whatnot is rewriting our React Native application to native Android and iOS, and we’re looking for the best talent to help us get there! You’ll be tasked with migrating existing features to the native app as well as building new features and enhancing our current product.
