We're the only peer-to-peer marketplace dedicated to streetwear.


Why join us?
  • Graduated from YC W18 and our $2M Seed round was led by Kleiner Perkins and YC partners.

  • It took us 6 months to go from $0 to $1M in monthly sales and become profitable.

  • Users love our product and last month we grew sales by 24% and our active user base by 51%.


Engineering at BUMP
Engineering team and processes

Currently, our engineering team consists of Zack our Director of Engineering and our CEO Jack who both work incredibly closely with our Product Designer Sara. Given the early stage of the company we've just moved to a 2 week sprint that involves a retro session at the end so we can openly discuss how we can make the next sprint even better.

Since we're so young, any engineers joining BUMP are owning entire products (web, iOS, Android) so have a huge say on the structure of their own teams and processes as we grow.

Technical Challenges

Because our typical user is 15 years old this presents a number of both interesting and unique technology challenges. We strive to make everything we do as simple as possible for the end user which often means taking on that complexity ourselves - which is the interesting part!

For example, right now we're building what we're calling 'Discord for fashion' within BUMP to help connect the 200K monthly active users on BUMP to each other. This involves supporting thousands of messages per second and building a fully fledged messenger within our marketplace.

Projects you might work on
  • You would be building our web app completely from scratch - our Product Designer Sara has built out some incredible flows and we're now super excited to let our community access BUMP on desktop!

  • You would be owning our Android app which has just been launched with the help of a contractor we know.
