StyleSeat is a rare opportunity to join a startup empowering small business owners across the country to be more successful in doing what they love. We are also the go-­to marketplace destination for consumers to discover, book, and pay for beauty and grooming services. Within the first year of being on the StyleSeat platform, the average beauty professional sees their revenue increase by 70 percent.

Our professional community is diverse, 75% are women and 50% are minority-owned small businesses. We have powered over 120 million appointments booked and $10B in revenue for small businesses and are on the path to much more.


Why join us?
  • We are a highly collaborative working environment, and everyone has a voice in the product and technical direction of the company. All engineers have code in production within their first week. That’s something we firmly believe in. And no matter what department you’re in, you will regularly work on projects that directly touch our community. We promote from within and take chances on our talent; it’s very much a part of our culture. If you are curious and a self starter, the sky’s the limit. You’ll have the opportunity to work closely with experts, so you can learn directly from seasoned team members. If you step up and own it, we will recognize that. Our CEO asks in every management meeting how we can be supporting and further investing in our team.

  • Don’t you think it’s good that we haven't needed money in a long time? We became profitable early on, and we were responsible about our growth. We’ve grown almost entirely organically and have just started to invest in marketing. Travis Kalanick was our first advisor to Melody, our CEO, in 2010 and has always been an important partner. When we thought, what are the best ways to help our small business owners, bringing in the founder of one of the fastest growing businesses of all time seemed like a good idea.

  • One of our values as a company is diversity, and one way we support that is by hiring outside of SF. Our remote Engineers are still very much a part of our team, they aren’t just hired guns. They have opportunities for career growth. They come in for office visits every quarter and they participate in events like our hackathon.


Engineering at StyleSeat
Engineering team and processes

Our engineering team uses Agile practices to deliver on 2-week cycles. We push to production multiple times per week and app updates every week. Most Engineers have code in production within the first week. Our teams work on a new theme each quarter and are not pigeonholed into a product vertical. We unit test our code and we treat coding as a craft.

Technical Challenges

We have hundreds of millions of dollars flowing through our platform and millions of appointments booked every month. We build both enterprise-level tools for Beauty Professionals as well as a consumer marketplace for Clients to find and book them.

Projects you might work on
  • We’ve been building our supply side, building powerful business management tools for Beauty Professionals, now we can focus on driving and scaling demand, and building a consumer brand that people are excited about.

  • In the next 12 months, we are moving from Python2 to Python3, and going to 100% React and React Native on the frontend.

  • In the next 12 months, we are implementing infrastructure automation using Terraform, and building a microservice deployment pipeline.

  • We are also continuing to invest in and build our Data Science and Analytics (Datalytics) team.
