What do we do?

Celery is a platform for pre-orders (www.trycelery.com). Accept pre-orders easily and crowdfund on your own website.

Disney, Timex, Pebble, Coolest Cooler and thousands of businesses use Celery to bring their product to life with pre-orders and custom crowdfunding. Celery is founded by a team of crowdfunding and e-commerce experts who are alums from MIT, Stanford, Groupon, Foursquare and LinkedIn. The Company is backed by Y Combinator, Max Levchin, SV Angel, and other top investors.

Why join us?

1) We are the leading solution for white labeled crowdfunding and pre-orders
2) We obsess over designing and building the right things for our customers
3) We work well autonomously (and remotely) and believe in a healthy work-life balance (sadly, this often isn't the case!)

Technical challenges

1) Adapt the highly successful mechanics of crowdfunding and apply it to more than just hobbyists
2) Shopping carts poorly meet the needs of modern startups – we want to change that
3) Javascript – all day err day
