Depop is the most fun way to buy and sell straight from your pocket. It’s social, it’s unique, and it’s growing. We have an international team of 85 with our HQ in London, and teams in New York and Milan.
We're looking for a special someone to be a big part of the team building the backbone of our app. With millions of users, and only a relatively small engineering team, Depop is a fantastic place for engineers who love to solve interesting problems that come with high growth.
We love to welcome new people into the team and look forward to meeting people who take pride in doing a great job. At Depop you'd be a big part of helping us create a huge social marketplace and, of course, have a lot of fun along the way.
