Curtsy was started by four high school friends who wanted an easier and more sustainable way to sell and shop for fashion.  Despite our 10x growth over the last year, we’re still a fairly lean team.

We noticed that existing fashion resale apps were hard to use, filled with spam, and dominated by businesses — not real people.  Curtsy is a sustainable alternative to fast fashion that helps women simplify their lives, switch up their style, and earn extra cash. We’re focused on Gen Z which is the most underserved demographic within the resale category.

We’ve doubled our business in the last few months and just recently broke the top 20 apps list for the shopping category in the App Store. We have hundreds of thousands of monthly active users, strong customer loyalty, and have grown 30% monthly for the last year.

We’re a Y Combinator company (S19) and recently closed our Series A led by Index Ventures with participation from  CRV, Kevin Durant, and other top-tier angel investors.

  • Previous recruiting experience, ability to identify influential, ambitious students on college campuses to partner with
  • Great communication and leadership ability
  • Positive, outgoing, and inspiring personality and ability to motivate others

  • Flexible work life, based in San Francisco when you want to come into the office
