Why we started Curtsy

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 small team of 15 people.

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.

About the role:

We’re hiring a visual designer to support the creative needs of our marketing and content efforts. As an early team member, you’ll be working directly with the founding team to ensure that Curtsy’s mission, values, and brand is consistently applied to everything we produce. If you’re a maker, we’d love to talk to you.

What you’ll do:

  • Own our visual brand and marketing design efforts.
  • Collaborate with marketing and product to produce campaigns and graphics that support our growth efforts across the app, our social media, email, packaging, and print.
  • Contribute to our evolving brand identity and visual guidelines across product and marketing.
  • Delight customers through visual storytelling.

We’re looking for:

  • 5 years full-time experience as a visual or communications designer
  • Well versed in Figma, Sketch, or Adobe tools
  • Knowledgeable on design best practices
  • Excellent communication and writing skills

Benefits:

  • Tremendous equity upside from joining our early team in a leadership role.
  • Competitive base pay.
  • Unlimited PTO and a culture of working hard but actually taking time off.
  • Extremely flexible work life, based in San Francisco when you want to come into the office.
  • Non-elective 401K contributions.

Commitment To Diversity

We view empathy as a competitive advantage, which is why we value a diversity of backgrounds and perspectives. We strongly encourage women, people of color, and other under-represented groups to apply. We don’t discriminate on the basis of race, religion, color, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status, or disability status.
