We are currently looking for our ✨ First Hires ✨:
with a strong visual design sense, who is passionate about telling brands’ stories and understanding Marmalade users.
who is a collaborative thinker, has experience building modern web applications, and is excited to be the hub of our tech team.
who is excited about Marmalade’s mission and is eager to come on board. If you're a great candidate, we'll find a place for you.
Remember the last time you came across a store you never knew existed — but had exactly what you were looking for? We want to make this happen more often.
Today, we live in a winner-takes-most world that amplifies the mainstream, leaving little room for smaller, differentiated brands to get off the ground. But if you look under the covers, you will see that things are changing. Over the past few years, there has been an explosion of online storefronts, powered by ecommerce backends that cost less than a coffee a day. They are started by our family, friends, and neighbors, and this story is repeating itself across the country — there are now millions of small brands, created by people who care deeply about the products they sell, just waiting to be discovered. How many more entrepreneurs will come online next year?
At Marmalade, we are on a mission to help the world discover the amazing small businesses that bring joy to their customers and communities. In doing so, each of us as consumers benefits from more nuanced brands and products, and collectively we can bring equity to the way that internet platforms direct digital foot-traffic to small storefronts.
Marmalade leverages data and technology at scale, enabling consumers to engage with merchants through the lens of their unique identities. Together, we can build the first product that creates that magical experience of finding the perfect store you can’t wait to share.
Our founding team is based in New York City. We’ve adapted to working remotely and are open to hiring remote.
Come join us! We have done the work to identify a key unmet need, we have a team that can work at your level, and now it's a wide open field for you to take us to a product people love 💛
Here’s our promise to you:
You will be respected and included. You will work directly with the founding team — mission-driven people who love getting things done and who trust each other to take risks and make mistakes to innovate.
We will prioritize creating a safe space for diverse identities to grow and thrive.
You will play a significant role in shaping the vision and culture of Marmalade from the early days. We are a seed-funded venture with a sizable option pool — this is an opportunity to own and grow as the First Hire.
We recognize the value of strong benefits and are open to discussing your needs.
You will join a team motivated by a mission to serve consumers and small entrepreneurs. We registered Marmalade Labs Inc. as a Public Benefit Corporation (PBC) as one of hopefully many steps towards our goals of having a positive impact.

Respect is a big part of our culture and that includes respect for your time. After your initial email, we’ll kick off the following process:
Schedule a 30-minute phone conversation with one of the founders to get to know you and set expectations.
If there’s interest on both sides, we’ll get the team together to meet you and walk through a couple projects of your choice.
We may ask to catch up with former colleagues to better understand how you work within a team.
If both sides feel like there is a strong fit, we’ll work together on employment details so we all feel amazing about the opportunity.
