As the world's largest marketplace for independent artists, our purpose is to create and inspire new ways of experiencing connection and a sense of belonging for every person. From everyday things, to the very thing, we connect people to millions of designs on any product, on demand.

Welcome to a place that will celebrate your achievements, celebrate you solving the hard problems not just the fixes and celebrate you rapidly getting to the core of the issue rather than striving for the perfect answer.

We run lean and flat, where you will have an opportunity to apply your skills across a wide variety of data spanning online/digital, customer/personal, and physical products.

  • Conduct ad hoc software analysis tasks and support business reporting and dashboards
  • Help shape new opportunities by understanding business priorities, communicating software technical options, reporting progress, and learning new technologies
  • Assist with system applications incident analysis and prevention

What You’ll Bring:

  • Proficiency in SQL and Python
  • Foundations of data design and data modelling principles
  • Experience in writing automated tests as part of the development workflow
  • Familiarity with streaming data pipelines and architectures using technologies like Kinesis or Kafka

  • Opportunity to work in a global organisation
  • Equity in your package
  • Monthly Wellness allowance

We’re creatively inspired commerce. And that inspiration starts with you. With your drive for progress over perfection and your courage to come together in celebration of creativity over convention. You’re inspired by art and those who make it, and we’re inspired by you.
