Located in NYC, our team is extremely passionate about e-commerce, technology, and design, but we’re so much more than that.
We’re musicians, artists, entrepreneurs, environmentalists, animal lovers, and foodies. We’re fashionistas and geeks. We’re clean cut and tattooed. We’re Netflix binge watchers and deep thinkers. We’re also very much like you and your customers. We’re people.
In a world of screens and devices, we need to remember that these interactions can and should be personal. From our initial conversations to our post-launch support, you’ll always be dealing with people who care about you and your brand.
