About the company: 

Fairmart is an early-stage community commerce company with a mission to help local stores thrive in the digital age.

We are a diverse team of technologists and builders who love to see the direct impact of our work on the lives of our customers. Those who are successful at Fairmart are intensely curious and bring a fierce passion to their work.

Our culture is our competitive advantage, and you will have a unique opportunity to nurture its evolution and growth.

Our founders bring a combined 25 years of experience from industry giants such as Shopback, Redmart, and DJI. The company is supported by prominent VCs such as Entrepreneur First, HAX, and SOSV.
