shopkick – Why Work For Us?


What We Do

At shopkick, we envision a world where everyone is empowered and stops wasting time and money while shopping. We create rewarding shopping experiences for our millions of users that are easy and fun. For our Fortune 500 Brand and Retail partners, we create a digital layer over the physical world, driving engagement, store traffic and sales.

The Technology

We started the in-store presence detection industry with our ultrasonic audio transmitters and now lead the industry with the addition of our Bluetooth low energy beacons and intelligent use of mobile phone sensors.

We deliver engaging user experiences, creating a foundation centered around a modern real-time data streaming platform.

The Business

Our integrated mobile commerce ecosystem drives digital shoppers to physical stores, where 90% of retail transactions occur.

The Market Opportunity

The $3 trillion US retail market is undergoing massive transformation and we are a recognized leader in the space:
• World Economic Forum Technology Pioneer (2013)
• Inc’s 500 Fastest Growing Private Companies (2014)
• Golden Bevies Solution Provider of the Year (2015)

    Sales Operations Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at shopkick.

    Interview

    I come from an unconventional background for a start-up applicant, making it a bit hard to land an interview in the tech world. I appreciate Shopkick, specifically Mark, for taking a chance on me and looking at my application despite not being pulled by the algorithms in place. Even though I ultimately was not who they were looking for, I appreciate Mark not only for taking a chance and putting me in as a wild card, but for also taking 30 min to give me advice on how to put my best foot forward and land a tech job, even when I don't have the ideal background. Of all the jobs I applied for, no one else was that personal (outside of the staff from the company I currently work for)
