More About Us:

Our members-only service removes all the hassles of traditional shopping, so customers don’t have to deal with annoying return forms, printing shipping labels or going to the post office — and can discover and try new brands and products without any anxiety or stress.

We currently deliver to top companies in SF (from Google and Salesforce to Airbnb and Pinterest), and we are slated to launch three more cities over the next year. Although we are a small team, we’re growing fast, and have been featured in Forbes and raised money from First Round Capital, SV Angel and other top e-commerce investors (including early investors in Pinterest, Refinery29, Cuyana and The RealReal).

The Lobby is an equal opportunity employer and we value diversity. All employment is decided on the basis of qualifications, merit and business need.
