Culture & Jobs at StockX

Help shape the next generation of ecommerce for the next generation of consumer.

Working at StockX

Hiring in: Detroit

In a world where consumers increasingly value self-expression and individuality, the market for hard-to-find fashion, collectibles, and electronics has never been hotter. 

These coveted items are often in limited supply and high demand, selling and reselling for top dollar.

For a long time, this market for current culture has been accessible only to a select group of trendsetters. So as more consumers seek to participate in cutting-edge self-expression, how can they get a seat at the table? 

Enter StockX: The next generation of ecommerce for the next generation of consumer.

Our global platform offers unprecedented access to current culture while our data-driven, bid-ask model provides buyers with the real-time visibility to know they’re getting a fair price. And, unlike other ecommerce sites, StockX hand-checks every purchase (20,000+ daily trades) at one of our regional authentication centers. 

StockX’s special formula has rocketed the company to a multibillion-dollar valuation, with 10M+ lifetime trades on the platformmore than half of those coming in the last year. And we’re just getting started.

With key leadership and an inspiring vision in place, we’re poised for once-in-a-generation growth: into new product verticals, new audiences, and new geographies. To get there we’re looking for flexible, all-in teammates who are excited by ownership and the opportunity to take on emerging challenges. How do we fully leverage our robust data streams to provide personalized experiences and a truly responsive marketplace? How do we scale our authentication centers around the world while handling a rapidly increasing number of customer inquiries in multiple languages? 

If you’re a doer who’s ready to solve tough problems with plenty of laughs along the way, we’d love to hear from you. We welcome, embrace, and respect all dimensions of diversity. We’re committed to creating an inclusive environment where all team members are valued, supported, and respected—and no, you don’t need to know a thing about sneakers or fashion.
