ABOUT BOOSTED COMMERCE

Boosted Commerce (founded in 2020) is a CPG platform focused on accelerating the growth of beloved consumer brands. We do this by acquiring, investing in, and growing third party seller businesses (mainly FBA based) and through original product development across verticals that we believe offer exceptional opportunity. Over the next twelve months, Boosted will acquire dozens of seller businesses and launch a similar number of original products. The founding team at Boosted has successfully exited multiple companies and is looking for talented, entrepreneurial, driven, and creative people to join us on our current journey.

The founding team has raised significant funding to acquire and build a diversified portfolio of brands on the world’s most dominant e-commerce platform, Amazon.

With e-commerce revenue of over $250 billion annually representing over 50% of total sales on the internet, Amazon products are being sold at scale across every possible consumer category. Amazon’s marketplace of third-party sellers accounts for 58% of all Amazon e-commerce sales with over 1 million sellers on the platform.

With the goal of acquiring 100 third-party sellers businesses over the next five years, Boosted is in need of a top team of qualified and passionate contributors. Joining Boosted at this early stage represents an opportunity to grab early market-share and drive inorganic growth that will ultimately lead the company down a very clear path to profitability.

Our Data Engineers will help build an engineering stack and culture from scratch. This culture will be focused on learning, growing and establishing career paths for every level on the engineering spectrum. This is a high trajectory position best suited for the curious and technically adept mind – following a process that assures quality in every piece of code in a continuously learning environment. The core work includes establishing the building blocks of our first ever data pipeline, complete with scheduling, ETL, reporting and visualization. Our end products will harvest a tremendous amount of online transaction, product and audience data that will serve as the foundation of our scientific models.
