Mercari is Your Marketplace. We make it super easy to sell (or buy) almost anything. We all have things we don’t use, never used or simply outgrew. But that stuff still has value. Mercari gives you the power to sell it, ship it, and earn some cash for it, simply and intuitively. Fashion to toys. Sporting goods to electronics. All the brands you know and love. Our mission is simple: to make selling as easy as buying. And with 50M+ downloads in the U.S. and 350k+ new listings every day, we're just getting started.
As the Senior Product Manager of the Item Understanding team you will be leading the efforts to solve the most complex problem facing pre-owned marketplaces today - understanding what our users are listing. Is this blouse Off-Shoulder, Asymmetric, or both? Is this Magic the Gathering card from Innistrad or from Ravnica? Does it even matter? The Item Understanding team asks, answers, and solves these questions and many more to ensure that Mercari remains the easiest way to transact pre-owned goods.
