About Narrativ

Narrativ is a 40-person, seed-stage product recommendation marketplace that connects the best brands in retail (Target, Sephora, Chanel etc.) with the fastest-growing recommendation channel commerce publishers like Wirecutter (New York Times), the Strategist (New York magazine), and Allure (Conde Nast). This marketplace has the potential to transform a secondary digital marketing channel affiliate marketing into a first-tier priority in the $175b ecommerce space.  

By building technology that removes friction from a fragmented ecosystem, Narrativ has created value for both sides of this marketplace. Brands and retailers can now bid for traffic, gaining control over a high-potential revenue lever. Meanwhile, publishers earn more for their expertise, all without sacrificing quality or integrity. 

 

Why we’re special:

  • Ambitious technology: Our technology organizes the world’s product data in a way that’s useful (rather than intrusive) for consumers. We’ve built the largest product graph that spans across multiple retailers, featuring 80mm SKUs enriched with $20bn of monthly cart data.
  • Talented team: Fast Company recently named Narrativ one of the 50 best workplaces for innovators, fashion disruptor by Financial Times, and a technology pioneer by the World Economic Forum. We’re here to pursue greatness, embrace challenge and relentlessly improve every day.
  • Fast growth: We’re a diverse team -- with experience from Dropbox, Bloomberg to Glossier -- that’s doubling in size over the next year.

Join us for the opportunity to impact billions of shoppers on our mission to improve the value of every recommendation -- to create a better internet for shoppers.

What you’ll do:

  • Own full cycle recruiting processes for roles within Tech
