About Us:

We are The Selling App. The fast and easy way to sell or buy almost anything, from fashion to toys, sporting goods to electronics, jewelry to shoes. Launched in 2013, Mercari quickly became the #1 shopping app in Japan. Now we're on a global mission to build a future where people everywhere feel empowered to sell the things they don't use, a future where all useful things are used. And with a fast-growing user base in the U.S. of over 35 million downloads, we are on our way to doing just that.

We are aggressively growing our engineering team to develop leading-edge infrastructures.

Recent Engineering Achievements:

* We built a data pipeline to analyze the status, weight, and cost of every item shipped on Mercari, and a machine learning model to suggest the best shipping options for sellers. This reduced shipping mistakes by over half.

* At Go Bold Days (internal hackathon), we created instant listings where you can list an item with full details by just taking one picture.
