Venice, CA

An Insider's view of StackCommerce

What’s the vibe like in the office?

HUSTLE vibes. Everyone here is constantly pushing themselves and the team to do better and work smarter. We have incredibly talented, driven, creative and hardworking people here. One can't help but to rise up to the challenge, learn more and be part of it.


Customer Support

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

All businesses need one thing to thrive: customers. But one of the biggest problems is getting them. That’s where my partnerships team comes into play. We help the product makers of the world get new customers in a way that’s never been done before and we're pretty darn good at it!


Vendor Partnerships

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

Within my first few weeks at Stack, I was already working on projects that aggressively pushed my skillset into new areas. Now half a year in, I already feel far more well-rounded as a developer because of the small team and lack of organizational boundaries. This allowed me to try new roles and be a decision-maker on projects that have huge impact


Software Engineer

What unique initiatives do you have that encourage innovation?

One of my favorite initiatives is Hack Day when we ditch our daily tasks in favor of pursuing an out-of-the-box idea or product to improve the business. It’s a really fun event, and we’ve seen some of our most successful products come out of it! We also offer a $500/yr learning stipend to encourage the team to pursue new skills and personal growth.


Founder & CEO

What are some social events your company does?

We have a pretty full events calendar: Weekly Happy Hours, External Happy Hours, TedX Style "Stack Speaker Series," Hack Days, Beach Volleyball, Yoga, 3x3 Basketball Tournament, Company Cruise, Company Olympics, Annual Dodgers Game, Company Offsite, Company Anniversary Party, Annual White Elephant, Cook-Offs, Holiday Party, and more!
