About Hip eCommerce
Within the $200 Billion worldwide collectibles market, there are many unique categories. At Hip eCommerce, our goal is to deliver a reimagined customer experience for both buyers and sellers. How are we doing that? We create category-specific marketplaces, built from the ground up, that understand how collectors browse, search and collect each type of collectible. We currently operate three marketplaces--HipComic, HipStamp, and HipPostcard--and plan to grow into other categories in the future. Since our 2016 launch, our marketplaces have gained 2,000+ Sellers, 200,000+ Buyers, and 12 Million+ Listings and we just raised a $5 Million+ Series A round to expand our team and continue building the next great e-commerce company. Are you ready to build it with us?
We’re a fully distributed company, which means our entire team works remotely full-time. By removing the geographic requirements of an office, we’re able to hire the best, which means you’re working with the best. With team members across the United States, Philippines, and South America, we foster a culture that values collaboration and connection. To help facilitate that, our team members are primarily working standard Eastern Time hours.

What else is in it for you?
Competitive salary and stock options (for US employees) is just the beginning; we also have a number of Benefits & Perks designed to support our team members beyond just a paycheck. We have unlimited personal/vacation days, a healthcare plan 100% paid by the company for employees, and a 401k (US employees). We also offer monthly wellness, internet, and music allowances. Our team is entirely remote (that’s right, no more commuting) and we do our best to set you up for success by providing home office equipment when you join the team. Once you’ve been using your work laptop for 3 years, we’ll replace it with a new one, wipe it of any business-related work and it becomes your own property to do with as you see fit. We may be remote, but we still have team pizza parties, movie & book clubs, and home deliveries of treats and more to keep things fun.
