Come and join us 👋
Hi, we're NearSt!
A retail tech startup on a mission to get people back into high street shops. 💪
Our technology shows online shoppers what’s in local stores by making the products in those stores visible in places like Google and Facebook. If you search for a product in Google, and it pops up showing you it’s available nearby, there’s a good chance we’re the ones behind the scenes making that possible for Google (who trust our tech globally to make this all possible). 👀
We believe the future of the high street is one where every product in every shop is connected directly to the web, making it genuinely faster and easier to get something from a real shop nearby than ordering it for delivery online. The high street has incredible value that’s currently hidden from the internet, and we see it as our job to unlock it (see our CEO talking about it at The Next Web!).
What it's like at NearSt
NearSt is a collaborative place, which means we work together and no one gets left behind. We value positive, open communication and diversity of thought. We do our best work when everyone can freely express their ideas and feels comfortable challenging others, all while having a good time.
Our team of 20-ish come from all sorts of backgrounds, and de-biasing hiring to keep this diversity is super important to us. We don't ask for CVs and instead focus on questions to uncover what you're great at (the first stage is reviewed totally blind!). It’s probably why 1/2 of our engineers are career-switchers.
We’re a hybrid company, where each team sets their own office schedule to do their best work. When you do come to our Old Street HQ at Work.Life, you’ll find music, food, the occasional doggo, a stellar coffee machine (essential!), and a team who eat lunch together most days.
Personal growth is important, and we have a progression framework for growing people as individual contributors or people managers, backed by a personal learning and development budget each year.
We believe people do their best work when they trust and enjoy working with one another, so we do everything we can to foster that culture.
