About Us

Are you ready to change an industry? Excited to enter on the ground floor of a fast-paced, high-growth startup in a wide open market?

There are over 1M independent retailers in the US & Canada, doing more than twice the revenue of Walmart & Amazon combined. Economic data shows: compared to the big box stores, local retailers are flourishing because they offer a better shopping experience. However, the antiquated wholesale industry is holding independent stores back, & making life miserable for the makers trying to reach them.

Our goal at Faire is to rethink the wholesale model with an online marketplace that makes it easy for retailers & makers to connect & succeed together. Instead of flying all over the country to attend trade shows, retailers can visit our site to shop for hundreds of curated makers that they can try out totally risk-free. This revolutionary offering has drawn over 20,000 retailers to the Faire platform in less than a year after our launch.

Our founders led product & engineering for Square Capital ($10B deployed) & the Cash app (Squares only app in the top 20 of the iOS app store). We're backed by some of the top VC funds including Sequoia, Khosla, & Forerunner, & we were named one of the top 8 companies at our Y-Combinator Demo Day last year.

We are looking for smart, resourceful & passionate people to join this movement with us.To learn more about our culture, please visit our careers page!
