It's a unique opportunity to be a part of the creation of an ecommerce platform.

There's only a few of such software, and Stylehub's goal to support complete retail operations increases the complexity. We're facing a huge challenge. Some might find us crazy, since one feature of ours regularly exceeds the complexity of whole products of other startups.

It's not another app, it's not a regular startup, it's not a shopping cart. It's an advanced, well-thought productivity tool which includes deep knowledge of many fields to really help end-to-end operations of a business.

We're not simply looking for the best programmers, you need to be a real developer, a creative, strong and professionally committed person to travel along our special journey.
