E-commerce sites are 💀 😴 💩. Online shopping has been the same uninspiring experience for the last two decades. A seismic shift in consumer culture is happening. Retro is at the forefront of this; we are bringing the fun and energy back to shopping by creating a familiar, yet wildly new shopping experience.
Retro was founded in 2021 by former early members and heads at Revolut. We are backed by the same people who funded and built some of the world's best technology companies. We've got the firepower to build a culturally impactful product and we need the right people to join us. Come aboard as we shape new landscapes in commerce and push the boundaries on what is possible! 🛸
