Community Development Intern (Los Angeles)

Description

Us

Depop is a mobile app and global marketplace where the world’s most inspiring creative

community comes to buy, sell, discover, and explore. What’s your @depop?


Story

Depop was founded by graphic designer, artist, and co-founder of PIG magazine and RETROSUPERFUTURE sunglasses, Simon Beckerman. Originally a social network where PIG’s readers could buy items featured in the magazine, Depop evolved into a buying and selling platform when Simon had a coffee table full of things he’d been meaning to sell, but wished there was an easy way to do it. After realizing that Depop needed a selling function, Simon re-envisioned the app as a global marketplace — a mobile space where you can see what your friends and the people you’re inspired by are liking, buying, and selling. In turn, your friends and creative influencers all over the world can see the things you like, buy, and sell, and are inspired by you.

This ecosystem has supported Depop becoming a global conduit of connection, not only in m-commerce, but culture, design, and creative communities around the world.
