Senior Frontend Engineer
Finematter is a fashion-tech start-up, on a mission to digitalize the EUR 300bn+ jewellery market, one of the last remaining analog industries in the global retail landscape.
As a marketplace, our ambition is twofold;
- Create the leading online destination for fine jewellery. We want to redefine the category as we know it, and transform the way people think about and buy jewellery - taking jewellery from consumption good to investment asset
- Help creative entrepreneurs in the jewellery industry scale beyond one store. We want to build the new operating system for the entire industry, and solve the most complex challenges for maker-CEOs, from certification and inventory management to pricing and raw material purchasing.
The scale of the opportunity is enormous. People have bought and traded in jewellery since the beginning of time, and in most cultures, people’s most significant life events are celebrated and eternalized with jewellery. The global jewellery market is valued at more than EUR 300bn, and we’re building a modular end-to-end technology platform to connect makers with buyers all across the globe and change the way this market operates today.
With offices in London and Copenhagen, Finematter has its roots in Scandinavian design with a global outlook. We’re currently a team of 10 experienced people with backgrounds in the jewellery and fashion industry, as well as successful startups and companies (Pandora, McKinsey, Threadsstyling, Peakon, etc).
Finematter raised a EUR 1.7mn seed-round in August 2020, and is backed by some of Europe’s leading VC funds and investors, including Heartcore Capital and Henrik Holmark (former CFO of Pandora).
