About Us
Browze is hiring! But wait, who even are we?

We're a cross-border marketplace that curates unique products directly from factories overseas. In other words, we bring you the products you want at fair prices, with minimal shipping costs, because we're sending them direct from the factory. No markups, no middlemen. Just us.

We're hiring because we've been expanding like crazy -- consistently 2x year over year, to be exact. And because of that, we're building out our team to launch Browze into the next level of growth, so we can keep reshaping and improving the cross-border shopping experience.

So what are you waiting for? Send in an application and tell us about yourself. We'd love to meet you!
