About FloorFound

Recommerce retail is growing at 25x the rate of full price, as environmentally sensitive, value-shopping consumers have become more open to buying second hand. Historically, retailers have missed out on this opportunity and FloorFound is enabling them to participate in it. By doing so, we both grow the retailer’s customer base and make a meaningful sustainability impact.

We’ve gathered a team that is best in class to work on a precarious problem to benefit the retailer, consumer, and our planet. Joining our team means serving some of the biggest retail brands in the industry today, while building a company that will last.
