Job Description:

Curated is on a mission to help people find exactly what they're looking for
Whether it's your first snowboard, a brand new baby stroller, or a much needed upgrade to your coffee machine - shopping is hard when the stakes are high. We make it easy by connecting customers with Real Experts who can answer their needs faster. -
Curated is the home of America's biggest community of Real Experts
Real Experts aren't sales assistants. They're people living ordinary lives, who also happen to be obsessively passionate about something. They have real, on-the-ground, lived experience - they're not proficient in tennis, they're fluent in it.
Making high-stakes purchases easier is only the beginning
Our Real Experts connect with customers in ways that would be unimaginable in any other retail context. They work hard to understand your needs, trade stories, help make plans, and keep in touch.
It's why customers are obsessed with Curated - and why our Real Experts have a 4.96 average star rating over 85,000+ reviews. About the role:
