Wrapt · Jul 12th 2017
We are seeking a mid-level developer hungry to drive our technical build out work, in close collaboration with our software development firm. We aim to launch in late 2017.

We are a company with committed, experienced professionals from social change brand sectors including luxury travel, consumer products, and pioneers of social change brands where we have led marketing, communications, HR and operations functions.
Now taking our user testing to launch, this person will take on more responsibility, driving the build out of our platform towards launch, and looking to build our tech team as we grow. Essential is an understanding of e-commerce, machine learning and an attitude of hard work and problem solving.
Wrapt has a vision for a social impact and we are aimed at upending the $800 Billion gift giving industry by bringing curation, personalization and artisanship back to gift-giving.
