Description

Who are we?

Mallzee is the UK’s leading multi-retailer fashion shopping app, and the original ‘Tinder for Fashion’. Our app helps people find, compare, save and buy clothes quickly and easily from hundreds of high street retailers. This approach now sees tens of millions of products rated every month from our app that's been downloaded nearly 1.5 million times.

Based on this success in early 2017 we launched our Mallzee Insights service to help retailers use this data to make better decisions about their products. Our core offering, Product Future, lets companies test new products before bringing them to market to predict likely successes of lines and in turn improve over and understock positions. This product is now used by a range of companies from multi-billion pound turnover retail giants to the best-emerging brands in the UK.

Founded in Edinburgh in 2013 we’ve raised 4 rounds of investment and grown to a team of 26. We’ve picked up a range of awards from leading tech publications, been featured in press around the world and seen Business Insider select us as one of the hottest startups in Scotland!

Our vision, mission, and our values

Our vision is simple; to make retail better for both the consumer and brands/retailers. In the current economic climate, this is more important than ever.

We do this by focusing on a single mission ‘Deliver a shopping experience that delights users and powers authentic insights to solve retail problems.’

We operate with a simple set of values linked to collaboration, development, outcome focused, success and fun!

But we’ll tell you all about these in your interview…
