Who are we?
Mallzee is the UK’s leading multi-retailer fashion shopping app, and the original ‘Tinder for Fashion’. The 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.
Based on this success in early 2017 the company launched a series of B2B insight products; Product Intelligence - helps retailers better understand the real time performance of their existing product ranges to make informed merchandising, marketing and stocking decisions. Product Future enables retailers to predict future best and worst sellers prior to ordering stock, helping them significantly improve profitability.
Founded in Edinburgh in 2013 Mallzee has raised 4 rounds of investment and grown to a team of 23 based at our city centre offices. We’ve picked up a range of awards from leading tech publications, been featured in press articles around the world and seen Business Insider select us as one of the hottest startups in Scotland.

What’s our vision?
Our vision is two fold; our award winning personalised shopping app is already recognised as market leading and we will continue to iterate on this to constantly deliver the best user experience. We’re now working with industry leading retailers to help them improve their marketing, merchandising and buying functions using the tens of millions of product ratings generated every month.
Mallzee is changing the apparel industry by moving brands and retailers past gut feel decisions by bringing consumer preferences into the heart of their decision making processes.
We’re doing this with a forward thinking, fun loving and collaborative environment where all voices are heard. Across the company our focus is on building a global tech business that everyone is proud to work for and that changes an industry that desperately needs help.
