About StockX:

StockX is the world’s first online ‘stock market of things’ for high-demand consumer products, including sneakers, watches and handbags. StockX connects buyers and sellers using the same methodology as the world’s stock markets – an anonymous ‘live Bid/Ask’ market. All products are physically authenticated by StockX, allowing participants to focus on the transparency of data available – including real-time market pricing, in-depth market analysis, individual portfolio tracking, historical sales and volume metrics. StockX launched in February of 2016. StockX TV, its ‘Mad Money for sneakers’ web series, began airing in April of 2017.

Why We’re Different:

StockX is a great place to work. It's like if you worked at Nike in 1964. It'd have been Phil Knight, Bill Bowerman, You, and some waffle irons. And together you were about to change the world. We don't have waffle irons, but you can bring your own.
