About Dosh: 
Dosh is revolutionizing the way the world does cash back. We are the fastest growing app that finds cash for consumers and helps businesses acquire and retain customers. Dosh subscribers (Doshers) get cash back for traveling, shopping, and dining out at thousands of merchants nationwide. Using breakthrough technology to eliminate wasted advertising spend, Dosh puts that money back into the pockets of consumers and businesses. 

We’re a two-sided marketplace offering merchants/brands an online-to-offline performance based advertising solution through card-linked offers. For our Doshers, we are providing a completely frictionless way to get cash back. No cutting coupons. No scanning receipts. No hassle. Just cold, hard cash. Doshers can then transfer the cash directly into a bank account, PayPal, Venmo, or donate to a charity conveniently through our app! Our product is disrupting the trillion dollar advertising industry by connecting merchants directly with their consumers.

An Insider's view of Dosh

What’s the vibe like in the office?

I love coming in to work every day. You can really start to feel the energy of a startup here. We have a big "work hard play hard" culture where the main priority is figuring out how to solve our business and technology needs, but we also have so many people that love to get involved with movie days, sports, happy hours, and other fun activities.

At Dosh, career growth presents itself in a variety of forms. Whether that’s learning more advanced technical skills, taking on increased responsibilities, or working on bigger and more challenging projects, there are ample opportunities to work on new and interesting projects that are critical to the success of our company.

Ryan

Senior Director, Engineering

How do you make yourself accessible to the rest of the team?

As the sole lawyer in the company, I consider the team to be my internal clients. I make myself available by having an open door, attending product and engineering meetings, responding timely to Slack and making sure the entire company understands the role of a General Counsel and the value that I can add.

Courtney

General Counsel

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

It’s important to look beyond the design industry for inspiration to carve a distinctive path. Inspiration can come from nature, music, movies, art, or a conversation with a colleague with a completely opposite professional background. I encourage my team to look beyond the obvious destinations for solutions that push us beyond what we know.

Director, Marketing Communications Design
