Insider's spotlight

What’s the vibe like in the office?

The Shopgate office vibe is totally killer! There’s nothing better than the amazing aroma of bacon along with fresh coffee in the mornings. Everyone congregates near the kitchen at breakfast and lunch. The laughter, the camaraderie and the love is brilliant within our Shopgate family! We make the most of our time together. Family + Love = Shopgate.

What makes someone successful on your team?

At SG you can take charge of your career and success if you're willing to put in the effort! The flexible startup environment caters to those who are hungry.
