    Bonsai’s mission is to help people find and buy the products they want, as soon as they realize they want them. We began in 2016 as a streetwear style and news app. Now we’re leading the market shift to content-driven commerce. We are helping publishers launch e-commerce as a new line of business. We already do this for over 200M+ monthly unique visitors on some of North America’s leading publishers, including BuzzFeed, HGTV, Well & Good.

    Our culture is for everyone. We believe a culture of trust, respect, belonging, and equality allows people to bring their whole selves to work and brings diverse thinking to our product. We believe the best ideas can come from anyone, and that together we can make a bigger impact. We’re a highly collaborative environment and we support one another and help each other solve complex problems. Curiosity sits at the heart of our product - we strive to always be learning, and we’re curious about what makes people tick and how new technologies can change the way people work.
