About Juiced

‎ ‎

At Juiced we’re building the future of selling online – where sellers can easily source, list, and manage their products with the click of a button.

‎ ‎

Juiced in its current form is a web-app that gives online sellers access to; tailored product recommendations, cross-marketplace listing, inventory/order management, seller analytics, 70+ educational tutorials, and much more. We currently have integrations with eBay, Facebook Marketplace, Amazon Seller Central, Shopify and StockX, allowing sellers to sync everything they do on Juiced to their connected seller accounts.

‎ ‎

This is just the start though. Our vision is to build a fully autonomous AI-powered reselling super-platform that can run someone’s online resale business on autopilot. Utilizing the power of AI to connect our existing semi-automatic infrastructure, and with plans for a large Series A round later this year, we hope to make this a reality over the next 2 years.

 

‎ ‎

 

 

What’s Next

 

To date, we’ve done over $1 million in revenue from the Juiced Discord beta service. In March last year, we secured $100k in investment for 10% equity from 2 veteran angel investors.

 

We’ve mainly bootstrapped our company to date, leveraging various ventures such as Juiced’s Discord membership, our marketing agency, and other revenue streams to sustain us as we developed Juiced’s software platform – which was always the long-term goal for us.

 

Our founding team consists of three co-founders: Ben, the CEO, overseeing business operations in Miami, US; Shubham, serving as CTO and handling backend development in Dehradun, India; and Suraj, our CPO focusing on frontend development, also based in Dehradun, India.

 

As we reach a pivotal stage in our growth, we recognize the need to expand our development team beyond our 2 technical co-founders and to switch from remote work to in-person work in both the United States and India. Therefore, we are actively seeking to hire 2 new senior frontend engineers, 2 senior backend engineers, and 1 quality assurance engineer. These new hires are crucial to the upcoming release of the Juiced 2.0 platform.

 

If you’re seeking an easygoing job with unlimited PTO, then this job isn’t for you. We’re searching for hardcore developers who are up for the adventure of a lifetime and who share our passion and commitment to building the future go-to platform for sellers worldwide.
