About NearSt

Why we're here

We're NearSt, and our mission is to get people all around the world back into high street shops.

What we do

Today our retail technology platform helps shoppers find over 1.5 million LIVE products stocked in local shops all over London, ready to be ordered for 1-hour delivery or click&collect. Whether they’re a small independent or your favourite high street brand, we believe it should be easier to get what you want from a real shop than ordering it online.

Who we are

We're a tight-knit team of five who all share a common vision that what we’re building will define the future of how everyone shops. Being part of this team comes with “pocket money” to spend in our shops each month, and you’ll often find us out exploring new stores we’d love to work with.

Inside our Shoreditch office you’ll find music, food, plants, the occasional dog, inspiration we’ve found from the streets, and an entrepreneurial can-do mindset in people who want to make a real difference in the world. On Friday you’ll usually find a few beers open as part of our weekly roundup too.

We’re a young company that’s making waves, as headline speakers at WIRED’s annual retail event, selected members of Google’s mentoring programme, and with backing from Europe’s leading retail investors at True Capital.

So come join us and help change the way we all shop.

Why you'd like it here

  • Choose your own tools
    People are what make us, and you need to have the tools that let you do your best work. So let us know what that is, and we can usually make it happen.
  • Flexible Wellness package
    We're a young company, but that doesn't mean we can't offer a flexible wellness package. Everyone at NearSt gets a budget each month to spend on anything that will keep them, happy, healthy and well. Simple!
  • Own your own success
    We're proud to offer stock options in the company to our full time team members, giving you a stake in your own success.
  • Monthly promo codes to spend on NearSt
    Free stuff!!! It's important we're all users of our own products, so each month everyone on the team gets promo codes to spend on NearSt and experience what we're building.
  • Awesome office at the heart of London's startup community
    We're super-active members of London's startup scene, based just in the heart of Shoreditch. Music, Friday roundup drinks, lots of plants, lots of snacks, and of course coffee are all office staples.
  • Dog-friendly
    Don't want to keep Fluffles locked up at home alone? Bring him in! We love having (house-trained!) animals around the office.
  • Build something meaningful
    We believe the future of retail lies in our high streets, and you'll see your work every day impacting the lives of shoppers and shopkeepers up and down the streets of London (and soon, further afield). We have the ability and responsibility to make an incredibly positive change in the world.
