Life at 1stdibs

While our lifeblood is our strong network of dealers, trade clients, and global consumers, our driving spirit comes from the people who walk our halls everyday: our employees.

Membership to the 1stdibs team requires insatiable curiosity, focused ambition, and a passion for art, design, and technology. Just as our marketplace carries unique objects with wide-ranging provenance, our employees come from all walks of life to co-create the 1stdibs experience: MFAs mix with MBAs; gamers collaborate with classical pianists; industry veterans rub shoulders with recent college graduates. The work that we collaborate on share a common theme: they involve problems that challenge us to explore new, untapped areas while also supporting the needs of our existing dealers and clients. Recent projects include building a messenger platform for the global marketplace; designing product design pages that balance practical information with elegance and style; and developing a dealer dashboard communication tool to support Hyperwallet launch.

But working at 1stdibs isn’t just about the work. A typical day in our beautifully-appointed offices might include an interactive workshop on leadership skills; a Lunch & Learn on ballpoint drawings led by a colleague who wrote the authoritative book on the topic; a cold glass of craft beer at the end of the day from our in-office bar; and joining in on a game of basketball with the ‘Dibs on Dribs team. Other employee-initiated groups include Outdibs, our LGBTQ community; Dibversity, our diversity & inclusion team; Movie Club, which hosts monthly movie nights; The Most Beautiful Sings on Earth, our competitive karaoke team; among others.

Being a part of the 1stdibs team means strengthening an organization with deep, entrepreneurial roots. These roots continue to sprout new office locations, adjacent categories, and new buyer segments. We are each shaping the future history of 1stdibs through the work we do in building the global destination for those clients who must have 'first dibs' on treasures from around the world.


1stdibs is the premier luxury marketplace for rare and beautiful objects in furniture, fashion, fine art, and jewelry. We connect the world’s most respected dealers and makers with sophisticated collectors who share in the pursuit of beautiful design. In doing so, we partner closely with progressive dealers to define and shape the future of antique, – more...
