Who we are
 

Farfetch is unlike anything in the world of fashion and technology.

Our mission: to revolutionize the way the world shops.

To do it, we need innovators. People who challenge convention and dare to dream.

We’ve gone from a start-up to a billion dollar business. But we’re not done yet. Far from it.

Be bold.

Be brilliant.

Together, we can be extraordinary

We have rapidly grown into a truly global company since our launch in 2008 and we’re continuing to grow. Our family now includes over 400 independent fashion boutiques across Europe, North and South America and Asia; we demonstrate our ‘Think Global’ value in everything we do.

We are a global team of over 1,000 people and have offices based in London, New York, LA, Porto, Lisbon, Guimaraes, Sao Paulo, Shanghai, Moscow, Hong Kong & Tokyo.

We are a company with an entrepreneurial spirit and innovative culture. We are positive, passionate and live our values: Be human, Be brilliant, Todos Juntos, Be Revolutionary, Think Global and Amaze Customers day to day.

Our new luxury office space is set in the heart of the digital district in London. We offer ‘brilliant benefits’, free fruit, free breakfasts, wine time Friday and a chance to work with an inspirational and high performing team.
