We are a small, curious, resourceful team dedicated to making a big difference in a complicated industry. Every obstacle is seen as an opportunity for creative problem solving. We don’t draw lines between roles and departments - we all take responsibility for designing the best solutions for our users, whether they be our internal operations team, our merchants, or our logistics partners.

ARTA is backed by notable VCs like Notation Capital as well as key players in our industry including Sotheby’s, David Zwirner Gallery and Rashid Johnson to name a few. We have validated we can produce results for both our merchants and logistics partners, now it’s time to push the industry even further.


We are looking for a senior full-stack engineer to join our team. You will be working closely with our tight-knit product development team to implement services and systems for our own platform as well as expanding and implementing a robust API.
