One Kings Lane also partners with top designers, decorators and industry insiders to deliver content that inspires, enlightens and informs.

We love to code fast (and use best practices), iterate on feedback, and see our features on One Kings Lane within days. We're working on some exciting and innovative stuff - social e-commerce, live feeds, gamification, augmented reality on iPads, advanced predictive algorithms, complex and twisted supply chain, humongous data, and much more. The sky's the limit for your creativity and initiative.

Life at One Kings Lane
We're a fairly young company that's growing by leaps and bounds. We move fast and agile, work and play hard, diligent in quality while thinking out-of-the-box.

But more importantly, you'll be joining a world-class team that comes from companies like Amazon, Yammer, Ning, Hotwire, eBay, Live Nation, StumbleUpon, Microsoft, and other prominent startups. If you're from Berkeley or Stanford, you can join in on our friendly office rivalry.
