ShopJester (fka Just Sales), a Danville, CA-based mobile retail app, secured $600k in seed funding.
Backers included co-founders Bob Pack, a former vice president of sales at NetZero and Roger Smith, former CEO of Silicon Valley Bank, Catherine Chang — a former Corporate Controller at Twitter, Harjit Deo formerly an Intel Executive, and Florian Leibert, the founder of MesoSphere and ex-Twitter data science engineer.
Founded in 2014, ShopJester provides an online shopping platform that allows customers to search products from 32 different retailers including Macy’s, Nordstrom, Victoria’s Secret, Best Buy, and Sports Authority.
The app aggregates the “Sales and New Arrival” items separately from each retailer, allowing users to sort through these offerings. Customers can click a product for more information, and be prompted to similar products.
Working in partnership with Tango Card, it also offers customers rewards points for using the app, and points are tripled when a user makes a purchase.
The app is available on both iOS and Android devices.
