Perfil da Empresa

E-Like helps brands increase sales and strengthen relationships via social commerce. Brazil’s e-commerce market has enjoyed explosive growth and it is expected to become the 4th largest in the world over the next few years. E-Like created Brazil’s first multi-brand social commerce platform and marketplace, Meu Shopping. The company was founded by successful Brazilian entrepreneurs with backgrounds in retail, technology and marketing. Meu Shopping’s innovative approach to e-commerce led Intel Capital to invest in the company and Facebook to recognize it as the leader in social commerce in Brazil. E-Like is a fast-paced startup environment, soon to set up offices abroad, looking for flexible and experienced leaders. If this sounds like you, we'd love to talk to you.
