About Floyd

Floyd is changing the way people buy and engage with furniture. Our products are built around the idea that well designed furniture should be accessible, long lasting, and ship to your door (not to mention beautiful!).

Technology drives every part of the business and is critical for us in becoming a market leader. Floyd is a venture-backed company with over $6m raised to date.

  • QA protocols for frontend bug-fixing
  • Write meaningful code that is easy to maintain
