Our Story

Searchspring was founded in 2007 in Colorado Springs with a singular vision: creating better shopping experiences in an increasingly online world. Nearly two decades later, with a team that spans the globe, we’re still united behind that mission.



When we began, our founders anticipated the shift in consumer preferences away from the generic, utilitarian approaches of the behemoths towards a more personalized, human-centric, and satisfying shopping experience. Turns out, they were right.

So what has changed? A bigger (and more powerful) tech stack joined by a much bigger (and more powerful) team of talented people helping us make progress all along the way.
