Our Mission

It’s 2009.

Millions of Americans tried out 1st generation bidding fee auctions. Most lose money and had a poor experience. After a letdown experience, spending $50 on a pay-to-participate auction site with nothing to show for it, our founder decided to create a fair and honest alternative to bidding fee auctions, where losing bidders don’t have to lose the money they spent bidding.

This is what we changed:

  1. Buy it Now & Get Your Bids Back for Free
    On the 1st generation pay to participate auctions there are many losers and only one winner. Bidders who lose an auction also lose their money.
    DealDash lets you try until you win. When you don't win an auction, you can buy the item for the listed price and get the bids you spent back to your account. We call this "Buy it Now & Get Your Bids Back for Free".
  2. No questions asked 90-day money back guarantee
    Some customers are curious about the deals, but just don’t enjoy the auction model. That’s cool. Unlike many pay to participate auctions, you can first try us for free and see if you like it. We didn’t want to build a business on customers who try us once and then feel that it’s not really for them. That’s why we’ll always honor a full refund of the first purchase for any or no reason at all within 90 days of purchase. Just ask and you’ll get it – no questions asked. That’s The DealDash Promise.

By today, DealDash prides itself on being the longest running and most trusted provider in its category.

DealDash is composed of a small team of around 50 passionate individuals, committed to provide the best service experience to our customers. Being in touch with customers and listening to their concerns is extremely valuable to us. If it wasn’t for the feedback we have received from our customers throughout all these years, we wouldn’t be the company we are now. Ideas such as free shipping and no jumper auctions actually came from our customers. In fact, every employee has a feedback call with a customer, every week. This way we want to make sure that everyone in the company knows how our customers experience our service and we can continue to grow together with them.

Ownership

  • You are the company. Be the change you wish to see take place.
  • Take ownership, take initiative, and take action to create what's missing and to fix what's broken.
  • Results matter, not the method. We trust you to make the right decisions on the way.
  • Don’t be afraid of making mistakes, but own and admit them.

Dare to challenge

  • Be visionary, think beyond boundaries, reinvent the rules.
  • Be open-minded and creative. Try new ideas, embrace the unknown.

  • Question the traditional and conventional ways of doing things. There is probably a smarter way to achieve the results.

Data-driven

  • Don’t let data restrict ideation, have it guide your actions. Be data-driven, not data-obsessed.
  • Data is available for everyone. We are open and transparent. We collaborate and share information.
  • We make decisions transparently based on data. Opinions are valued based on the data that backs them, not subjective views, hierarchy, or status.

Open Positions

Company Culture

We believe in the power of passionate people! Throughout the company’s history, we have placed a lot of efforts in identifying smart and dynamic people, burning for self-improvement and passionate about creating something significant together. This strategy has created a unique community of employees striving to challenge each other to continuously improve and move forward.

We feel that the best way to support our employees in their mission is to give autonomy, ownership and a voice. All our employees are encouraged to satisfy their natural curiosity and grab hold of projects they feel passionate about, we want them to contribute in their own unique way. We strive to foster a culture of free and open communication and trust that our employees will forget about hierarchy and focus on actively participating in our development no matter what their position is.

Decision making is our strength, ensuring a dynamic and fast-paced environment, this has been instrumental in our successful growth. We understand that innovation requires a lot of work, and we will fail from time to time. After all, creating new and innovative solutions should not be easy to achieve.
