Paddle8 is the auction house for the 21st-century collector. We give a global community of passionate collectors unprecedented access to online auctions of high-caliber inventory. We’ve streamlined the collecting experience, combining the excitement and expertise of an auction house with innovative technology and a global perspective. Paddle8's online auctions showcase a dynamic range of art, collectibles, and luxury goods—all vetted by trusted specialists. We partner with celebrated cultural institutions and international tastemakers to help collectors refine their tastes, discover new passions, and fulfill their philanthropic pursuits. We have a global team of specialists who source extraordinary inventory for our auctions, all of which are organized around compelling themes or curated by notable cultural figures. Paddle8 has also collaborated with more than 200 museums or foundations to open up their benefit auctions to our global community of collectors, greatly expanding each organization's fundraising goals while simultaneously providing access to blue-chip works of art and design.
Founded in 2011, we're a team of art and tech professionals with offices in New York (headquarters), L.A., and London. We are funded by a diverse group of investors, including Mousse Partners, Founder Collective, Winklevoss Capital, and individual investors including art-world insiders Damien Hirst, Jay Jopling, and the Mellon family.
As Paddle8 expands its inventory categories and geographies, and as we continue to pioneer innovative technological and operational solutions to collecting online, we are seeking well-qualified candidates to join our team.
