Life at Bolt

Our Story

We’re on a mission to democratize commerce

2010

Pre-Bolt

Prior to founding Bolt, our CEO, Ryan, spent years familiarizing himself with online checkout from the inside-out. Starting in high school, Ryan spent six years building ecommerce sites for businesses of all sizes — from small mom and pop shops to large corporations. It was during this time that he experienced first-hand the shortcomings of the online commerce space, which inspired him to design a better alternative.

2012

At Stanford

While enrolled in Stanford’s Computer Science program, Ryan co-founded the Stanford Bitcoin Group, spearheading research into crypto-currencies, blockchain technologies, and alternative financial systems.

Early 2014

Founding Bolt

Bolt was founded in early 2014, with a vision to set a new standard for ecommerce.

mid-2016

Bolt Launch

A scrappy, yet mighty team of 10 worked tirelessly for 2 years building the plumbing and middleware to create V1 of Bolt’s checkout solution.

Bolt officially launched its first merchant with just the payment step.

2016-2020

Our Growth

Bolt’s product and team has grown by leaps and bounds — raising $215M in funding and growing by over 200 team members and 250+ retailers.

In the process, we've also built an award-winning culture and workplace. Our team is recognized by Inc., Built In, Forbes, Fortune and others.
