Shook Got a Makeover!

Hey everyone. I’m really excited right now because there have been some BIG changes to Shook and I get to be the one to tell everyone about them. Yay!

So deep breath in, deep breath out. Here comes all the new things to Shook!

SHOOK LOOKS AWESOME. I’m not one to brag but really, Shook is looking so good right now. You have to see it for yourself. Just go to www.shook.co and you’ll see that the appearance has changed a lot. We changed the colors and the whole design is different and better. Go ahead and take a peek!

The bio page. Since one of Shook’s goals is to make buying and selling a personal experience, we have added a bio section for our users on the settings page. Now you can know a little more about who you are buying from or who you’re selling to.

The sell page. If you thought it was easy before then this will blow your mind. Now all you need is an image, title, description, price and location. Then BOOM you’re done. Just like that.

Closing the deal. All deals will close between the buyer and the seller without any interaction with the website itself.

The price. Wait… what price? Now Shook is 100% free of charge – no fees! No your eyes aren’t tricking you. This is the real deal.

And finally…we heard you England, and we’re listening! We’ve had numerous people tell Shook that they think it’s awesome and they can’t wait until it’s available in the UK for them to use. Well good news to all of our English friends, Shook is now available in the UK! You now have the ability to BUY and SELL on Shook. How awesome is that? 🙂

And remember everyone, we’re still on beta so if you have any problems or requests you can directly contact us on support@shook.co or visit us here:  http://www.shook.co/#feedback

So was that enough changes for you? I sure hope so. Comment below and tell us what you think about the new Shook!

Hey I just met you – It’s time for an introduction

At Shook we have the best staff. There are just four of us but it’s amazing what this small group can do. Well four humans and three dogs…

There’s Niv. He’s one of the co-founders of Shook and a computer programmer. On a personal note, Niv has helped me out a lot since I started working here. We often collaborate and brainstorm ideas together.  His dog’s name is Luna and she is a beautiful husky.

Idan works closely with Niv, because he is also one of the co-fouders of Shook. Idan is a web-developer and ensures that Shook is working properly and is always up-to-date. He taught his dog Shimshon how to do some pretty cute tricks. Idan’s dog may be small, but that doesn’t stop Luna from playing with him!

Nitzan is our designer. He makes amazing graphics which allows our users to enjoy their experience with Shook more. He is the reason Shook looks this good! You can see his designs on Shook as well as the blog. His dog’s name is Laika and she loves to give high-fives! She is the quietest dog in the bunch but is so much fun to be around.


And then there’s me (Jackie), the newest employee at Shook. I am the social content manager; I do things like update the blog, Twitter, Facebook and maintain communication between users. I love working here because I love learning something new everyday. As for now, I’m the only one without a dog, although I am dog-sitting Adele in my apartment for the next month.

 

If you were wondering, there’s usually at least one dog per day in the office. If we’re lucky enough sometimes we have all three. We like to create a fun work environment. We usually have music playing in the background but today was a day where we listened to Call Me Maybe three times! (It’s going to be stuck in my head all day.)

Can you find the dog in this picture? Anyone know which dog this is?
