In a time-starved world where shopping often feels overwhelming, our business connects customers to clothes they love. Whether it’s helping someone dress for success at a new job or taking the stress out of packing for a family vacation, we fix clients’ closets – and they love us for it!

We’ve built unique, innovative software for merchandising, warehouse and inventory management, remote styling, and logistics. We leverage vast amounts of client data to make decisions throughout the company. All of this results in a simple, powerful offering to our clients and a very successful business.

  • Providing technical leadership and coaching for a new team excites and motivates you.
  • You enjoy identifying build/testing bottlenecks and implementing data-driven solutions and improvements using both CI-native and CI-non-native telemetry tools such as Datadog, New Relic, or similar.
  • You are motivated by opportunities to shift solutions to the infrastructure level using tools that quickly and efficiently give build and testing feedback.
  • You have a passion for simplifying and automating build and test tasks.
  • You have developer empathy and want to improve developers’ lives.
