MultiThreaded Engineering, UX and Design at Stitch Fix
Stitch Fix is an online personal styling startup in San Francisco, combining art and science to disrupt and redefine the retail industry. We build the tools to run the business, from our customer-facing website and mobile app to unique and innovative tools that power our warehouse, merchandising, and styling teams. We leverage vast amounts of client data to make decisions throughout the company. All of this results in a simple, powerful offering to our customers and a successful, growing business. We believe we are only scratching the surface of our opportunity, and we're looking for incredible people to contribute!
About Engineering
Our team is made up of key engineers who built and scaled organizations like Google, Netflix, eBay, and LivingSocial. We build modern software with modern techniques like TDD, continuous delivery, DevOps, and service-oriented architecture. Cross-functional partnership is deeply meaningful to us and is how we've built up immense trust with the people running the business. We focus on high-value products that solve clearly identified problems but designed in a sustainable way so that value continues to deliver in the long term. In fact, some of our proudest moments come from solving business problems without writing a line of code.
About the Role
Product is a big aspect of what we do. As a Lead Engineer, you will deliver products and solutions?not just features?because you can understand how Stitch Fix works and are trusted to focus your time and efforts where they are needed most. Your drive to dig into complex technology and apply it to the business in clean & innovative ways makes you the trusted advisor to your partners and their teams. You will own projects and influence roadmaps.
You won't do this alone. You will partner with your team and business partners to define product requirements, plans, and deliverables. You will lead and mentor junior team members providing learning and growth opportunities in tech and product through real day-to-day work. You will impact the business in tangible, visible ways that earn you constant high-fives and a seat at the table.
We are looking for Lead Engineers for several of our teams:
Warehouse, Inventory, and Operations
Our warehouse, inventory, and operations team cannot succeed without strong engineers. As a Lead Engineer, you'll work with your team and business partners to propose and build solutions to warehouse process improvement, workforce management, logistics decision-making, and workflow optimization. We have a system that scales linearly with our business, and we need your help to make it logarithmic.
Our Merchandising Tools team builds products to help the Women's and Men's merchandising departments. As a Lead Engineer, you will build tools that cover planning, buying, allocation and new style development. You will also work closely with the data science team dedicated to merchandising, helping to turn their powerful data-driven recommendations into seamless elements of the merchants' workflows. Our aim is to help Stitch Fix merchants be the most innovative and efficient in the retail world.
Styling Platform
The Styling engineering team builds the web platform that our stylists use to style our clients. As a Lead Engineer, you will help build tools that allow our stylists to efficiently choose the perfect items to send to each of our clients. You'll also work closely with our data science team to incorporate recommendation algorithms and run experiments to test possible new ideas and improvements. The styling platform is in many ways the heart of the business, and crucial to our success.
About the Technology
Technologies we use to solve problems include:
Ruby on Rails
Angular, React
We get excited about engineers who have...
Real Technology Experience. You can build anything using the appropriate tools and define design and architecture across multiple, complex systems. You have demonstrated strong proficiency in Ruby on Rails, and help to introduce techniques and tools that are new to Stitch Fix. You can learn from us, and we can learn from you. You have built products that thousands, even millions, of people use every day, and you care deeply about the experience you are delivering.
Product Experience. You proactively identify and gather the proper cross-functional group together to lead projects that leverage technology to solve business problems. Your team members and business partners seek out your opinion on how the product you're building should work. You aren't afraid to dig deep and ask the tough questions of our customers, company, and executive team.
Leadership Style. Once you've got something, we don't have to worry about it. You have a bias toward action and own the projects you are working on while proactively coaching more junior developers and leading the project teams.
Respect for the Craft. You build software sustainably, using modern techniques. You are always looking for more and better ways to write software, and can't wait to share them with your team.
Respect, Empathy, and Humility. You take your work seriously but not yourself. You show everyone respect, regardless of the circumstance.

Don't Be Fooled

The fraudster will send a check to the victim who has accepted a job. The check can be for multiple reasons such as signing bonus, supplies, etc. The victim will be instructed to deposit the check and use the money for any of these reasons and then instructed to send the remaining funds to the fraudster. The check will bounce and the victim is left responsible.
