At Stitch Fix, our goal is to help our customers look great and feel great about themselves by revolutionizing how people shop. 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. We believe we are only scratching the surface of our opportunity, and we’re looking for incredible people to contribute!
Stitch Fix’s Fix Requests engineering team is hiring for empathetic, curious engineers to join our growing team. We build software – both customer-facing & backend – that empowers clients to interact with their stylists, so that our clients can find clothing they love in their Fixes. We’re motivated by our ability to improve clients’ interactions with Stitch Fix & measure the impact of our work on the business. We are a distributed team that collaborates & pair-programs across 3 time-zones, and we love building relationships that enable everyone to learn & ask questions.
