We’re approaching fashion like scientists, analyzing data from as many sources as we can to get a clear picture of what’s in style.  We use that to produce our own collections of products and sell online.
Yes: we’re producing and selling our own products, and proud of it.  We already have prototypes in the door
Our 100k+ follower audience tells us every day they love our style and can’t wait to buy our products.
You’d be engineer #1 on a small team, working directly with the the founders.  We’re technical and have built web apps with tens of millions of active users, and have a background in venture capital.
We use Ruby, Rails, MySQL, and most of the social APIs.  As our data volume scales up we’ll be exploring NoSQL technologies.
Salary, equity, and benefits are all *very* competitive — if you’re adventurous and entrepreneurial this is the time to join.  We want generalist engineers who love shipping products people love and are comfortable at all levels of the stack.
