Threadflip is an upstart young company aiming to be the world’s first never-ending closet for women. We are building a social marketplace that changes the way our users shop for clothes and style their wardrobes, creating a peer-to-peer shopping experience that is delightful, collaborative and inspirational, as well as efficient and cost-effective. The concept is simple; women create a fashion profile, upload photos of clothes they no longer wear and start flipping for new items.
More about us
Currently we are in limited beta. We just closed a large seed round with an impressive list of investors and advisors including First Round Capital, Baseline Ventures, Slow Ventures, Andreessen Horowitz and Greylock Discovery Fund.
  • We are super early stage, so you can say you worked here before we went mainstream. Our product is pretty bleeding edge, actually, you’ve probably never heard of it.
  • We are a lean, fast-paced and agile startup in the the very early stages of development, so there is a lot of room for impact: in our code, our product, our culture — you name it. You may pitch an idea, and then implement it a week later, or spec out a feature in the morning and push your code to production in the evening.
  • We’re data-driven, so if you’re a metrics geek, we’ll love you all the more. You can look forward to major geeking out on our product and growth metrics with folks like Eric Ries, author of The Lean Startup and one of our awesome advisors.
  • We packed the kitchen sink to the edge and threw it at the code: edge Rails, Haml, Sass, Coffeescript, and a Gemfile packed with goodies. Because let’s be honest: the future is here. We’re tired of waiting for jet packs and hover cars.
  • We’re building a new discovery model which gives us plenty of hard engineering problems to tackle everything from collaborative filtering to semantic search. And If big data gets you going, we’ve got great challenges ahead for you to help us knock out.
  • Our entire team is product-focused, so our passion for improving the product bleeds into the codebase. We’re committed to building a simple, slick and social user experience.
  • The founding team is seasoned. We understand viral growth, social product design and, above all, how to build products that users love.
A little about you
We’re seeking a versatile Software Engineer to create magical flipping experiences for our users. Our ideal candidate is that rare combination of user champion and engineering generalist, with strong product vision and deep technical chops.
  • You let your game — or code — do the talking, not your ego. If actions speak louder than words, you’re downright deafening.
  • You are not locked into a certain language or framework — you thrive off of picking up new technology and just want to build a smart product.
  • You have excellent full-stack capabilities and are not afraid to jump between writing migrations, pushing open source code, or writing delightful Javascript. “It can’t be done” doesn’t exist in your lexicon. All you see are green lights and go signs, unless you broke the deploy.
  • You feel like all your years of software development experience have been preparing you for something great, and you’re hungry enough to take the leap.
