RAILS APPLICATION DEVELOPER –
CHICAGO, IL
Trunk Club (www.trunkclub.com)
is a rapidly growing, apparel startup in the Midwest. Backed by top-tier
venture capital and angel investors, we’ve grown from an employee base of 4 to over
50 in just over a year, and are actively looking to find more amazing people
who’d like to join our team.
Trunk Club has taken off for a number of reasons; traditional
retail just doesn’t seem to work for most men, and almost every guy out there
could use some assistance in the fashion department.   Whether they don’t have time, don’t know
what they are doing, don’t have access to great options, or all three!  Simply put, we’ve built our business around
the idea that there’s a better way for men to buy awesome clothing, and to that
end, we‘ve gone out and built a passionate customer base across the country
that loves our service (5,000 strong and growing)
