For apparel and shoes (“softlines”), the convenience, selection, and price benefits of shopping online have yet to be fully realized. Today the online shopper's largest friction is evaluating fit and size, and other details.

Our team’s ultimate goal is for customers to easily discover items they will like and to get the right size on the first try: across the globe, on laptops and mobile, etc. Our technical challenges involve applied science, back-end software engineering, and user interface development. We need to build beautiful, intuitive, responsive user interfaces that our customers will use to discover items, evaluate fit and refine our understanding of their tastes.

As a member of the team, you can have a huge impact on everything from the functionality we deliver for our customers, to the architecture of our systems, to the algorithms we employ, to the culture we build.
