Our Teams

Personal Styling

This is the central part of our platform where technology, merchandise, stylists, and customers all come together.

The Personal Styling team's mission is to help unite everything to ensure the best possible Fixes for our customers.

Merchandising

Our buyers and merch planners manage a wide variety of styles, working with a team of allocators keeping each warehouse full of great inventory. This allows our data scientists to arm our stylists with something for every one of our customers.

The Merchandising team is building next-generation tools to keep our buyers and merchandise pipeline full of a wide variety of inventory to arm our stylists (and algorithms).

Warehouse

Every day, our warehouses fill with hundreds of people, each making sure thousands of items get shipped to, and received back from, our happy customers.

Our Warehouse & Logistics team is crafting bespoke tools from laptops, barcode scanners, carts, and web-applications to make our warehouse associates efficient & effective.

Client Experience

From scheduling a Fix on their phone, to opening the box when it arrives, we want every interaction with a customer to feel special.

Our Customer Experience team is designing products and experiences to allow every customer to get the most out of Stitch Fix.

Our Tools

Ruby on Rails

We use the best parts of Rails 4.2 and Ruby 2.2 to eliminate friction between problem and solution.

PostgreSQL

Our data is our most valuable asset, and Postgres keeps it clean, manageable, and available.

RabbitMQ

RabbitMQ keeps our application loosely coupled so they can evolve independently but without duplicating code.

Slack, BlueJeans, Lifesize, AND Screenhero

You’ll never feel alone on our nationwide team.

Something New?

Facing a problem our toolset doesn’t solve? Try out something new—we’re always looking to solve problems better and faster.
