An excerpt from an interview with Code Climate and Codecademy on how to transition from IC to engineering manager and tips for new managers.

Experimentation with resource constraints

When it comes to experimentation, different business models face unique challenges that require thinking beyond the simple randomized control trial to inform decisions critical to the success of companies. At Stitch Fix, we are no exception. Inventory constraints create an undesirable link between observations under different experimental variations. To deal with this, we use the virtual warehouse to split the inventory virtually across variants of an experiment. Furthermore, virtual warehouses also make it easy for us to test different inventory management strategies empirically.

What Color Is This?

We need to know what colors our merch is. But because downstream users include many different people and algorithms, we need to describe colors as a hierarchy, not just one label.
