Did you know that Fashion is the second most polluting industry in the world after Energy?
We are a venture-backed fashion tech company ($20M+ raised) that eliminates the addiction to fast fashion and waste by sourcing the best pre-owned designer items and delivering them to customers in a curated, highly personalized monthly box.
To do this, we have to solve complex personalization problems and combine the best of human and machine. The result? Unique items delivered to customers at up to 90% off retail, and new life given to amazing fashion that would otherwise be wasted.
So how does it work?
Every month, a stylist uses our software to curate 5 items, which are shipped for customers to conveniently try on at home, purchase what they like and return the rest. Additionally, box customers, as well as anybody else, can sell us items that no longer bring them joy and get paid up front.
Our team is globally distributed, our fulfillment center is based in New Jersey, and our customers are all US based. We are looking for a new QA tester to join our growing team working remotely full-time (9 AM - 5 PM EST).
