Stitch Fix – Why Work With Us?


Stitch Fix was founded in 2011 by Katrina Lake. After consulting for retailers and having a fashionable sister as her personal stylist, she dreamed up the idea while attending Harvard Business School. Katrina believed a new retail concept could help busy women discover and explore their personal style, and make it easy to find figure-flattering clothing. Inspired to help women look and feel their best, she shipped the very first Stitch Fix packages out of her apartment on 41 Hawthorn Street in Cambridge, MA.

The secret to Stitch Fix’s success has been a balance of art and science. Our personal stylists are armed with the best tools and technology to help them hand-select clothing and accessories that fit your lifestyle and body shape. Some of the pieces we recommend come from tiny jewelry vendors in San Francisco, others from the same vendors you’d find at larger department stores; and some are exclusive to Stitch Fix, designed based on knowledge from our clients. What’s more, we’re able to use your feedback to create a more customized and delightful retail experience with every single delivery. It’s like a trusted friend shopping for you – without the hassles of a mall.

So ‘Why Stitch Fix?’: In addition to all of our wonderful benefits and perks, no matter what department you work within Stitch Fix, everyone makes an impact on improving our service that helps our clients be their best selves.

 

We are a team of bright, kind, goal-oriented individuals who care deeply about achieving the exceptional. We know our individual strengths, but believe that we are strongest together. Our company is transforming the retail experience as we know it, and we are as dedicated to our people as we are to our clients.

Our mission is to inspire our people to be their best selves. We strive to generate a culture that is authentic and flexible through the embodiment of our core values:

  1. Partnership: We are better together
  2. Integrity: We tell the truth
  3. Innovation: We dare to be novel in big and small ways
  4. Responsibility: We create our future

We have a feedback driven culture, where feedback is given in real time, with real thought. Feedback to us is a capability essential to achieving our client and people mission. It is what we value, expect, and reward.

Being on the Engineering team at Stitch Fix means partnering closely with teams across all of Stitch Fix on projects and building products that help impact each part of our business. Conversations with our business partners don’t start with a solution, they start with asking what is the problem we’re trying to solve?

Our engineers have built unique, innovative software for merchandising, warehouse and inventory management, remote styling, and logistics. They like to move quickly and ship lots of code, but in a considered way. Stitch Fix engineers believe in using whatever tools, processes, and products are pragmatic and get the job done.

Our engineers believe that they are only scratching the surface of our opportunity, and we’re looking for incredible people to contribute!

    Pros

    Stitchfix allows you to be yourself. Everyone here wants to be here and knows what it takes to run a successful business. Throughout my time I have seen many people come in from the big name tech companies after being burnt out. StitchFix knows not to push you across the line and respects your personal time.

    Cons

    Although it is getting much better, it is somewhat difficult to be promoted from within. The leveling rubric is a bit arbitrary as compared to other tech companies.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Stitch Fix.

    Interview

    Short. The phone screener didn't know what she was talking about. The first thing she said was "I'm gonna have you walk me through your resume..." followed by an awkward pause. It was hard to tell if it was a question to answer, or if she was going to follow up with a specific question. It was awful and uncomfortable!
