-- We’re a London-based team of YC-backed entrepreneurs and developers are trying to invent the future of clothes shopping for men by using a combination of algorithms and stylists. We're building one of the world's best technical teams, and are looking for one more back-end engineer to become part of it. If this sounds exciting, read on!
Hi! We're Thread, and we're trying to reinvent retail so guys can dress well without being subjected to the horrors of high street shopping, or having to trawl through millions of items online. We do this by using a clever combination of algorithms and human stylists to give guys the perfect selection of things that will look amazing on them. Our goal is to create the new global default for how men buy clothes.
We’re live, have lots of customers who absolutely love the product, and revenues are growing very quickly.
Building one of the best engineering teams worldwide
One of our ancillary goals is to build one of the best engineering teams and cultures anywhere in the world. This means putting a lot of time into ensuring we only hire truly exceptional developers and creating the best working environment possible.
We’re lucky to already have a number of exceptional developers on the team which you’ll get to work alongside, learn from and no doubt teach. For example, our co-founder/CTO was formerly a lead engineer at Google, our technical architect is a core Debian developer, etc. If you want to work somewhere where you will be learning from some of the best engineers around, this role would be a good fit.
You’ll work everyday with an awesome technology stack consisting of Python, Django, Git, Debian, Redis, jQuery, Jenkins, Postgresql, Gunicorn and many other things.
We place a high value on learning and personal growth so you’ll have time to learn new technologies and attend conferences at the company’s expense. We also host a bi-monthly meetup at our offices for engineers interested in startups called Many to Many.
Beyond this, you will get the chance to demonstrate your deep technical ability by tackling some hard technical challenges including recommendation algorithms and machine learning. We release 20-30 times per week (just push to master) so your cool new features will be live on the site within moments.
Not your average software engineering role
As employee number 12 and engineer number 4, you'll work directly with the founders and the rest of the outstanding technical, design, product and styling team in our office in Shoreditch, London to build the core features that will improve people's wardrobes and in turn their self-confidence and happiness.
You won't merely be handed specs: you'll be in charge of taking ideas from the whiteboard all the way through to them being live, tracking the results, and iterating to make them better. For this reason, this role is only suitable for someone who likes being closely involved in product -- what to build and how it will work as much as the technical implementation itself.
Beyond your engineering team mates, you’ll be working closely with a cross-discipline group of designers, quantitative marketers, operations and stylists. You should love the idea of the whole company working closely together to hit shared goals.
This role is especially suited to someone who wants to found their own startup one day. All our current team are future founders and we view working here as an entrepreneurial bootcamp that will give you the necessary skills and experience to launch your own company in the future.
