The Lobby ( – a new shopping concierge service that brings up-and-coming fashion brands (think Outdoor Voices, Amour Vert and Sézane) to customers at their offices to try on before they buy – is looking to hire our first Full Stack Engineer.

A bit about the opportunity…

Since our company sits at the intersection of retail, data and operations/logistics, you will have the opportunity to work on all sorts of interesting and challenging projects across the business, including:

  • Making our user experiences beautiful and delightful across devices and platforms.
  • Working on our proprietary recommendation and machine learning algorithms
  • Optimizing logistics
  • Developing our in-house order management system

As an early employee and our first full-stack engineer (reporting directly to CTO), the role is ideal for someone who is a self starter and excited to work directly with product and operations and make an impact on the product and business.

This opportunity also comes with the potential to turn into a more leadership role as we (quickly) grow the engineering team next year.

That plus the computer and accessories of your choosing. We know the little things really matter on a day-to-day basis. :)
