Job Description

The Algorithms Platform team builds the tools that make deep integration of data science into all areas of our business possible. We are responsible for designing the technical systems that shape and guide how data scientists impact our strategy, operations, and decision making. Because Data Scientists at Stitch Fix are encouraged (and expected!) to rapidly explore ideas and hypotheses, they need to have tools that encourage creativity and support rigorous analysis.

We are looking for a Software Engineer with interest and experience building computational and data handling services and systems for data scientists. You must be interested in designing and building APIs, services, and tools that are logical, elegant, and extensible. You should be excited about fostering best practices for users of the artifacts you create, and enjoy the challenge of trying to discover and invent new, better ways of using data science tools even before the scientists ask for them.


  • Challenge the status quo to propose new and better ways of doing things, and have the rigor to show us why.
  • Have an open mind and discerning attitude to figure out what is really needed rather than simply build that which is asked for.
  • Jump in to solve a problem even when conditions are not optimal.
  • Look holistically at real-world systems and their usage to decide what to improve, replace, and remove.
  • Learn how to make our business better by designing, coding, and educating to influence change.
  • Learn new tools and systems, especially when they are better than the old ones.
  • Deliver early and often because they know that iterating on the “good” is far better than waiting too long for the “perfect.”
  • Work cooperatively as part of a team and in collaboration with business partners.
  • Appreciate a working environment with high ethical standards and a culture of kindness.


  • Minimum of 5 years of strong programming experience, preferably in Python and/or Go.
  • Experience designing public APIs (in a language and/or REST).
  • Experience and comfort building everything on top of AWS.
  • Experience with Linux, and Docker.
  • Some UX development exposure and understanding the spectrum of personal workflows of data scientists.
  • Experience writing technical documentation and teaching people how to use the tools you build.


  • We are a group of bright, kind and goal oriented people. You can be your authentic self here, and are empowered to encourage others to do the same!
  • We are a successful, fast-growing company at the forefront of tech and fashion, redefining retail for the next generation.
  • We are a technologically and data-driven business.
  • We are committed to our clients and connected through our vision of “Transforming the way people find what they love.”
  • We love solving problems, thinking creatively and trying new things.
  • We believe in autonomy & taking initiative.
  • We are challenged, developed and have meaningful impact.
  • We take what we do seriously. We don’t take ourselves seriously.
  • We have a smart, experienced leadership team that wants to do it right & is open to new ideas.
  • We offer competitive compensation packages and comprehensive health benefits.
  • You will be proud to say that you work for Stitch Fix and will know that the work you do brings joy to our clients every day.


At Stitch Fix, we’re about personal styling for everybody and we believe in both a service and a workplace where you can be your best, most authentic self. We’re the first fashion retailer to combine technology and data science with the human instinct of a Stylist to deliver a deeply personalized shopping experience. This novel juxtaposition attracts a highly diverse group of talented people who are both thinkers and doers. All of this results in a simple, powerful offering to our customers and a successful, growing business serving millions of men, women, and kids. We believe we are only scratching the surface on our opportunity, and we’re looking for incredible people like you to help us carry on that trend.
