We are a clothing company that is setting ever-higher standards for transparency and sustainability within the apparel industry. We believe that technology and thoughtfully-designed products differentiate and strengthen our position within an industry that is ripe for change. To that end, we want to be able to consistently wow and dazzle customers to a level that has yet to be seen, whether in-store with our homegrown Point of Sale or online through our built-from-scratch e-commerce platform.
We have grown revenue at least 50% every single year.
We have a 15 person engineering organization that values product thinking, team building, moving fast, and being nice people.
We sell tangible products that customers pay us real money for.
Our engineering team sits on a broader technology team that encompasses Product Management and Digital Design. These 20 people are in charge of managing, designing and building all the technology that surrounds Everlane, which can often be broken down into four main sub-teams:
• The user-facing e-commerce application • In-store retail applications, including our Point of Sale system and Back of House tooling • The internal Content Management System where fellow coworkers merchandise and editorialize the website • International expansion and payments
We like to move quickly, so we lean into tools that empower that mode of operation. There is no QA team. There are no release cycles. There are no release engineers. Each engineer is responsible for getting their code (via a Slack command to deploy to Heroku) out the door as soon as it has been reviewed in Github.
We can view all challenges stemming from two branches: 1) Drive revenue, and 2) Scale operations.
We built everything from scratch, so nothing is off limits when it comes to building products that drive the business–we don't have to work around an existing platform or be handcuffed by someone else's roadmap. Having that freedom allows us to pull levers that other retailers simply can't, so it's our job to think of how we can differentiate ourselves from the rest of the pack. How do we continue to bridge the gap between online and in-store experiences? How can we ensure a customer has chosen their best possible size? How can we tell the story of sustainability in a way that is meaningful? How can we have the best-in-class online and offline shopping experiences?
But operations are also a huge part of the picture. We are at an incredible point: the business is nearly doubling year-over-year, and our internal teams across the company are growing rapidly. Now is the time where we have to double-down on our tooling to empower our friends across the hallway and around the world. The big questions are: How can we build stable tools that offer flexibility and creativity? How can we leverage a fully in-house ecosystem to make technology our differentiator? Where is the most optimal intersection of human input and computer input? How can customer data help inform, at render time, the visual display of any given page? How can we make our coworkers day-to-day lives easier and more productive? How can we engineer a rocket ship mid-take off?
We built a Point of Sale system that is currently up and running in our two retail stores in San Francisco and New York. The POS allows for all the traditional feature sets that associates and customers would come to expect: scanning barcodes, swiping credit cards, and signing with your finger–all in browser through a React web app.
Whether you’re fresh out of college or a seasoned executive, at Everlane we expect you to go the extra mile and figure out how you can have the greatest impact in your role.
While we expect people to be thoughtful and strategic, to analyze all angles, we also know that real progress only comes from real risk taking. And when smart risks fail? We celebrate those too.
Doing the right thing not only feels better, we think it pays off in the long run. Whether we’re choosing a factory, being transparent to customers about our costs, or making sure our colleague is being treated fairly—there’s a right choice, and we want people to make it.
