About thredUP

thredUP is the world’s largest fashion resale platform, inspiring a new generation to think secondhand first. The company has spent the past 10 years reinventing resale, building a marketplace and infrastructure now poised to power the $50B resale economy and usher in a more sustainable fashion future. Millions of consumers use thredUP as the easiest way to sell their clothes and shop over 35,000 brands at up to 90% off — online, in stores or via “try-before-you-buy” Goody Boxes. Backed by world-class investors, thredUP designed a resale engine that has redistributed nearly 100 million unique garments from closets across America and is now powering resale for the broader fashion industry via its Resale-As-A-Service (RAAS) platform.

  • Uncover insights in our vast repository of raw data and provide tactical guidance on how to accelerate the flow of inventory through our platform
  • Participate in our knowledge-sharing culture by spreading best practices and learnings from prior experiences, helping the entire team level up

  • At least 3 years of experience in data science or software engineering roles developing production machine learning systems
  • Masters or PhD in a relevant discipline, or the equivalent in experience and evidence of exceptional ability
  • Ability to effectively work with business leads; strong cross-functional communication skills that help push projects forward
  • Encourage the development of new collaborations
  • Innate curiosity and drive to find insights that unlock new growth or efficiency - you can’t help but dig in and seek the truth
  • Well-rounded skill set in statistics, machine learning, production software development, and project management
  • Advanced knowledge of SQL and Python, and experience writing code in a collaborative environment

What We Offer

  • The opportunity to make a massive impact & influence outcomes for our business and customers alongside passionate coworkers
  • Autonomy. The ability to make, own, and carry out decisions
  • Competitive salary, equity and full benefits (health/dental/vision insurance & 401k)
