About Rue La La

Have massive impact

At Rue La La, you have the rare opportunity to have massive impact. We are at a key inflection point. Having built a profitable retail business generating $500M in annual revenue and having established a brand that inspires confidence in 15M users, Rue is now investing substantial resources to leverage technology to put our data to good use. It’s the type of situation where a single person in the right role enables us to fire up completely new strategic objectives.

As an engineering lead you will work with product owners to drive key initiatives across the company. As a mobile engineer you will take our award-winning apps to the next level as we more deeply understand how our users interact and respond. As a DevOps engineer you will lead us from quick yet scheduled zero-downtime deploys to continuous deployment nirvana. And no matter what your speciality, you will both benefit from the expertise of our veterans and impart your own wisdom upon a growing group of excited and capable junior engineers.

Bet big on Technology

Nowhere else at Rue besides Technology can you make a single change and create such massive waves. We have incredibly loyal customers, healthy margins, and a lean operating budget. We’ve built our entire business with minimum marketing spend, all through word of mouth. Technology will unlock big opportunities for growth, so that we can pour fuel on the fire and scale.

A startup within a thriving company

In 2015, we are living and breathing agile, empowering small cross-functional teams to execute and rapidly get code to production to learn and iterate. At Rue, we have the resources and support for you to be successful, along with much green field ahead for you to drive innovatation.
