About Rent the Runway:

Rent the Runway is disrupting the $1.7 trillion global fashion industry by introducing clothing rental as a utility in women’s everyday lives and empowering women to feel like their best selves everyday. We have pioneered the Closet in the Cloud and believe that every person globally will soon have a subscription to fashion. Since our launch in late 2009, we have raised $190M from top-tier investors and built one of the most beloved brands on earth. We are proud to be both a profitable and high-growth business, with a loyal 6MM-strong customer base who share the experience of renting as being empowering and smart.

Our 1000+ employees have a revolutionary spirit that permeates our culture. We’ve built - proprietary technology, a one-of-a-kind reverse logistics operation, stores of the future, a viral brand, relationships with hundreds of fashion brands - and we are obsessed with continuing to game change our customer experience. We are also trying to revolutionize entrepreneurship itself - proving that diverse teams produce outsized impact. The Rent the Runway Foundation, which our two co-founders launched together in 2015, helps tens of thousands of female entrepreneurs build and scale their own businesses with the mission of founders more clearly representing the demographics of this country.

Position Purpose:

Ours isn’t just a store….it’s the Dream Closet of the website brought to life.  Instead of looking like a traditional store with mannequins and racks, ours will look like a closet stocked with bountiful options, as if to convey to the shopper that this is their actual fantasy closet, and they can take what they want from it.  Likewise, it won’t function like a traditional store – shoppers can sign up for a fitting room, connect to see more styles online, and pick up a last minute rental.
