Can we hack fashion? Inporia (YC W11) thinks so
on Feb 16, 2012 | hide
Fashion may be one of the last industries you'd think of disrupting with technology, but we believe we're onto something.

We are looking to add another software engineer to our small but expert team. You'll spend most of your time coding in javascript (coffeescript) and rails, but our stack also includes python, scala and clojure. You'll be self-motivated and able to figure out the 'right' thing to do without being told. You're entrepreneurial-minded and probably want to start your own company someday (and we'll help mentor you and introduce you to the right people so you can do so).

We're probably the only company with Stanford grads, Google alumni, and someone who worked at Chanel. You don't necessarily need to be fashionable, but you should understand how important fashion is to most people in the world (it helps people express who they uniquely are, and feel confident and good about themselves).

The founders are experienced entrepreneurs, having previously sold companies to Google and Disney, and have been backed by YC twice. The team is small and hand picked for precise execution, and you'll be joining at the earliest stage. In addition to Y Combinator we have all-star investors including Ron Conway, 500 Startups, NEA and others.

We are based in San Francisco and New York, and offer excellent salaries, equity and full benefits.

Interested? Drop us an email at hackers@inporia.com. Tell us about yourself and why you'd be a good fit. Links to your github account or other examples of your work will greatly help your application. We are picky about who we hire because we trust everyone on our team to own the entire product and 'do the right thing'.
