Our goal

Reinvent how the world buys clothes.

Come help us.

Most men want to look great but don’t particularly like shopping. We’re aiming to reinvent the experience from the ground up using stylists and clever algorithms.

Traditional shopping is exhausting

Men feel exhausted by crowded shops and overwhelmed by the millions of options online. Often they don’t know what items will suit them the best. The experience of looking through a huge selection of generic clothes - not tailored to you in any way - is hugely frustrating. There has got to be a better way.

Rethinking it for the digital age

We’re rethinking shopping for the digital age by giving every person their own personal shopper to recommend clothes just for them. The stylist will send items that look incredible on them, and is in their budget, size, style, and factor in myriad other preferences. We use real, human stylists, plus clever algorithms to help it scale.

Creating the new normal

We believe if we get this right we can create the new default for how hundreds of millions of people across the world buy their clothes.

Our Company

A team to back up that mission.

We’re aiming to create an enduring, long-term company filled with the most talented people on the planet. We have a lot of work to do, and are looking for people who want to make an impact and help us build a global brand.

Fast growth

Clients love Thread and we’re growing very quickly. This creates heaps of opportunity for talented people to shine, learn a ton, and have a huge impact.

Open and transparent

We believe that people need as much information as possible to make the best decisions each day. That’s why we’re open and transparent about things like revenue numbers, future plans, and the thinking behind each decision.

Personal growth

We’re huge believers in personal growth. We want people who are on a personal journey to become incredible future versions of themselves, and we want to help them on that journey.

High quality execution

We’re focused on A+ quality execution in every area of this business. We don’t settle for mediocrity and are constantly striving to do things better. If you want to be part of a high performing team, then we’re your place.

Top investors

That focus on quality execution extends to our investors. We’re backed by incredible people such as Andrew Jennings (former president of Saks 5th Avenue), William Reeve (founder of LoveFilm), Edgar Bronfman Jr (former owner of Warner Music), Errol Damelin (founder of Wonga), Guy Hipwell (former head of online at Harrods and Liberty), Shakil Khan (founding investor in Spotify), Michael Birch (founder of Bebo), Tom Hulme (design director of IDEO), Miriam Lahage (former vice president of fashion at eBay), start-up accelerator Y Combinator and many others.

“We’re working hard to create one of the best startup teams ever assembled. Hiring incredible people and helping them succeed is our number one priority. We’re only looking for people whose ambition is to be one of the top in their chosen field.”

— Kieran & Ben, co-founders

Process

How we hire

Our goal is to build a lasting, global company, and the only way to do that is to hire an exceptional team. To make it easy for candidates we run a fast, efficient and transparent hiring process. Before we begin recruiting for a new role we make we have clarity on exactly what we’re looking for, and design a bespoke process for each role. It’s just as important to us that you come away from the experience understanding what life would be like here, as it is that we learn about whether you’re right for the role.

Your hiring manager

Each role has a designated hiring manager who will be your main point of contact throughout your interview process at Thread. They are here to help you, and to ensure a smooth process. To begin, they will review your application, and if you seem like a good match, they will email you to arrange a first conversation so we can learn more about your experience and ambitions. If you’re not a fit, we’ll make sure to let you know as quickly as possible.

Remote assessments

We want to give candidates a feel for the reality of the role they're applying for. We design remote exercises that should give you this insight, while also allowing you to demonstratethe key skills required to succeed. If you really enjoy working on the assessment, this is a great sign that you may have found the perfect role for you. These remote assessments form a large part of our process, and we have them from every role— from graduate to c-level.

Interviews

After that, you’ll come in to our office to interview with the hiring manager and a few other teammates, and the conversations will be focused on the role itself. Finally, we’ll arrange an interview round with our founders to focus on culture and values. If successful, we will then make you an offer and you’ll hopefully join us to have the most rewarding and fulfilling professional experience of your career to date!

Always improving

We’re constantly learning and adapting our process, so it may deviate slightly from this. You can ask the hiring manager to explain the process at any point, and they’ll let you know the updated plan. We value self-improvement, so if you have any feedback on your experience with our hiring process, please contact our Head of Talent, Melissa Trahan, on melissa@thread.com with your thoughts.
