Job
Description
At the moment, the company has a huge database of information from users that is latent. From measurements to colour and style preferences, the company uses an algorithm that pulls a selection of clothing that is then curated by a stylist for the member. The member receives new items every month and has the option to purchase clothing he/she enjoys the most. At this point, the company does not sound any different from other online stylist companies however the unique point is the collection of feedback that members give on each item of clothing. The value of this feedback for clothing companies but also in fine-tuning recommendations for users is a huge asset the company would like to leverage by hiring a talented data scientist.
