Job Description

We’re a clothing recommendation service for Men. Our mission is to unlock happiness and confidence in Men by making it easy to dress well. We do this by using a combination of human stylists and sophisticated machine learning algorithms to recommend the perfect items for each of our customers. We do this in a number of ways - current and relevant outfits ideas on the Ideas Feed and personal recommendations and advice via messages.

Your role will be key in supporting our in-house team of stylists, and essential in giving the best customer experience possible.

Currently, our freelance team is made up of experienced personal and editorial stylists, many of whom are prominent names in the fashion industry. Part of your role will be to answer client messages from our customers; this involves excellent written communication that you’ll support with hand-pick recommendations from a choice of thousands of brands. Another key area of responsibility will be to build outfits; they’ll be used to help populate the Ideas Feed with fresh and exciting content. Each outfit will be personalised to each individual customer with the help from our algorithm.

Key responsibilities are : 

  • Represent Thread as one of our talented team of Freelance Stylists
  • Answer client messages from our customers efficiently and eloquently
  • Within client messages, create outfits and clothing recommendations for clients based on their preferences
  • Make adjustments to client profiles, noting styling feedback where necessary
  • Make outfits that are considered and relevant, enabling the Ideas Feed to stay exciting and fresh

The Ideal Candidate

Are you the one? You may be if you have... 

  • Extensive experience working with a USA customer base
  • Excellent writing skills. The right candidate will be able to structure messages clearly and in a manner that delivers a premium service
  • Can demonstrate empathy and emotional intelligence when communicating with clients
  • A perfectionist approach to spelling, grammar and punctuation
  • Impeccable taste with an instinctive eye for what ‘quality’ means
  • Ability to work at speed but with precision and not compromising the quality of the message or outfit
  • Excellent menswear knowledge, including brand awareness, trend awareness, and an understanding of fashion design
  • Strong awareness of the relationship between fit, cuts and body shapes
  • Incredibly organised and reliable. Ability to successfully manage own workflow
  • Ability to adapt to regular updates and changes, and respond productively to feedback
  • Available for 6 months

About Us

At Thread, our mission is to help people to feel happier and more self-confident by making it easy to dress well. We do this using a combination of human stylists and powerful machine learning algorithms to recommend each guy the perfect things just for them—in their size, budget, and style—which they can then buy in one place.

We've raised £25M in financing from some of the world's top investors, including Balderton, H&M and the co-founders of DeepMind and there are over 1 million men in the UK using Thread. Our ambition is to help 100 million people worldwide feeling that bit happier and more self-confident. Most guys want to look good but don't particularly enjoy shopping, so 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.
