Welcome!

Welcome to the Rent the Runway engineering blog! We have a fun team of over 50 engineers here building the platforms and products that power Rent The Runway, and we wanted to share a bit more with the world about what we're up to.

Rent the Runway is a completely unique e-commerce product - we're providing high-value luxury goods with very tight tolerances on shipping times, we're creating a site experience that makes consumers comfortable trusting their most important events to a form of shopping they've never tried before, and we're doing it all at scale as our customer base grows rapidly each day.

With that background, you can watch for us to put up some posts about technical challenges in areas like our one-of-kind fulfillment software, our consumer web experience, and the platforms we're using successfully to power the whole thing, as well as topics like what's exciting in the NYC startup scene, building an engineering culture, and any other fun and geeky thoughts that come to mind. We hope you'll enjoy reading as much as we're excited about posting!
