The bricks and mortar retail shopping experience is designed for women. Men suffer through it because they don't have a choice. Bonobos is ready to provide an alternative. We're looking a front-end developer that is excited about using technology to create something never seen before in an otherwise stagnant category.
Bonobos is creating a transformative men's apparel brand in two ways: awesome products and awesome technology. We have strong views on how to create classic, well-designed men's clothing. We don't think that men like shopping. So we're building a technology-enabled men's brand that keeps our customers out of retail stores.
We have big ideas about the future of ecommerce. We're not putting a new skin on the same old website. We're about to blaze new territory in the way consumer and the brand interact and we need a superstar to play a key role in getting us there.
