About the Team

At Stitch Fix, our data science team combines machine learning with expert human judgment to generate innovative recommendations and insights that transform how our clients discover what they love. We believe in a curiosity-driven culture where members have the autonomy to deliver impact through end-to-end, full-stack product development and ownership. The diversity of the problems that we work on and the data-rich environment of our business make it possible, even essential, to bring the tools of multiple disciplines to bear on our hardest problems.
