Ready for the most memorable experience of your professional career (if we do say so ourselves)? Then join us at Rue La La. Rue burst onto the scene in 2008, disrupting retail with our high-end, flash-sale model. Today, we’re an established company, but we still have that start-up spark. And we use it to find new ways to engage, inspire, and surprise our more than 15 million loyal Members with an unmatched consumer experience. We’re also applying that energy to our next big task: rewriting the rules around e-commerce and content. At Rue, we think true style is about more than what we sell. (Although we can’t get enough of that either.) Our day-to-day style? Just as important. Whether we’re in our Boston, Kentucky, or New York office, we lead by example. We strive to be tenacious, decisive, passionate, collaborative, innovative, and kind. Every day. We grab coffee and brainstorm new ways to delight our Members. Volunteer on- and off-hours together. And plan some serious birthday surprises for our coworkers, because nothing sparks creativity like a breakfast granola buffet or an afternoon slice of cake. .
