Our Positions

Engineering Team

From the beginning, great engineering has been core to Proper Cloth. Our ecommerce platform is built from the ground up to support totally custom, made-to-order clothing. We also build tools to automate and streamline business operations, and to analyze data for smarter decision-making. We're a small, core team building and continuously releasing new features and updates every day. We’re looking for extremely capable engineers that bring new expertise and ideas to the table.

Many ecommerce platforms exist. What makes Proper Cloth’s unique is that it’s built from the ground up to support totally custom, made-to-order clothing. It’s this element of custom that makes what we’re building so powerful: we can quite literally produce a shirt in any style and any size. Quickly and cost effectively. Perfect fit becomes a reality and user experiences become truly personalized. Through it all we generate and collect data about fit and style preferences that other ecommerce companies can only dream of. We’ve only just begun to scratch the surface of what’s possible.

With so many options, custom clothing can easily become overwhelming. It takes an intuitive, multi-layered front-end design to keep it simple and user friendly for novices, yet flexible for experts. Complex, data powered algorithms make custom sizing a snap. Sophisticated business process flows enable customers to help themselves without assistance. Powerful backend systems keep our operations team lean. Extensive use of data analytics and optimization help us continuously refine and improve our marketing, user experience and even physical products.

Some of the features and tools we’ve built include:

  • Custom shirt configurator
  • Custom size prediction algorithms
  • Wishlist management
  • Custom size management
  • Custom shopping cart and checkout
  • Custom CRM and CMS
  • Order management tools
  • Fraud detection
  • Business analytics tools
  • Continuous feedback systems

Some of the technologies we currently leverage include:

  • Object oriented PHP with ADOdb abstraction layer
  • MySQL
  • Linux based server admin
  • GitHub
  • AWS
  • Stripe and Paypal payment processing
  • LESS CSS Framework
  • Node, jQuery, Vue.js
