An Insider's view of Rue Gilt Groupe

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

I really appreciate Rue Gilt Groupe’s work-life balance. Our marketing team norms include limiting lunchtime meetings and after-hours emails, so there’s a distinction between work and personal time. Additionally, RGG’s flexible time-off policy and Summer Fridays mean Associates can take vacation, sick, and personal days as they want or need to.

Senior Analyst, Digital Marketing

What projects are you most excited about?

As a new Rue Gilt Groupe team member, I am really excited to partner with associates and business leaders to take Rue Gilt Groupe's DEI initiatives to the next level!

Dante

Director, Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

Three promotions & six years later, I went from a UX Product Designer to a Group Product Manager building personalization products as part of the Data Science team. Going from Design to Data Science is not a typical path, it took hard work, but the genuine & consistent support from cross-functional leaders opened the doors to new opportunities.

Joelle

Group Product Manager, Data Science

How do your team's ideas influence the company's direction?

The Customer Service team is in the best position to hear what Members want from us, what we can do better and how we can continue to delight them. We listen to their feedback and share that with the rest of the company to continuously improve user experience. By putting the Member first, these insights help all of us collaborate effectively.

Maria

VP, Customer Service

What kinds of technical challenges do you and your team face?

With our business model of limited-time pop-up shops, we experience bursts of high-volume traffic multiple times a day on our websites and mobile apps. We’re making ambitious changes to our tech stack to further scale and modernize while maintaining a fun (and stable!) shopping experience for our Members. It’s a unique and exciting challenge!”
