I’m a big fan of buying stuff online, so I’m shocked when some of my friends tell me that they still buy everything at real brick and mortar stores. It’s so old fashioned. It used to be just books and electronics, but over the past years I’ve even started buying clothes and even shoes online. Companies like Bonobos and Gilt Groupe make online clothes shopping super easy, but they’re relative newcomers compared to Bluefly, which was was founded in 1998 in New York City. They’ve made a name for themselves by offering high end fashion brands at great values, and they’re as much a fashion company as they are an e-commerce company. Bluefly is pretty small—under 100 employees—considering that the company’s stock is publicly traded on the NASDAQ, but that’s not surprising considering that they made it through the late 90s and early 2000s.
I’ve never bought anything from Bluefly, but I’ve known of them for a long time. They don’t provide a lot of background info on their About page, but if you do a little Google searching you can get their story from places like Wikipedia and Google Finance. Another good way to get to know Bluefly is to read through some of the press coverage that they’ve received, which you can find on the company’s About page. If you like what you see and are excited at the prospect of a career at the crossroads of fashion and e-commerce, then you’ll want to move on to Bluefly’s Jobs page. Right now they’re looking for a Merchandising Assistant, a Web Designer, a Domestic Inventory Control Associate, and a Data Warehouse Developer. There’s some pretty good variety here, so give Bluefly a nice long look.
