I just got back home to Chicago on Saturday, and I arrived to see the latest issue of Inc. Magazine waiting for me on the kitchen counter. It’s a big day for me because it’s the Inc. 500 issue where they list the 500 fastest growing private companies in the United States. It’s my absolute favorite tool for finding new companies to feature, which is why we’re going to take a look at ModCloth today. They came in at #2 on the list with 17,191% growth over the past three years to get to over $15 million in revenue. And all of that growth has been “built on a foundation of love for vintage and retro clothing.” The company, which is based in both San Francisco and Pittsburgh, was started by high school sweethearts Eric Koger and Susan Gregg Koger, and they aim to “provide a fun and engaging shopping atmosphere” for their customers by using social media to interact with them. ModCloth is big on democracy, so customers actually get some say in the direction the company’s buyers take.
The tough thing about being an indie brand is that it becomes difficult to maintain your image as you grow—especially when it’s at a 17,191% rate. By constantly including customers in their processes, working closely with bloggers, and engaging more than 100 indie designers, ModCloth is building a foundation that ensures that they’ll be able to effectively grow an indie brand. Another key part of their growth plan has to do with hiring. Right now their Careers page gives a nice rundown of what it’s like to work at ModCloth and also includes a link to their current openings. They have more than two dozen positions posted right now, and quite a few seem suitable for new or recent grads. These include Business Data Analyst (San Francisco and Pittsburgh), Customer Care Specialist (Pittsburgh), Interaction Designer (San Francisco and Pittsburgh), Accessory Photographer (Pittsburgh), Associate Buyer/Designer Relations Associate (Los Angeles), Data Systems Analyst (Pittsburgh), Agile Rails Developer (San Francisco), QA Analyst (San Francisco), and Software Engineer (Pittsburgh). As you can see, the opportunities are quite varied so give them a good look.
