Those who are familiar with URBN’s fashionable portfolio of brands — Anthropologie & Co., Free People, Urban Outfitters, Nuuly — know that when it comes to design, the parent company is serious. Well, seriously whimsical.
Just as its stores’ dreamy window displays lure in shoppers, URBN’s lush and colorful Navy Yard campus is like catnip for creatively minded tech professionals.
Employees rave about the company’s laid back, ego-free vibes. They say its hierarchy-free structure encourages team members of all levels to contribute and collaborate with equal footing. And, as a brand with creativity at its core, employees can find inspiration at every turn, whether walking past one of its many gardens and living walls, stepping through its bright, textural art installations, or working amidst restored artifacts from the Navy Yard’s days of yore.
With a loyal, tech-savvy customer base, the sky’s the limit for technologists looking to tackle new and inventive ecommerce challenges. Technologists spend time optimizing or building new platforms — such as it did with its new monthly clothing rental subscription brand Nuuly — and work to continually enhance each of the brands’ digital shopping experiences and their engagements with customers.
