Company description.

At Virtusize, we help consumers purchase clothes that they will truly love.

At the core of our business is a size recommendation service — that allows millions of users to visualize size data and make comparisons with items they already own. We provide data services for the largest fashion companies across Asia and have been doing so since 2013. We are a Forbes Japan Top 200 startup backed by VCs such as D4V, Yahoo Japan, and more.

We are now looking for the second member of our Data Science team to play a key role in helping Virtusize becoming the standard solution for size and fit in the Asian online fashion industry and beyond.

You will be working alongside an inspiring cross-functional team and will be part of our product lifecycle, including sprint plannings, retrospectives and product reviews.
