The Role: VP, Technology Infrastructure

The VP of Technology Infrastructure is responsible for architecting, operating, and securing the technology infrastructure for Rue Gilt Groupe, a $1B e-commerce company. You will be responsible for our computer, storage and network infrastructure, technology support function and cybersecurity. Reporting directly  to our Chief Technology Officer, you will serve as a full partner in setting the technology direction for the enterprise and driving forward with our technology transformation.  

For the right candidate, this is a career-defining opportunity to shape the future of the Rue Gilt Groupe business and set the bar in fashion e-commerce. The VP, Technology Infrastructure role is based in either our Boston, MA HQ or New York City office with a flexible hybrid work schedule. 

What You’ll Do:

Your scope of responsibility includes Cloud infrastructure, Database, DevOps, On-prem IT and Network Ops, Technology Support Services (TSS), and Cyber Security Operations. Your team is Boston-centric, but you will also have associates in remote locations. Your organization will support RGG operations in our Boston HQ, New York office, SoCal office, Kentucky fulfillment center, Dublin Tech center as well as associates in remote locations.  

  • Organizational Leadership: You’ll inspire, empower and lead a lean and efficient team with a leadership style that is well aligned with RGG company values, and our Technology culture of Accountability, Alignment and Transparency.

  • Technology Strategy and Vision. You’ll establish our Infrastructure vision and roadmap, built upon our cloud-first technology platform. You’ll define and drive innovation and transformational initiatives, aligning key stakeholders with a compelling vision as well as team success with the overall success of our business’ operational and financial goals. 

  • Relationship Building and Influence: You’ll build strong relationships with senior stakeholders across our business as well as with strategic vendor partners. You will establish strong working relationships with senior Product and Engineering leadership in the Technology organization. As a VP, you are a key leader in a fashion e-commerce business, beyond the technical domain expertise you will bring to the position. You have the executive communication skills to succinctly inform and influence senior executives and are comfortable operating in a business that has entrepreneurial roots, with a sharp eye on expenses and the bottom line.

  • Operational Excellence. We expect, and achieve, near 100% uptime of our e-commerce sites and apps. Your leadership promotes a world-class operational culture and keeps our platform highly available, secure, and operating at peak efficiency. You’ll ensure performance and agility without compromising our ability to deploy code quickly, securely, and reliably from laptops to production. You have extensive experience running the business of technology and are adept with budgets, contracts and investment cases. As RGG is very data-driven, you will lead your teams’ development and publication of essential KPIs and management dashboards. 

  • Cybersecurity: You are responsible for our Cybersecurity team and our security posture. Your SecOps team establishes appropriate policies and protocols for cybersecurity; implements our security measures to prevent, detect or mitigate attacks; executes the necessary auditing and testing of our capabilities; leads the technology side of our compliance efforts.

About You:

At Rue Gilt Groupe, diversity enriches our passion, collaboration, kindness, and innovation. We’re committed to fostering an inclusive environment where every Associate is empowered to learn, grow, and bring their full self to work. Even if you don't check off every qualification in the job description, that's okay. We encourage you to apply to any role that excites you and sparks delight! We can't wait to learn more about you.

  • Technical Leadership. You have deep knowledge of cloud-based infrastructure, database operations, network and cyber security.  You define and realize operational standards for production software and systems, as well as drive our DevOps culture to deploy code quickly and reliably. You are an SME on cybersecurity, and are comfortable developing and presenting our security posture to executives, board members and strategic partners. Ideally, you have experience in online retail or other consumer-facing e-commerce businesses. 

  • Additional areas of experience we would like to see include:

    • Understanding of ITIL and related frameworks
    • Multi-cloud experience (AWS, Google, Azure)
    • Managing operating in diverse environments that can include custom in-house technologies (React, Swift, Python); an evolving architecture moving from monolith to micro-services and components; multiple SaaS and packaged software providers.
    • Network infrastructure and tooling (Cisco, Meraki)
    • Site build-outs and site to site integration
    • Vendor and contract management for managed services, licensing, and delivery
    • IT security vendor relationships, strategic solutions and procurements

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 the current Chairperson of Rue Gilt Groupe’s Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Groupe, I am proud to be part of RGG’s commitment to DEI awareness. We are creating avenues for actionable change for our business and Associates through cross-departmental collaborative efforts that amplify diverse voices and perspectives.


TV Merchandising Assistant

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.


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.


VP, Customer Service

What’s the vibe like in the office?

I love how passionate and engaged everyone is in their work. It's really special and refreshing to see the thoughtfulness and care that shines through in the output of everyone's day-to-day jobs.
