Spruce Up is a well funded startup backed by premier VCs in NYC, Silicon Valley and Seattle and rapidly growing our early start-up team. The UX Designer owns the design of a new end-to-end shopping experience that is customer and needs based and personalized to each home. It starts from building a simple, but stunning AI and designer powered shopping flow for our customers, and builds on easy-to-use stylist tools that leverage state-of-the art search, personalization and recommendation technologies and workflow optimization.
