Culture

We set a high bar in determining the ideal candidates for Rent the Runway. Above all else we look for people who think and act like founders. Do you dream big? Do you have relentless curiosity, passion, work ethic, and scrappiness? This is a place where you can grow 10x and accelerate your career. That’s our commitment to our employees.

A set of core values guides how we treat each other and collaborate, laying the foundation for a culture that is fast-paced, entrepreneurial, and rooted in passion, kindness, and positivity. We live by these values – we hire by them, promote them, and celebrate them every day.

Underlying our values are these key tenets:
- Great ideas can come from anywhere.
- Opportunity is yours for the taking.
- Risk and failure are encouraged.
- Embrace and trust the RTR Family.

The idea behind Rent the Runway is inherently fun, and that bleeds into our culture. Our team spirit is no joke. With events like our annual beach day, anniversary party, ski trip, and dozens more throughout the year, our team comes together to let loose and bond. This culminates in our annual Core Values Celebration when we honor core values winners with personalized (and very creative) tributes.
