HauteLook is a premier online destination offering limited-time, flash sales events, at prices up to 75% off. Every day at 8 a.m. Pacific, the members-only site hosts new sales featuring popular items in women’s and men’s fashion and accessories, beauty, kids’ apparel and toys, and home décor.
In 2011 HauteLook was acquired by Nordstrom and together, in February 2014, they launched Nordstromrack.com, the company’s off-price e-commerce site offering customers on-trend fashion at 30 – 70% off every day. Although Nordstromrack.com and HauteLook are two individual stores on a combined platform, they each offer customers a different experience, sharing many features such as a shared shopping bag and checkout that greatly improve the customer experience.
HauteLook’s technology stack is extremely diverse. The eCommerce team uses a Linux, Apache, MySQL, and PHP stack, along with Memcache and various other open source products. On the mobile side, HauteLook uses both native iOS and Android tools, while on the backend, ERP side, the company uses a lot of the Microsoft technology stack, including the .NET framework and SQL server. All of the company’s software runs on Microsoft Windows server systems.
