On her LinkedIn account, Fleiss also listed herself as Co-Founder of the company and gave this description for the new endeavor: “Making shopping magical via one-to-one personalization, AI, and machine learning. Code eight is the first portfolio company within Store No 8, an incubator backed by Walmart that is shaping the future of commerce. We are stealth mode, so you won't find much out there on us yet, but watch out world, here we come!”

Prior to this position, Fleiss served as the Head of Business Development at the online fashion rental company she co-founded, Rent the Runway. Chain Store Age reported that Fleiss’ new role under Walmart’s tutelage will draw from her relevant previous experience that contributed to Rent the Runway’s rapid growth trajectory.
