We are building big data and analytics solutions to revolutionize the shopping experience by enabling retailers to engage proactively with customers through their smartphones at every point along the purchase path.
We were founded by Engineers and are driven by a passion for solving business problems through cutting edge technologies. Our development teams operate in smaller groups within an Agile methodology to foster creativity and collaboration. This is an awesome opportunity for an engineer to gain exposure to Machine Learning, Analytics, Big Data, Search/Recommendation and Mobile technologies in a open source Java environment on the Eastside!
