We are  the recognized leader in AI-powered pricing and promotions. Global brands and retailers rely on the platform to optimize pricing in response to market conditions and to deliver higher ROI on promotional spend. Our Retail Pricing Suite and Offer Innovation Suite solutions are driving strong margin and sales volume improvements for leading companies such as Coca-Cola, Frito-Lay, Raley’s, and Walgreens. Founded in 2013,  we are headquartered in Palo Alto, California.

Reporting directly to the CTO, you will be at the center of what determines our success as a company. You will analyze the data and develop production code using the newest Data Science and Machine Learning techniques to determine the optimal prices and promotions for major product manufacturers and retailers that sell these products.
