You collaborate with other engineers, data scientists and domain experts to understand the input data required by our forecasting models, then translate these requirements into automated data pipelines that analyze, clean, transform and monitor data coming from different sources. You are also responsible for building the execution infrastructure for our ML models that provides accurate demand, sales and return rate forecasts to our stakeholders across the company. In this role you will not only grow your engineering skills in a Python/Spark/K8s environment, but also learn how to bring ML into production.

We use a combination of business expertise and cutting-edge machine learning to make pricing decisions at scale and deliver an optimal value proposition to our customers.
