Using a blend of art and science, we deliver a deeply personalized shopping service to our customer.

About the Team

The algorithm development platform (algo-dev) team is a small, nimble group of hybrid data science-data platform-software engineers that are focused on enabling data scientists to more easily create, integrate, deploy, manage, and evaluate their models. We have wide latitude to choose how we go about enabling our data scientists; everything that influences how a model is built, how its predictions are served, how the API integrates with the business, to how it’s A/B tested is fair game for us to touch. As a team, we are driven by the thrill of helping our colleagues iterate faster, with less friction, which ultimately increases the velocity at which the business can progress!
