They offer an innovative retail solution; an alternative to shopping through websites and apps and streamlines the process of finding the right product to fit a consumer's needs. They believe their solutions are the future of the mobile & ecommerce marketplace for both B2B and B2C transactions.

About you:

  • Expert-level proficiency in building, testing, and deploying event-driven APIs
  • Deep knowledge of real-time messaging service platforms (chatbots, AI, conversational interfaces, dialogue managers, personal digital assistants, automation, etc.)
  • Have worked in startup environments, and/or organizations who value modern, high-tech, solid development practices
  • You possess and are passionate about strong computer science generalist fundamentals: data structures, algorithms, programming languages, distributed systems, and information retrieval

Your tech toolkit may include:
