My name is Brianna Cabanas and I represent The Fountain Group. We are a national staffing firm and are currently seeking a Predictive Shopping Specialist for a prominent client of ours. This position is located in Cambridge, MA. Details for the position are as follows:
Improve and extend understanding of sporting goods merchandise for our e-commerce AI recommendation engine, “Complete the Set.”
Your focus is to help the AI determine what pieces of merchandise shoppers will possibly purchase together to complete an online sporting goods shopping experience.
You’ll work closely with a team of AI trainers focused on different retail domains (e.g. apparel, cosmetics, home furnishings), while contributing your specialized knowledge of sporting goods. You will also collaborate extensively with data scientists and software engineers who are building and improving our internal AI- driven recommendation engine for merchandising platforms.
You will have to learn how to categorize different sporting goods products such that the algorithm understands what products are incompatible with each other and can subsequently learn to generate sets of products that “go together.”
The job will be performed entirely remotely while Covid-19 protocols are ongoing. We will provide you with a work laptop. It is expected that you will come into the office in-person 20% of the time once shelter-in-place protocols are removed and normal working conditions resume.
*Impact of work:*
We want to create magical moments for a shopper where we help them find products that they may need but didn’t know existed. The algorithm is already in use by many popular e-commerce sites and your work will help us expand it further.
*Traits we are looking for:*
You should be a meticulous and analytical thinker who loves creating systems and order. You must be comfortable with computer software and open to learning new computer skills. The technology we are building is bleeding-edge -- it will develop at a rapid pace, so you must be adaptable and able to think quickly on your feet. The ideal candidate will have a love for and/or curiosity about the world of e-commerce.
You must have product expertise in sporting goods. Coding experience helpful but not necessary. Students are welcome.
The Fountain Group gives you access to more opportunities in your area of expertise and allows you to gain advice and skills training that will help you advance in your chosen career field
