Here’s the deal
We’re at a turning point in retail right now. The wholesale industry is a trillion-dollar market currently divided between 1.2 million retailers. The world is moving from a big box environment to a personalized, curated space where retailers are becoming storytellers and tastemakers rather than providers of plenty. This means that independent retailers need efficient ways of sorting through the clutter and getting the right products to their shelves. It also means that those independent retailers need to find ways of competing with the larger players.
That’s where Hubba comes in. We use a combination of machine learning and personal curation to match retailers with the right brands and products for their stores. We make the sourcing and discovery process easy and facilitate the process of getting the hottest new products onto independent retailer shelves.
What we’ll look for
We need to design a smart and efficient recommendation system that is robust enough to recommend products to retailers based on their business needs, as well as recommend connections to our users to help them grow their networks and their businesses.
You will define and deploy algorithms to automate econometric learning and drive optimal decision making in providing the correct recommendations to retailers and brands alike. Our users should feel like they have a personal assistant who knows their business sending them information that appeals to them every time they access Hubba.
