Black Crow AI is looking for a data engineer that can work on our machine learning platform - from data ingestion to model building. You'll be part of a small, close-knit team that will empower you to have a big impact.

About this position

About us:

Seeing the future is the future. Advances in machine learning allow companies to optimize every aspect of their operations - from building technology to acquiring customers.

But benefitting from those advancements is expensive and challenging. The cost of in-house data science infrastructure and expertise is astronomical and results are slow. Whereas predictive offerings inside third-party tools have limited applicability within that specific tool - and none outside of it.


Enter Black Crow AI. 

Black Crow AI is the turnkey data science solution for ecommerce. Our plug-and-play Predictive Intelligence Platform leverages patented technology to predict customer value in real-time and deliver that intelligence into any tool, any team with ease. We hand customers powerful predictions and simple playbooks to help them transform every workflow across their business overnight. In doing so, we allow teams and tools to unlock their potential and provide a common language about customers that whole organizations now speak.

Our team mirrors the potential-unlocking power of our product offering. Our work is fueled by the knowledge that each person at Black Crow is unique - possessing a distinct mix of skills, personality, and passions. We embrace those diverse talents to tackle technical challenges, refine our successfully disruptive offering, and co-create one of the most humane and inspiring work cultures out there. Simply put, Black Crow AI is a place where very smart people come together to build on ideas and do amazing things.
