Ometria's mission is to stop impersonal ‘one size fits all’ marketing campaigns and make the way retailers communicate with the customers more personalised and engaging. We are bringing the technology of the hyper-growth retail giants, like Amazon, to many more retailers utilising advanced data modelling and machine learning techniques. For many retailers, the core issue is getting a consistent and usable view of all their customer data in one place, however once that it available its possible to use that data in innovative ways to drastically improve the customer experience.
Backed by top VC funds and successful entrepreneurs, and working alongside over a hundred of the fastest growing retailers, we are now looking for a Backend Python Developer to join our growing engineering team.

We understand the challenges that retailers face, and we are excited about being able to offer them one of the most innovative solutions in the market: a platform that delivers powerful customer insights, alongside tools to leverage that insight to market to them more effectively across numerous channels.

With some heavy hitters backing us, and a collection of leading retailers as our client base, we are looking for a Data Scientist with a strong knowledge of Machine Learning to join our growing engineering team. Reporting directly to the CTO, you will guide and advise the team on how we use machine learning to stay ahead of the market and build a strong platform that serves both current and future Ometrian clients.
