About Engineering at Alloy

At Alloy we empower consumer goods brands to evaluate, predict, and respond to true demand.

To make this possible, we model a vast array of data across the entire supply chain: from retailer point-of-sale and e-commerce sales and inventory, orders and shipments between trading partners, to upstream supplier data. We then make all this data actionable for our customers by delivering predictive insights and intelligent recommendations. 

In particular, our machine learning efforts focus on delivering near real-time forecasting, and enabling customers to respond efficiently with proactive out-of-stock notifications, anomaly detection, and automatic alerting, and other smart features.

If this sounds exciting, you may be the Machine Learning Engineer we’re looking for.

About You

    • You have experience building scalable prediction pipelines in production environments, preferably using Python
    • You are familiar with machine learning fundamentals or timeseries forecasting techniques
    • You enjoy understanding customer business needs and translating them into specifications or code
    • You prefer to ship fast and iterate, rather than get it perfect the first time
    • You value open and respectful communication. We have three development offices in different time zones, all working on the same platform.

Responsibilities

    • Form the core of a new team focused on demand forecasting and other applications of machine learning, along with our team of Data Scientists
    • Create abstractions and tooling that accelerate the development of new predictive models
    • Collaborate with Data Scientists to move models from prototype to production
    • Build data pipelines and systems that can run predictions on tens of millions of item-location combinations at scale

Our Stack

    • Engineers at Alloy contribute across the stack. On the frontend, you will work with a modern web stack, built with Typescript and React; on the backend, you will work in Java 11 and Python 3.
