The platform improves and automates B2C marketing campaigns (emails, SMS, push notifications) by personalising actions based on users' characteristics and behaviours. Using machine learning algorithms, they are able to learn from historic campaigns and continuously optimises to recommend the Next Best Action for each customer.
We have built a working product which is in commercial use, and need a Software Architect to help us scale by building a more robust infrastructure and front-end, as well as optimise our database backend.
You will have the opportunity to design and implement a full stack infrastructure for a green field project, and choose the right programming languages and frameworks.
