Senior Machine Learning Engineer - Pricing

otrium · 24 days ago

Our purpose

Otrium is a purpose-led business – we see a future where all clothing is worn.

Every year, billions of items are produced globally but are never sold. Clothing goes unworn and often ends up in landfills. This is a huge waste of creative energy, labour, natural resources and investment. Otrium is changing fashion from the inside out: we are an online fashion outlet marketplace and we tech-enable designer brands to find an owner for every item they produce. 

How we work

Founded and headquartered in Amsterdam, operating across Europe, Otrium is a start-up company whose diverse, talented and international team, works diligently and passionately to achieve one mission: Wear Over Waste. We have a hybrid set-up which offers flexibility and freedom to our O-Team - this means we encourage our (local) O-Team members to join together in our office based in the Houthavens, Amsterdam at least 2 days per week. Do you have a gym class at 11am or want to take your dog for a walk? Just make up the hour some other way. Fancy a change of scenery whilst you do your work? Feel free to make use of our 8 weeks Workation policy! 


Your impact

It's all about the love for data combined with a love for programming! That, in combination with working on software that is changing the world of online shopping and its pricing.  If you're an experienced individual who can take ownership of their work and believes in what they are building is going to have a great impact on the business and if you love building great services, hop on, this job is for you!

We are looking for a Senior Machine Learning Engineer to help us maintain and expand our proprietary dynamic pricing engine called Smart Pricing. It is a homegrown service that predicts the correct price point for a fashion item based on various signals attributed to the items as well as buying patterns of our users. It is the finest blend of superior algorithms and a carefully curated and managed data store and has been one of our highest value services to our customers. Now we are looking for a senior developer who can take it to the next level and beyond. If you love building a tech that can in effect turn the fortunes of a business, this role is for you!

Your responsibilities
