The Opportunity

Eversight is the recognized leader in AI-powered price and promotions. Eversight’s proprietary cloud-based SaaS solution brings AI and continuous experimentation to consumer brands and retailers. Our software acts as a coach, enabling market leaders to transform pricing and promotion strategy for the $3.4 trillion spent in consumer goods retail using intelligent, real-time data and insights.

    • Create model validation methods to make sure that our models are accurate and to quantify the impact of our solutions on the clients’ bottom line

  • Partner with the Engineering team to create highly scalable solutions

  • Serve as Data Science expert both within Eversight and for our clients

    • Lead custom analyses and connect them to actionable Business and Product insights
    • Help prioritize new feature development by assessing potential impact
    • Be a go-to resource for science-related questions about the product
