Software Engineer

New York, United States · Engineering


Bluecore is an NYC based startup. Our eCommerce personalization platform analyzes billions of eCommerce behavioral events -in real time- per month.

With a team of just four engineers, we've built products that are used by some of the biggest eCommerce sites and international brands. We believe in hiring for potential, rather than a high correlation of pure skill-sets for the roles we have.

Having said that, our technology stack on the back end is in Python on Google App Engine. Our front-end integration is in JavaScript and Coffeescript. We have also developed a domain specific language to describe eCommerce personalization in terms of predicates on customers and products.

We build many internal and customer facing tools, including an innovative template editing CMS on top of Github.

Even though our first application is currently focused on email, we are a company that deals with massive amounts of data. We ingest massive amounts of data about customers, and the products they look at, the size, color, brand etc - and process all of that in real time!

** Why work at Bluecore?

1. We handle very large real time datasets; we're 18 months old and have a 12TB well structured dataset.
2. Our engineers are given large responsibilities. We consider them smart creatives not shackled with 4-hour tasks.
3. We have about 700 unit tests. We parallelize them on many machines to ensure that the test suite always runs in under 3 minutes.
4. We handle many thousands of requests per second, but that increases every day as we grow.
5. We deploy many many times to production every day.
