Job Description

At Blue Yonder, we employ state-of-the-art machine learning algorithms to generate hundreds of millions of microdecisions for large retail enterprises every day.

Our retail products run on the Blue Yonder platform that provides all necessary services to deliver best decisions to our customers. Our platform defines standard APIs for customer payload data exchange and offers the computational punch for our data scientists, scaling from a single CPU to hundreds of cores and terabytes of RAM within seconds. All this happens for all customers on the same shared infrastructure hosted on Microsoft Azure.
As one of a few companies world wide, we have solved the tough problem of bringing data science to production while keeping costs and operations at bay. Now part of the global Blue Yonder family, we continue to relentlessly drive innovation to pursue our vision of the autonomous supply chain.
