An Insider's view of Shelf Engine

What's something quirky about your company?

Our CTO, Bede Jordan, presents a weekly segment during our All Hands meeting aptly named: Sportsball—weekly sports updates from a guy who knows nothing about sports. Past segments have included breaking news updates on underwater hockey, kayak polo, corgi sledding, and are headlined by a Dodgeball-themed photoshop of Bede himself.


Sr. Customer Success Manager

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

As the Data Science Product Manager, I collaborate with almost every team daily. Doing so helps our team to better understand the trends we find in data. The customer-facing teams provide invaluable input on product features and strategy, and we connect constantly with Engineering to scope and build our constantly evolving AI system.

We’re growing quickly, so there are many opportunities to dig into a new project, pick up a new skill, and learn from brilliant teammates.


Business Analyst

How do your team's ideas influence the company's direction?

We are building pioneering advancements in AI to reduce food waste. We support grocers, bring down food prices, and reduce the negative sociological and environmental impacts of waste using supply chain, inventory, optimization, causal inference, experimentation, ML Ops, and ML explainability for a daily positive impact—and we've only just begun!


Head of Data Science

What makes someone successful on your team?

Strong communication, collaboration, and the ability to recognize and advocate for areas of improvement of both the product and our technology. When we work together as a team to continuously identify and deliver the highest possible impact, there’s really nothing that we can’t accomplish.
