About the project:
Currently, Profitero provides customers with data on how consumer products perform online from various angles: prices, availability, placement, ratings and reviews, product content, etc. Customers can use either our web application or BigQuery to get information about consumer products' performance online. Serving 400+ production clients we are now paying additional attention to the data quality, integrity and consistency. The stability and performance of the customer-facing components is also a point of focus for the nearest future.
Along with that we are developing a new Data Platform based on Google Cloud and Snowflake. Using the existing system and applications as a baseline, combining new ways of storing data, processing it, and enriching it through the data science workloads, we are aiming to build a next-generation SaaS product for the Manufacturer's Omni-Channel management.
