Pricing Assistant is a service that optimizes the prices of online stores. Our algorithm automatically finds all competitors/resellers and their prices, for each product.
TECHNOLOGY STACK & PROJECTS
We are primarily a Python shop, where developers get to work on hard problems (web scraping, machine learning, econometrics) at scale (think worldwide e-commerce).
Our architecture has 2 main components:
- An asynchronous job queue based on Redis & MongoDB that we recently open-sourced, called MRQ. Our workers, distributed in multiple datacenters with Docker containers, perform millions of jobs every day.
- A single-page Backbone.js app deployed on Heroku, interacting with a REST API.
We use Free Software extensively in all our stack.
- Open-source culture
