About us:

Wiser Solutions is a suite of in-store and eCommerce intelligence and execution tools. We're on a mission to enable brands, retailers, and retail channel partners to gather intelligence and automate actions to optimize pricing, marketing, and operations initiatives, both in-store and online. Our Commerce Execution Suite is available globally.

Essential Functions:

When looking to buy a product, whether it is in a brick and mortar store or online, it can be hard enough to find one that not only has the characteristics you are looking for but is also at a price that you are willing to pay. It can also be especially frustrating when you finally find one, but it is out of stock. Likewise, brands and retailers can have a difficult time getting the visibility they need to ensure you have the most seamless experience as possible in selecting their product. We at Wiser believe that shoppers should have this seamless experience, and we want to do that by providing the brands and retailers the visibility they need to make that belief a reality.

Our goal is to solve a messy problem elegantly and cost effectively.

We help our customers be more competitive by discovering interesting patterns in this data they can use to their advantage, while being uniquely positioned to be able to do this across both online and instore.

We are looking for a strong technical manager to lead the charge on a team of like-minded individuals.
