Meet Upside:

We created Upside to transform brick-and-mortar commerce. Our technology uses the sophistication of online retail—profit measurement, attribution, and incrementality—to provide users with more value on their everyday purchases and brick-and-mortar businesses with new, profitable customers. We've helped millions of users earn 2 to 3 times more cashback than any other product, and hundreds of thousands of brick-and-mortar businesses earn measurable profit. Billions of dollars in commerce run through the Upside platform every year, and that value goes directly back to our retailer partners, the consumers they serve, and important sustainability initiatives.

You'll work with peers who have experience developing ML models designed for production with the support of a dedicated engineering team. You'll align closely with analysts, stakeholders, and data engineers across the company to define solutions to pressing problems. Your work will directly and measurably impact the company's revenue by innovating on our pricing and recommendation systems. We foster a collaborative environment where you'll have ownership of your modeling efforts and actively participate in project creation and planning.
