TellApart unlocks the power of customer data for many of the world's largest retailers. Our sophisticated distributed systems power a real-time customer scoring platform (for 100s of millions of consumers in real time) that allows us to make data driven decisions to lift our retailers' revenue by double digit percentage points. Our strengths are building web-scale infrastructure, handling massive data pipelines, and building systems leveraging machine learning to make intelligent decisions.

Software engineers at TellApart build out our customer data platform as well as the applications on top of the data platform which drive massive amounts of value to our clients as well as their customers every day.
