As the data and algorithms lead, you will own every aspect of Zing’s data, algorithms and analytics. We are looking for an experienced, independent, and out-of-the-box thinker to join us and build Zing’s algorithmic backbone from the ground up. As we grow, you will work with the founding team to solve the complex problem of how to conquer suburban commerce by utilizing cutting edge algorithms to drive operational efficiency, growth, and produce a first-in-class product. At Zing, we try to infuse each customer experience with a bit of magic; we also know that there’s no magic if we haven’t gotten the basics of our technology design exactly right. While scaling Zing’s existing tech from one to many locations, from a few vehicle prototypes to a fleet of hundreds of smart, modular, and connected Zing-mobiles, you will work alongside our entire tech, product and operations organizations to be as obsessed with technological excellence as the founding team. You will be joining a high-growth, venture-backed startup — led by co-founders who have founded and led multiple successful businesses — and will play a critical role in scaling our business into an entirely new mode of commerce!
