Job description

A US-based company that provides customers with ML-based predictions about the latest trends in the beauty and wellness industry, is looking for a Back-end/Data Engineer. The engineer will be helping the existing team to design and implement the next iteration of the data pipeline, storage, and APIs for the SaaS platform.
