Our client is a Swiss start-up and we are looking for a very strong and capable Tech Lead to join the team, to lead the architecture design and development of the innovative AI-based search agent platform.
The team is developing a paradigm-shifting search agent mechanism, involving a whole new search experience driven by AI (ML/NLP). The first application is in product search, essentially replacing the standard ‘filter’ component in marketplaces and e-commerce sites. The result is a virtual agent that helps you to discover the right products for you — by helping you explore choices, stimulating you to consider alternatives, automatically processing your (potentially conflicting) preferences, and engaging with you through multiple channels (web, mobile, messenger) using natural language.
The tech stack is currently based on React and Python. The first development phases have been completed, and an MVP for a fully functional marketplace is in place. This enables us to test all the core concepts, before moving to the development of components and a service backbone (tech stacks yet to be finalized) that we can integrate and deliver to marketplace/e-commerce players.
You will strengthen the back-end team to take us through these important next phases.
