Sidecar built a technology from the ground up that’s dedicated to one mission: Tackle the challenges retailers face in data-driven e-commerce channels. Based on advanced machine learning algorithms and deep data science expertise, our technology digests and analyzes massive, real-time datasets, allowing it to spot trends and continually improve campaigns for Google Shopping, Facebook dynamic ads, and Bing Shopping.
These channels are changing every day—and have become too complex and competitive to manage manually or with outdated technologies. They require automated, sophisticated, and ever-evolving technology to stay ahead. That’s what Sidecar is all about. We’re proud to work with retailers of all sizes and verticals in the U.S. and abroad, including Under Armour, Crate & Barrel, and Boscov’s, to name a few.
As a company, we’re a group of energetic people who work hard to make a lasting impact in the rapidly evolving world of e-commerce marketing. And our work is paying off—we are quickly becoming a tech leader and the go-to partner for e-commerce marketing pros.
Our open-floor work environment and Slack-enabled team encourages collaboration, creativity, and growth as individuals and as a company. Many of us come from e-commerce, statistical, or start-up backgrounds, but we certainly welcome talent with outside perspective and experience. We believe in regular company social events inspire friendships and strengthen our bond.
Our engineering team is instrumental in realizing our vision for our technology and the future of e-commerce marketing. You'll have the opportunity to shape your career path at Sidecar in ways that many other companies cannot offer. Our project-based team structure ensures that no one gets stuck doing the same thing for too long. We’ll add you to projects that challenge you to grow in a particular technical focus area, such as data processing, client reporting and user interfaces, or site reliability. Opportunities to take on a leadership role come up with every new project. And if you're unsure how you'd like to advance, we'll set you up to get a breadth of experience and see where you’d like to spend more time.
