Engineering at Blueshift Labs
Engineering team and processes

We release major features monthly and minor enhancements on a weekly cadence. We are organized as micro-services with each engineer owning one or more micro-services. We pick the best technology for the job and including several programming languages and databases. Our engineers work like entrepreneurs owning end-to-end metrics of their functional areas including working with prospective customers on feature discovery and driving adoption once features go live.

Technical Challenges

We handle thousands of events per second that need to reflect changes immediately, but also have to be analyzed on a longitudinal basis with respect to all other events received. We have built a lambda architecture that can address real-time transient intents while taking a longitudinal view to compute long-term persistent affinities. We have built a unique architecture that empowers marketers to create new predictive models without needing help from machine learning engineers or data scientists.

Projects you might work on
  • We have built a domain specific language (DSL) called PLASMA (Personalization Language for Segment of one MArketers) that allows describing content recommendations. We have a patent on this technology and it drives significant revenue lift (as much as 3X) to our clients.

  • We have built a unique orchestration engine that can drive relevant messaging on any channel or customer touch-point, in-fact, our customers can build their own orchestration to engage users to new engagement touch-points (like Zapier).

  • We have built a predictive scoring algorithm that allows marketers to create predictive models without depending on development teams or data scientists. Marketers can start with the goal and work backwards to deliver superior engagement.
