About Pragmatik AI

Do you want to be an inaugural data scientist at a startup where you have influence over the direction the company takes? If yes, we’d love to hear from you.

Pragmatik AI is on a mission to modernise eCommerce data analytics.

For too long eCommerce merchants have relied on disjointed, low resolution and stale data. Pragmatik AI has built a modern data collection & processing platform and is now building algorithms to unlock the future of eCommerce; real-time automation.

Our customers want tools to help them personalise shopping experiences and provide marketing automation. The event-based information we collect is processed and turned into algorithms that power ad attribution, ad campaign automation and real-time on-site merchandising tools.

We’re a privately funded and high growth tech startup. Our focus is on growing revenue and not diluting shares through VC funding.
