Hi! This is Yalo! We are on a mission to bring conversational commerce to the world...

Remember how it used to be to interact with businesses that knew and understood you, that could recommend exactly what you needed, and that with a simple message could get you what you wanted??? Yep... neither do we. That is why at Yalo we are marrying the scale of digital commerce with the personalization and simplicity of conversations to help companies delight their users.

We know that traditional SAAS companies focus on first world problems... we don't! Having started in Latin America, our roots are in Emerging Markets and therefore we care about bringing amazing experiences to a population that traditionally has been underserved, such as the small shop owner in Brazil that is ordering online for the first time.

If you're looking for a place to make things happen, learn fast, and impact emerging markets in a way that hasn't been done before, look no further. 💫

Come Join us in our mission of improving billions of lives through the power of conversational commerce!

Your mission 🚀

As a Senior Data Scientist, you will help us enhance our products and features by applying advanced statistical techniques, machine learning algorithms, and deep learning frameworks. You will be working closely with product, engineering and business teams to build, integrate and deliver successful algorithms to our state of the art SaaS platform.

What are the responsibilities for this role?

  • Perform hands-on data analysis and modeling with big data, that includes conversational data, behavioral data, ecommerce, among others
  • Prompt Engineering:
    • Design and test prompts that effectively guide AI language models to generate accurate, relevant, and coherent responses.
    • Analyze different prompting strategies and their outcomes to continually improve model interactions.
  • Model-Tuning:
    • Customize the model's responses for specific applications, ensuring they meet user requirements and business objectives.
    • Collaborate with data scientists and engineers to fine-tune the model based on feedback and performance metrics.
  • Quality Assurance:
    • Conduct rigorous testing to identify any biases or inaccuracies in the model's responses.
    • Implement strategies to mitigate any identified issues, ensuring ethical and responsible use of AI technology.
  • User Experience Design:
    • Work closely with UX designers to ensure that prompts and responses enhance user interaction with the AI model.
    • Develop guidelines and best practices for prompt creation and model interaction.
  • Documentation and Training:
    • Create comprehensive documentation on prompt engineering and fine-tuning processes.
  • Work side-by-side with product managers, software engineers, and designers to enhance our features and products through analytics
