Staff Engineer - Customer Identity Graph

The Customer Identity team is responsible for providing a platform that enables Wayfair teams to access and activate customer data for applications including personalization, targeted notifications/advertising, and customer service among others. We collect 1st and 3rd party customer data (i.e. demographic attributes, account attributes, shopping activity, and data science model predictions) from a breadth of sources, organize it into our data platform (called Nucleus), and make it accessible through our Customer Information and Segmentation services.

One of the key levers for Wayfairs ability to personalize content and hyper-target messaging is our identity graph. The identity graph's mission is to resolve customer identity across a fragmented landscape of devices and identifier-spaces.
