There are millions of e-commerce businesses around the world, and the industry is growing each year. Yet achieving profitability has never been harder. Costs are rising, it’s more tricky to acquire customers, and they have to run with lean teams. As a result, the vast majority of them guess about things like how to price their products, what discounts to offer, whether to charge for shipping, and what content they should show on the site. As a result, they leave 6-10% of potential profit on the table.
Intelligems is a profit optimization platform that helps these entrepreneurs succeed, and find all of that extra profit. The platform provides e-commerce merchants with a wide range of AB testing and personalization tools to help them understand their data, run experiments, and price dynamically.

We have excellent traction and are working with 500+ brands and have processed more than $4B of data. As we enter scaling mode, we are looking for highly talented individuals join us and help us continue to scale efficiently.
