WHAT WE DO
Founded in Silicon Valley in 2010, First Retail has helped multinational companies better understand their data assets, develop a strategy, and then turn data into insights and value. We’re also not just about ecommerce and retail – we also work with global Financial Services, Mining and Metals, and with Media, Software and Hardware companies. We also have had our R+D group been granted a patent in Semantic Analysis and were a Gartner Cool Vendor in BI and Analytics.
OUR DATA PRACTICE
We take on projects and provide skilled Data Engineers, Analysts, Data Scientists and Machine Learning Engineers to augment our clients’ teams. Our mission is to provide our clients with pragmatic solutions to delivering insight and to provide each of our consultants a portfolio of career-building projects.
OUR PRODUCT MANAGEMENT PRACTICE
We are a highly experienced and focused consulting team. We combine the disciplines of product management, program management and enterprise architecture to provide our clients with best practice solution design and delivery. Our domain expertise covers retail and B2B ecommerce, financial services, high technology, business intelligence and big data. We generally work with global and national enterprises, and the projects that we are involved in are key to corporate strategy and generally have executive sponsorship and good exposure.
OUR IMPLEMENTATION PRACTICE
Our implementation services organization provides technical expertise to cover the full project lifecycle from inception to delivery. We are able to provide consultants with a broad range of technical skills for just about any infrastructure or technology that will satisfy enterprise requirements and other more esoteric languages and applications. In addition to our in-house team, we can quickly scale up using our broader network of consultants and partners
HOW WE RECRUIT
We continually take on new clients and projects, which means we are always looking for people who want to apply their data skills to new and exciting projects. We make sure that all relationships begin with a conversation, and if that goes well, we will give you the opportunity to show off technically with a short challenge and presentation, so you can show us how you communicate complex ideas. We want to work hard to create roles and programs that will challenge and excite you.
LIFE IN SAN FRANCISCO BAY AREA
Many of our clients are in The Bay Area of California, which has a reputation as being pricey. We believe that it’s worth it for the opportunity it affords. If you want to change the world through data, the chances of doing so are far greater here than anywhere we have experienced. It’s this game changing mindset that makes companies like Amazon, Home Depot, Walmart put their R&D centers here, that makes AirBnB, Twitter, Facebook, Google, Uber, Lyft, Pinterest, Tesla stay here and continue to drive the disruptive culture. We will pay competitively for San Francisco Bay Area and we are flexible as to working hours and time-off.
