TellApart is creating a predictive customer analytics platform that will massively enhance online marketing. We are a small team, founded and run by Google and Apple veterans, and we are very well-funded by a top venture capital firm (Greylock Partners) and many of Silicon Valley's most prominent angel investors, including: Ron Conway, Reid Hoffman, Baseline Ventures, and Dick Costolo. We are already processing millions of transactions for our early clients, and here your work will have the potential to affect the ecommerce experience for hundreds of millions of internet users.
