You happened to stumble across the 8select career site? Have we actively contact you via social network or have you heard of us before, but can't quite classify 8select yet? - Then we bring some light into the dark.

 

 

At 8select you will find a well-rehearsed team of talented and open-minded colleagues. It is important to us that the working atmosphere remains positive even during phases of intensive work, so that the free exchange of new ideas is encouraged.  That's why we put regular team events and regular team meetings at the top of our agenda.
Although we are a young start-up, we have a structure with clearly defined goals. With the help of OKRs (Objects and Key Results) and sprint targets, we are working our way forward along the roadmap.

 

 

We at 8select love shopping online! It's uncomplicated, there are no opening hours and we can find the best price with a few clicks. Nevertheless, we are sometimes overwhelmed with the almost limitless selection. It's a good thing that some online shops have already recognized this problem and are focusing on reasonable product recommendations so that the search for the right product does not become an odyssey. This is exactly where 8select comes into play, because we have made it our top priority to implement expert based product recommendations in online shops, thus closing the gap between shopping on the web and stationary retail. With our SaaS solution, we bring the consulting experience from the stationary trade to the online shop. With this approach, we are pioneers in the market and have already won numerous customers for our idea.

 

 

 

This is easy to answer: we firmly believe that customers also want to be advised by people with solid expertise when shopping online.
Therefore we have found a way to integrate the 'human experience' into the online shop by giving the operator the possibility to present his knowledge about his product range online in a scalable way. This not only increases the shopping basket, but also saves the end customer time and reduces the return rate.
Even if our product can already do a lot, we still have a long way to go before we reach the end of our journey. So take the chance to go on this adventure with us!

Inside 8select

Our Sales & Marketing Team is the direct voice to our customers and partners. Our website, informative whitepapers, webinars with partner agencies and all online campaigns are the responsibility of our marketing colleagues.

The Sales Team takes over as soon as a lead has been identified and qualified through a marketing campaign. With the help of a cross-selling check or a product demonstration, potential customers are introduced to the Curated Shopping Engine. If the interested party decides in favour of our solution, our colleagues from the sales department will take care of onboarding and customer success management after the contract has been signed.

The Data Management team is involved in the customer's onboarding process. As soon as a connection between the respective online shop and 8select can be established through the installation of the Curated Shopping Engine, product data enters our ETL system. This allows product data to be normalized. This means that we use text mining, AI and machine learning algorithms to read even more information from the images and to homogenize recognized attributes. The process of homogenization describes the classification of information into categories and attribute generated by us.

Based on the attributes, product sets for the fashion sector are created in the content team, the "creative workshop" of 8select. New outfit sets are created on a daily basis dependent on the current season, emerging trends and concrete rules of our customers. Our team takes a very abstract approach to the composition of the outfits. For example, the individual slots (max. 5 per outfit) are not assigned to any concrete garment, but attributes are stored that apply to several garments with the same characteristics. This procedure guarantees the dynamics of our sets.

In order to integrate our solution properly in the online shops of our customers the dev team provides a corresponding interface as well as the backend and frontend. The backend, our MCON, allows the customer an exact control of the additionally sold products. In addition, the product sets can be created here based on attributes and details. Concrete settings regarding the widget in the frontend and rules for the playout of product sets, e.g. brand combinations, are also set in the MCON.

THERE IS SO MUCH MORE TO COME

After long tinkering and coding, our Curated Shopping Engine celebrated its premiere in the online shop of Van Graaf in 2016. That was just the starting shot, because since then we have continuously developed the product, made it more performant and integrated new features - all of this to the latest technological standard.
