During the period of your internship, you will work on solving problems using technology to help make following 3 decisions:
- Pricing decision: When making an online purchase, buyers compare products across different sellers / platforms and product price is a key factor for this comparison. So, price is one of the most important decisions that a platform / seller can make to determine the sales of their products. The pricing related projects focus on building intelligent products using data and smart technology to directly impact this decision either manually or automatically
- Selection decision: For any ecommerce - having good selection coverage (that customers want / need) is the first step to ensure a good customer experience. And having a finite working capital - making sure the Tiki’s retail business chooses the best brands / products to sell is one of the most important financial decisions that determines the health of Retail business. Selection related projects will focus on building smart products that suggest the brands/products the business should focus the most for selling on Tiki (to reduce the risk of non selling products in the warehouse)
- Promotions decision: Promotions / campaigns influence customer behavior and help businesses grow their sales. However given the huge # of products being sold and the fixed amount of promotion budget, many difficult choices need to be made - such as - which products need promotion the most? What kind of promotion will work? How long should the promotion run? etc. need to be made on a daily basis so the promotions budget is utilized in the most optimal way. Promotions related projects focus on utilizing historical and present data combined with technology to answer these questions.
