Senior Front-End Engineer at Thanx
San Francisco, CA, US

Why Thanx

Americans spend more than $5 trillion on restaurants, retail, and services each year. Nearly 90% of those transactions happen in a real-world store. Online, data is king. It powers personalized customer experiences and product recommendations. Offline, it’s still 1999. No data is captured; certainly, none is used to improve merchant decision-making or customer experience. No wonder brick-and-mortar stores are being left behind.

Thanx is a customer engagement platform -  an integrated solution that enables merchants to interact with their customers. Point solutions are so 2000s. Data on spending, location, time, items/SKUs, and feedback is ingested from multiple sources. Leveraging this data, Thanx provides a complete, longitudinal view of a customer, enabling merchants to engage with customers in a personalized way. Plus, with a closed loop with credit card networks, merchants can,  for once, measure changes in consumer behavior for each marketing dollar thats spent.

In a nutshell, Thanx ingests data, provides insights, enables actions to drive growth in the business. As a platform, Thanx is a horizontally-scalable, reliable, high-throughput, low-latency system.

Thanx is backed by some of the best investors in the world — Sequoia Capital, Icon Ventures, and Andy Rachleff (CEO Wealthfront, cofounder Benchmark Capital), to name a few.
