At Omnia Retail we’re using massive computing power, big data & artificial intelligence to help retailers innovate and compete in today’s marketplace. Our technology makes category managers, buyers and online marketers within a retailer much more effective in their jobs. We automate the boring operational parts of their jobs and the software gives them superpowers.
We believe it is still day 1 in terms of innovative automation within retail.
Our data-driven culture means we don’t like (and tolerate) office politics, but we love convincing others of our ideas by hard data. We are as passionate about building elegant and effective algorithms as we are about winning our table tennis and table soccer matches in the Play Area of our office. Because we are rapidly scaling up, this generates a lot of opportunities for everyone in our company to grow with the company and learn at an incredible pace. Working at Omnia means you’re working in an environment that is changing continuously. We all thrive on that change and we value people that are self-starters and show entrepreneurship.
Together, Omnia’s founders have over 30 years of experience in all aspects of retail: software development for retailers, retail strategy consulting and hands-on commercial retail experience.The founding team combines cutting-edge technical skills of software developers and UX specialists, with the retail experience and data science skills of former strategy consultants.
HERMAN DE JAGER founded his first company Connective Power in 1995, developing an omnichannel commerce platform for retailers when e-commerce just coming up (and before Google was even founded). The Amyx platform is an integrated webshop platform, cash register for physical stores and an ERP system for medium-sized retailers. This lead to great insights into the full spectrum of IT systems for retailers.
SANDER ROOSE gained practical retail experience working within Customer Business Development at Procter&Gamble. After P&G, Sander – together with two former eBay business developers – became owner of online strategy consultancy firm Harvest, which was later acquired by Naspers (OLX). Sander then founded commerce squared, a boutique retail strategy consulting firm focusing fully on digital projects.
Working at Omnia Retail is the perfect combination between working with big data, doing consulting work for high-profile customers and gaining experience in the retail industry while working with talented colleagues.
As a developer I love challenges, cutting edge solutions and making an impact. At Omnia Retail I get to do all these things, while working with great colleagues that come from all over the world.
