Who we are
At Schwarz Media Platform (SMP) we re-envision and build the future of retail media. We are building towards extremes: while our machine learning algorithms train on hundreds of millions consumer purchase decisions around Europe, our APIs need to deliver ads and reports in milliseconds. But not just any ads: Our ad assignments fit consumer preferences. Our ads deliver the impact which others merely promise — without being annoying for consumers.
We are a startup, owned and backed by Europe’s largest retailer — Schwarz Group. The group operates around 11,000 Lidl stores, 1,300 Kaufland stores as well as one of the most successful ecommerce marketplaces. These stores are the number one choice for millions of consumers to fill their every day’s needs. The data owned and the media channels operated by the group are the foundation of our business.

What we do
NEXT BIG THING
Our retail media platform is a scalable, machine learning-based system that targets consumers individually with the most impactful ads. It deeply understands consumer preferences and is able to predict an ad’s impact on the consumer — online and offline. Our bidding and targeting technology enables brands to talk to consumers most relevant to them and choose their desired return on ad spend. Sophisticated reporting helps advertisers to measure success in a previously unknown frequency.
At its core, our platform analyses massive purchase data, orchestrates campaigns, and delivers ads to different touchpoints that are relevant and impactful. And that consumers don’t want to miss.
IN SIMPLE WORDS
Our platform analyzes
massive amounts of consumer data

and deliver maximum ROAS

How we do it
We work in small cross-functional teams with up to five engineers of different backgrounds and a product manager. The team is fully responsible for a set of features and is free to define their own ways of working and are encouraged to make bold decisions. Our vision and mission are aligned between teams in a collaborative and transparent environment.
Because every team is working on important features and every team member has a dedicated role in the team, we only hire the best engineers and product managers: People who are truly in love with what they do and have the communication and social skills to work with their team.
Work in a startup environment
We keep a startup spirit but manage projects extremely professionally. We create, iterate, and deliver high-quality solutions at rapid pace — outside of unwieldy corporate bureaucracy while being able to enjoy corporate resources and stability. We are professionals but we also enjoy fun conversations and get-togethers all year long. Plus we love diversity and invite you to bring some to the team!
