Employer Profile: Custora, New York, NY


Custora is a predictive marketing platform built for e-commerce teams. Our software helps retailers acquire valuable customers and improve customer retention.

Custora analyzes data to predict how customers will behave in the future — the things they’re likely to buy, how much they’ll spend, even how often they’ll shop. These customer-specific insights enable brands to advertise and communicate in more effective and meaningful ways.

We’re on a mission to remove the “mass” from marketing with software tools that focus on customers as individuals with unique needs and interests. Our platform employs the state of the art in customer analytics methodologies and helps marketers deliver more relevant, meaningful, and effective communications. We work with some of the world’s leading e-commerce brands including Guess, Ann Taylor, Crocs, and Bonobos.

Our offices are located in the Flatiron district of Manhattan and we have a decent view of the Empire State Building from one of the windows in the back corner.

Custora began as an idea scribbled in the margins of a notepad at Wharton and blossomed as a Y Combinator participant in 2011. After securing a seed round of financing, we grew steadily as revenues increased. In the Spring of 2015 we secured a Series A round led by Foundation Capital and Greycroft Partners to further accelerate our reach and finally get that new dart board.

We work hard, work together, and care deeply about building a meaningful business, collaborative team, and exceptional culture that we’re proud to be a part of.
