Imper

Imper delivers new B2B opportunities and customers thanks to smart data and artificial intelligence.

Smart data are not static databases, but up-to-date information, which will tell you who your customer is and help you to find more. They are able to determine who has shown interest in your products or services and even who needs them currently or is going to need them. They can measure what brings in new customers and what, on the other hand, does not. The purpose of our data is not to look for or create a customer’s interest, but to measure and identify their needs and whether they are being met. Thus we do not only provide data, but actually also new opportunities.

Thousands of companies build their business and marketing on our data. We deliver high-quality information which can become the foundation of your company’s business and marketing as well.

And yes, we are hiring #python #postgres #elastic
