Job description

AnyVan makes moving anything, anywhere easier, more affordable and greener for everyone. With Over 8 million customers across the UK and Europe since our launch over a decade ago, we’re proud to be known as the largest, fastest growing tech company in the logistics industry.

Like many popular marketplaces, we’re asset light – i.e., we don’t own any vehicles or employ any drivers. We work with our transport partners and use technology to disrupt the entire delivery and moving process and to optimise the most efficient journeys.

Sustainability is a core part of AnyVan’s mission and reducing environmental impact has always been at the heart of our business. We’re proud to say we’ve achieved carbon-neutral status on all our transport moves, and we won’t stop here.

We’ve continuously celebrated exciting growth and key milestones, a key highlight being a £125mn investment from Vitruvian partners to reinforce our position as the UK market leader. We’re expecting the next 5 years to be even more exciting.

Our platform might be driven by technology, but we know it’s our people that make AnyVan a great place to work. We think big, we think differently, and we empower our colleagues to make a difference. We know good ideas can come from anyone in any role – so if you’re a self-starter looking to ‘move’ your career forward – Team AnyVan would love to hear from you.

Our Data Science Team help ensure we deliver industry leading products/services for our customers and delivery partners, whilst minimising our environmental impact. As a Data Scientist you will be comfortable programming and managing a wide range of concepts and ideas related to this.

What you'll be doing:

  • Work within a small team using data science techniques in creative ways to impact meaningful decisioning for the business
  • Maintain and enhance our existing machine learning models to gain actionable business insights, developing, implementing and testing new modelling approaches
  • Support the senior data scientists and deliver high quality meaningful data science that ultimately supports meaningful decisioning to predict, measure and interpret business trends
  • Gain exposure to and be comfortable working with; Heuristic routing, price optimisation, clustering techniques, outlier detection modeling, behavioural analysis, k-means, linear, logistic and many more regression techniques
  • Communication is key - You will be able to interact with a range of key stakeholders, to help identify, scope, plan and manage projects and ensure findings can be easily translatable to both technical and non-technical internal audiences
Skills and experience we think you'll need to be successful in the role:

  • Be passionate about learning and have the ability to tell actionable stories with data
  • Proficient in using SQL to retrieve and manipulate data
  • Some experience of deploying ML models and pipelines into production encompassing coding standards and testing
  • Challenge existing assumptions and spot opportunities to improve customer experience, make our operations more efficient and impact our carbon footprint and financial performance
  • Ability to communicate complex findings to key stakeholders in a simple way, with excellent data visualisation and storytelling skills
  • Thrive in a fast-moving and quickly changing environment
  • You will need to enjoy working on new ideas and engaging people to help make positive changes
We are extremely proud of our culture and believe in the many benefits that being in the office provides and all of our roles require regular time in one of our key offices depending on where you’re based (Hammersmith or Newcastle). If we are able to support visa sponsorship for a role it will be highlighted in the requirements section.

We support flexible and hybrid working wherever possible but some roles remain fully office based. Where we can support it, typical working patterns would be 3 days in the office 2 days from home. However, we appreciate everyone’s situation is unique and are open to conversations around the working patterns.

Diversity and Inclusion

At AnyVan we’re focused on equality. We believe that diverse teams are the best teams and foster an inclusive environment where we celebrate our differences and where our people can be their authentic selves.
