Due to our aggressive core growth plans, and a major shipping provider asking us to digitize one of their lines of business, we are scaling our technology team. This includes the addition of several data scientists.
As a data scientist you are expected to help formulate clear problem definitions, work on proof of concepts to prove the feasibility of the proposed approaches and maintain and improve our current models in production. Additionally, by suggesting and implementing metrics to be tracked you will help us with building out our analytics capabilities. As such, a good foundation in mathematics and statistics is expected. Expect to work on a broad scope of data science related problems, varying from regression to mathematical optimisation, so any experience in such topics is appreciated. However, don’t be deterred, what we value most is willingness to learn and the persistence to work through challenging problems.
