Long term contract

An excellent opportunity for a Data Scientist to join a leading international client in Malmo, Sweden on a minimum contract until the end of 2019 + extensions long term.

The Order Fulfilment & Delivery Analytics team is working to improve the delivery of products to our customers, by the use of data and analytics.

In particular, we are developing analytical models (using prediction, optimization, visualization, etc.) that support the business in better decision making in all aspects of the fulfilment and delivery flows.

Development of advanced analytics models, primarily for two use cases:

  1. A) Range allocation optimization and B) Transport Service Provider (TSP) capacity allocation.

A: The consultant should assist with designing and implementing a mathematical optimization model that aims to answer the question of which articles should be kept in stock in which fulfilment units, in order to minimize costs of delivery and storage, while respecting constraints eg concerning the number of articles that can be stored in each unit. A first version of the model has already been built, and we expect to iteratively refine this model during the coming months.

B: The consultant should assist with designing and implementing a decision support tool for improved allocation of delivery capacity in different markets. Initially, the model should visualize the current capacity situation to business owners, and potentially incorporate forecasts/prediction models to increase the relevance of the visualization by highlighting upcoming problem spots. In subsequent versions of the model, we may want to incorporate an optimization model that can provide suggestions for how to better allocate the capacity across time and space.

Desired knowledge, experience, competence skills etc.

Required: Python and relevant data science packages (eg numpy, scipy, pandas), Basic Mathematical Modelling, Some experience building machine learning or optimization models, data visualization using Python packages like matplotlib or similar. Ability to learn quickly. Ability to communicate with business stakeholders.

Desired: Advanced mathematical modelling skills. Experience with Optimization models (linear and mixed integer programming or alternatively discrete/combinatorial optimization). Experience building forecasting models using machine learning or time series methods. Experience working with and deploying to Google Cloud Platform or similar cloud platforms.

Three most important things

Python and relevant data science packages (eg numpy, scipy, pandas)

Mathematical modelling (ideally for optimization and/or machine learning)

Ability to work in a dynamic business setting, learning and communicating with various team members and stakeholders
