This role will allow you to work on complex challenges, using your quantitative abilities to identify opportunities, and play a key role in developing solutions. You will work at the intersection of operational processes and technology, and will need a strong understanding of both to be effective. You will be expected to dive deep into operational data, using quantitative methods and on-site observations to evaluate the current state of our operations, and your analysis will be critical in shaping our future technology and processes. You will work with research scientists and product managers to develop roadmaps and implement solutions, and will regularly interact with senior management to discuss your findings, proposals and progress. You will work in a fast paced and fast growing environment, where ideas are prototyped, tested, and implemented in short cycles, so you will see your inventions come to life.
