Quantitative Developer

Our Data Scientists translate business expectations into mathematics and implement models that solve some of the biggest problems our customers deal with on a daily basis. This code then needs to be tested and put in production so that our customers can use it seamlessly.

At Transmetrics, the Data Science team deals with three main topics:

Data Cleansing: Make the customer’s data more reliable (outlier detection, imputation, etc.) Logistics data is often entered manually which is typically prone to errors;

Forecasting Demand: Predict how many trucks, packages or containers will have to be shipped between two locations at a given date. Such predictions have to take into account seasonality and special days (public holidays across the world, Black Friday, etc.);

Optimization: What is the cheapest way to satisfy all the delivery deadlines? This typically leads to Mixed-Integer Programming problems with hundreds of thousands of variables (or more!).”

CORE REQUIREMENTS:

Degree in a Relevant Major: Mathematics, Statistics, Computer Science, or similar majors;

Solid Programming Skills: Experience with Python and/or R. Knowledge of Docker is a plus.

MAIN RESPONSIBILITIES:

Write Production-Ready Code with the Data Science Team: Help productize promising prototypes from the Data Science team. Your code will run live in our product and needs to be robust to data inconsistencies;

Collaborate with Data Scientists and the Engineering Team: Exchange ideas, discuss technical problems;

Learn and Grow: From day one the team is there to help you develop. Gradually we expect new members to start assisting with data integration and feature design as they get more acquainted with the product and the business logic behind it.

HOW YOU WILL SPEND YOUR TIME:
– 70% – Writing code, testing and documenting;
– 20% – Collaborating with other data scientists;
– 9% – Interacting with non-technical colleagues or customers;
– 1% – Drinking coffee (or tea).

About Transmetrics

Transmetrics is a rapidly growing startup that is dramatically changing the cargo transport industry worldwide by predicting and optimizing capacity utilization. This is a huge industry - more than €2 trillion globally. At the same time, it is extremely inefficient as average capacity utilization is only 57%, and 1 in 4 trucks you see on the road is traveling empty!

To solve this problem, Transmetrics developed a Big Data predictive analytics SaaS that is designed specifically for cargo transport industry. We use statistical algorithms, data mining, and machine learning techniques to create accurate shipping demand forecasts and to suggest the most optimal transport plan. Being the first company in the world to focus on predictive optimization for the cargo industry, Transmetrics is already working with the leading logistics companies worldwide.

Transmetrics founders and the team have extensive domain knowledge in the cargo industry as well as deep technical expertise in building massive data processing and predictive analytics solutions. We have solid backing from both venture capital and high-profile angel investors from the industry.

The opportunity is great, but we need you to help us get there!
