Senior Data Scientist, Operations Research - Inbound Placement & Optimization

Our Mission:

Large marketplaces like Amazon have trained us to expect products delivered to our doorsteps within 1-2 days at no extra cost.  As a result, millions of sellers on other marketplaces are falling behind, unable to cost-effectively deliver products to their customers.  Our mission is to transform the $8-12T fragmented and outdated logistics industry, and build an intelligent, asset-lite network that enables any online seller to offer fast, affordable fulfillment.


Our Team:

How we arrived at Deliverr is different — we are violinists, economists, ex-consultants, journalists, and more.  What unites us together is the Deliverr factor: a bias for action, curiosity, and entrepreneurial ownership.  We're looking for intelligent, driven, and passionate people to help make our vision a reality.  We’re based in the heart of San Francisco and building teams around the globe — backed by leading Silicon Valley venture capital firms.  If you are excited about joining a people-first company that is driven to power the future of online retail, — we're looking for you.  Are you ready?


What you'll do:

  • Develop improvements to the design and optimization models to guide Deliverr’s inbound placement
    • Account for products that are often ordered together in inbound decisions
    • Incorporate replenishment timing
    • Incorporate inventory turn rate
    • Identify most impactful constraints and communicate these to teams with ability to give more capacity
    • Build a model for replenishment from long term storage
  • Develop and design models for Fulfillment Center to Fulfillment Center inventory transfers
  • Work with engineering teams to deploy models and improve existing models/processes
  • Ongoing strategic thinking to solve the following:
    • What is the optimized solution to distribute a product's inventory across a warehouse network?
    • What is the optimized solution to fulfill a customer order?
    • How do we do the above considering warehouse capacity constraints, changing transportation network performance, dynamic demand forecasts, etc.?


What we’re looking for:

  • Minimum of an undergraduate quantitive degree in applied statistics, analytics, economics, or similar
  • 3+ years of hands-on experience developing econometric or optimization models with real-world applications
  • Experience with SQL and BI tools, required
  • Experience with Python, preferred
  • Background in supply chain logistics, highly desired
  • Proven ability to move between technical modeling tasks and product-oriented questions
  • Precise and concise communication
  • Ability to organize, prioritize, and adapt in a rapid-growth startup


Bonus points:

  • Detailed knowledge of e-commerce or logistics
  • Experience running large-scale experiments
  • Experience with dbt
