Data Science Analyst

Do you want to join us on the mission to simplify shopping?

Are you driven, curious and passionate about telling stories based on data and mathematical models? Are you knowledgeable about data storage structures, and how to mine knowledge from that data? Are you interested in acting as an enabler for change; using machine learning and artificial intelligence?

Join us at Extenda on our mission to Simplify Shopping and be a part of a world-class team and deliver software and services to assist our clients in taking the lead in the global retail revolution where technology is the key for success.

About the position

Our product suite can easily be adapted for specific business needs with the purpose to create the best possible consumer experience. We enable differentiation through highly configurable and modular products with standard interfaces, ideal for integration to external systems and adaptations of functionality. As a Data Science Analyst at Extenda your main task is build-out our data analytics branch aimed at developing new products and services.

In this role your main purpose is to add depth to our capabilities to explore sets of data with the latest tools; finding and presenting insights to help clients and product managers make informed decisions.

To succeed you need to effortlessly leverage a range of technologies such as SQL, Hadoop, Spark, R, Python etc. You will have the freedom to build the tool-set of your preference and that fits the data at hand, there’s no preferred flavor here. You will also be required to build prototypes and act as the link between product managers and product development. The role has many research elements.

Your responsibilities includes:

  • Finding, gathering, managing data-sets of different shapes and sizes and of course perform exploratory analysis where many but not all will be of transactional nature.
  • Leverage traditional tools like mathematical models and statistics as well as machine learning approaches to answer questions and help us get to where we want to be.
  • With curiosity and great interest, you will be an integral part of developing our new products and concepts.

We are looking for:

We think that you have excellent analytical skills and that you’re able to work independently. You are naturally curious and passionate about data science, you’re both structured and scientific and we hope that you love seeing and proving the patterns others don’t.

To succeed in this role, you need to be open to new methods and tools and to be the one that makes it happen. You’re self-motivated but works best in a team. The necessary retail business understanding is something we believe you will acquire here but if you already have it it’s an advantage.

You have to have deep understanding of your field and eventually the retail world in a way that allows you be creative and be a part of inventing the next generation tools to simplify shopping.

Experience and skills:

The role is cross-disciplinary and you can have several backgrounds to succeed but we think an academic background is important. 

  • Degree in Computer science, Computer engineering, Mathematics, Physics or equivalent. Demonstrable knowledge or work experience can explain a missing degree.
  • Skills in coding, at least in the target data science tools
  • Ability to work well independently in periods is important
  • Ability to communicate with peers and laymen alike.
  • Use of scientific methods are expected
  • Experience from working with various SQL dialects is mandatory
  • Experience from working with Spark, R, Python and the likes is expected

Meritorious experience and skills

  • Experience from working with business intelligence
  • Experience from working with artificial intelligence
  • Experience from working with product development
  • Experience from retail management
  • Any experience you can explain is relevant can come in question
