Your tasks and responsibilities

As a Data Scientist at DHL Consulting, you will work in an unique setup with our Consultants to solve concrete business problems. Being part of a global team, you will work collaboratively to apply methods such as time series analysis, operations research methods, and machine learning algorithms (e.g. trees, neural networks) to answer a wide range of business problems. Analytics-related problems may relate to the DPDHL Group, its customers, or DHL Consulting’s own business. Examples of these include but are not limited to, developing machine learning tools for route optimization and freight rates’ prediction, sales analytics, demand forecasting for inventory optimization.

Specifically, you will work on analytical frameworks for data analytics projects based on an understanding of concrete business requirements and operational processes. You will conduct data analyses, develop mathematical models, build dashboards, and create prototypes. You look into data for patterns to “let the data speak.” You will learn how to interpret modeling results in a business context and discuss these with your business stakeholders. You will sharpen your data skills by running quick analyses and present your outcomes to consultants and clients. To further incorporate data-driven decision-making in operations, you will consolidate the methodological skills and knowledge acquired from completed projects. Be part of a group that is making a shift towards automation and data – “Build tomorrow”!

You will also use your expertise to support project acquisition by identifying new strategic application areas, use cases or products by applying innovative data analytics methods and technologies.
