We have an exciting opportunity for an experienced Operational Research Data Scientist to join our growing Data Science team, where you will have the opportunity to work on projects across operations optimisation which includes workforce, transportation, warehousing, ordering, store operations and network optimisation
Our team focuses on modelling sophisticated business problems and deploying data products at scale, flexing their skills across all areas of our business. Personalising our customers’ experience across all touchpoints, online and in store to make our supply chain, transport, and delivery operations more efficient. These changes are good for our customers and, with millions of customers across several countries, good for the planet, too. But just because we work on a big scale, doesn’t mean things move slowly; change happens fast here. That means you’ll see the impact you’ve made within weeks.
Our team are passionate about supporting you in your personal and career development so as well as on desk training and support and knowledge sharing with others, 10% of your working week will be dedicated to learning and personal development. There's also plenty of opportunity to attend and speak at external and internal events. Furthermore, we have a great work-life balance, team days and relaxed but engaging culture.
This role can be based out of either our London (Farringdon) office or Welwyn Garden City office. At Tesco we offer hybrid working so you will spend 2 days a week in the office and the rest of the time working from home.
We are looking for ambitious individuals with a mix of mathematical optimisation, programming and statistics skills. The role requires that you have an extensive background in Operational Research.
We offer excellent benefits that help make Tesco a great place to work! These include but are not limited to:
Our vision at Tesco is to become every customer’s favourite way to shop, whether they are at home or out on the move. Our core purpose is “Serving our customers, communities and planet a little better every day”. Serving means more than a transactional relationship with our customers. It means acting as a responsible and sustainable business for all stakeholders, for the communities we are part of, and for the planet.
We are proud to have an inclusive culture at Tesco where everyone truly feels able to be themselves. At Tesco, we not only celebrate diversity, but recognise the value and opportunity it brings. We’re committed to creating a workplace where differences are valued, and make sure that all colleagues are given the same opportunities. We’re a big business with diverse working patterns and many business areas which means that we can find something that works for you. Everyone is welcome at Tesco.
We have recently announced that we are moving to a more blended working week – combining office and remote working. Our offices continue to be where we connect, collaborate and innovate. Talk to us about how this can work for you.
