Flexport is looking for a creative, technically-minded Applied Research Science Intern who is motivated to solve some of the world’s most challenging problems in freight forwarding.
Data is at the heart of our business. As a Data Science Intern, you will evaluate and build analytical solutions into our client and carrier facing freight forwarding products. In collaboration with multidisciplinary teams, you will apply advanced methods to develop operations research/machine learning solutions that deliver data-driven insights and automated decision making. Project assignment will be based on the team's needs and your knowledge and skillsets.
You will own end-to-end delivery of the data science solution over 12 weeks, culminating in delivering and presenting a production-ready solution. The data science team has intern projects covering all Flexport departments, including pricing, experimentation, short-term and long-term planning (e.g., routing and capacity expansion), and applied machine learning (e.g., transit time estimation, forecasting, trade & financial services).
We believe global trade can move the human race forward. That’s why it’s our mission to make global trade easier for everyone. We aim to do this by building the Operating System for Global trade - a strategic model combining advanced technology and data analytics, logistics infrastructure, and supply chain expertise. Flexport today connects almost 10,000 clients and suppliers across 109 countries, including established global brands like Georgia-Pacific as well as emerging innovators like Sonos. Started in 2013, we've raised over $1.3B in funding from SoftBank Vision Fund, Founders Fund, GV, First Round Capital, and Y Combinator. We’re excited about the three big ways we’re moving forward after our recent $1B investment from SoftBank Vision Fund in February 2019.
At Flexport, our ability to fulfill our mission of making global trade easy for everyone relies on having a diverse, dedicated and engaged workforce. That is why Flexport is committed to creating and nurturing an environment where anyone can be their authentic self. All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment regardless of race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age, physical and mental disability, health status, marital and family status, sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, military and veteran status, and any other characteristic protected by applicable law.
