The Data Science team works closely with engineers, pricing analysts, and the business intelligence team to complement qualitative knowledge of the freight industry with rigor and quantitative insights. We’re currently living in AWS infrastructure including Glue, Redshift, and Lake Formation. You will be expected to autonomously run your own projects, drive business impact, and be a domain expert for teams across the company.
