About the role
At Tesco, our Data Science team focuses on modelling complex business problems and deploying data products at scale. Our work spans across multiple areas including physical stores, online, supply chain, marketing and Clubcard, where we encourage rotation amongst our Data Scientists so they can gain expertise in different subjects.

We work on several domains and problem types: online, pricing, security, fulfilment, distribution, property, IoT and computer vision are just some. Our team members spend 10% of their week on learning and personal development. Multiple academic collaborations enrich the team expertise; knowledge-sharing events are regular. Furthermore, we have got a great work-life balance, team days and relaxed but engaging culture.
You will be responsible for

This is a hands-on position where you will need to leverage your analytical mindset to find solutions to complex problems. As either a Data Scientist or Senior Data Scientist, you will need to understand difficult business problems and prototype solutions with minimal support. Apply, modify and design algorithms and mathematical models to solve business problems is a core component of the role. Our data scientists will need to be able to validate, document and present the solution approaches and performances, as well as communicate complex solutions in a clear, understandable way to non-experts. Data Scientists are also responsible for promoting data science across Tesco and promote Tesco across the external Data Science community. Finally, as a Data Scientist or Senior Data Scientist, you will be expected to drive innovation and take ownership of aspects of the project development, help the Principal and Lead Scientists and the Product Managers manage the relationships with the business stakeholders and mentor/supervise junior members of the team and/or interns.

You will need
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. A track record in designing and modifying advanced exact, heuristic, or metaheuristic algorithms is essential. You should be enthused to apply these techniques in a commercial or industrial setting, and encourage collaboration and communication between teams. Project and stakeholder management experience is preferred.

An ideal candidate will have a scientific mentality with the ability to ask the right questions, as well as answer them. A doctoral degree in an area of operational research or similar equivalent industrial experience is preferable, as well as a solid understanding of mathematics and statistical principles. Finally, strong programming skills are essential (Java and Python are preferred) as well as familiarity with software engineering best practices (such as version control, OOP, unit testing, CI/CD) and cloud technologies.

In order to enable our vision, we strive to simplify operations for our Colleagues, Partners & Vendors to enable efficient trade.
