Convoy, one of the fastest growing startups in the U.S., is transforming the $800 billion trucking industry. We offer the world's largest companies the best option for moving their freight through our network of thousands of technology-connected trucking companies.
The Data Science team is at the core of Convoy’s platform. We build the models that power freight pricing, shipment offer relevance, auction bidding strategy, and other core services. The breadth of the problems space is huge, spanning machine learning, optimization, metric definition, econometrics, and analytics domains. And we have only begun to dig into the difficult and diverse problems in our two-sided marketplace.

At Convoy, we are a highly aligned team that operates in a dynamic environment and pivots where needed to focus on what matters most. You will collaborate with Research Scientists, Product Managers, and Engineers across the Product organization and interact with stakeholders across the company. You will be responsible for defining core business logic in our data warehouse, developing and disseminating insights to drive product decisions, conducting experiments, and building analytic models.
As a Data Scientist on our Supply team, you will play a critical role in generating insights and experiments that direct our supply operations and product teams. You’ll embed fully into the business to develop a deep understanding of day-to-day operations and bring that perspective into a close partnership with our central Data Science and Marketplace Growth teams.
If you are curious minded and are passionate about joining a company that is making data science and analytics a fundamental part of our success, join us.
You have the following experience:
- Degree in economics, statistics, business analytics, operations research, a natural science or equivalent quantitative subject.
- Experience in Business Intelligence or Data Scientist - Analytics roles (candidates with substantially more experience are strongly encouraged to apply).
- Experience with SQL and R/Python in dynamic business environments.
- Ability to break down high level business problems into concrete analytical solutions.
- Excellent communicator that can flow across a wide range of partners (product, engineering, sales, etc).
Nice to have skills and experience:

- ETL pipeline experience.
- Experience with Tableau or other similar data visualization tool.
