EquipmentShare is Hiring a Data Scientist (Operations Research).

EquipmentShare is searching for a Sr Data Scientist specializing in Operations Research (OR) to join our team. This position is fully remote.

Primary Responsibilities

Despite having been fundamentally altered by earlier industrial revolutions, the construction industry has hardly budged with the computer revolution. In fact, since 1970, labor productivity in the US construction industry has actually declined, despite it more than doubling in the rest of the economy. This has contributed to housing shortages and the parlous state of infrastructure in some places, and is sanding the gears of carbon reduction efforts.

We think the industry is ripe for change, and we’re pushing the leading edge of that change with our next generation T3 Platform, the OS for Construction. Through T3, we help contractors to coordinate humans and (increasingly smarter) machines to build more effectively.

As a Sr Data Scientist specialized in OR in our small and quickly growing team, you will play a major role in this effort. In particular, you will

  • Create and enhance fleet management practices across the company through analytical
  • Develop, from scratch, simulation experiments that lead to implemented optimization
    algorithms to solve our complex supply chain problems
  • Assist in identifying key KPIs and metrics to measure our company’s supply chain
  • Help to identify the highest value next opportunities for OR within a big greenfield space,
    work cross-functionally to plan and build, and measure your significant business impact
    via experimentation

  • Competitive compensation packages
  • 401 (k) and company match
  • Health insurance and medical coverage benefits
  • Unlimited paid time off

  • State of the art onsite gym (corporate HQ)/Gym stipend for remote employees
  • Opportunities for career and professional development with conferences, events, seminars, continued education

Our mission to change an entire industry is not easily achieved, so we only hire people who are inspired by the goal and up for the challenge. In turn, our employees have every opportunity to grow with us, achieve personal and professional success and enjoy making a tangible difference in an industry that’s long been resistant to change.
