  • Continuously look for ways to reduce shrink in our retail partnerships

Responsibility Area: Insights

  • Influence internal and external teams to match our sales and distribution decisions with insights from demand planning
  • Leverage data to drive decision making in areas outside of forecasting and partnerships, for example in core customer retention projects 

Qualifications:

  • Experience working with data science tools and packages preferably within Python or R required
