About This Role
When we buy a piece of fruit at the grocery store today, we know very little about it. When will it be at peak ripeness? How long will it take to spoil? Can I expect it to be tasty, nutritious, fresh? Was the fruit treated with optimal care and with the lowest environmental impact? With Data Science and Apeel’s unique position in the global fresh produce supply chain, the answers to these questions are within reach. We are positioned better now than ever before to have enough traceability to make smart decisions, which can lead to sustainable outcomes that also make good business sense.
As an Apeel Data Scientist, you’ll have the unique opportunity to help improve the produce supply chain. Our team is tasked with cleaning, organizing, and analyzing supply chain data to glean meaningful insights and opportunities, as well as building predictive models to automate and streamline business decision-making. Our Data Scientists routinely work cross-functionally with Biological Sciences, Formulation Sciences, Strategy, Sales, Marketing, Finance, and Software Engineering teams to define and execute projects.
As Associate Director, you will balance technical, managerial, and strategic acumen while leading the team in implementing best practices in data governance, model lifecycle management, and a high-impact product roadmap.
