About RELEX Solutions

RELEX Solutions is a leading provider of cutting-edge retail optimization software that’s built for the age of Living Retail, where change is the only constant.

Job Description

We are looking for full-time Data Scientists with different seniority levels to join our RELEX family in Helsinki. With a separate job posting, we are also looking for a person with combinatorial optimizations skills. Your application will be automatically considered to that position as well. 

What you’ll be doing: 

As a Data Scientist in the RELEX Labs team, you will be designing diverse retail planning solutions. In practice this means, for example, building production quality machine learning based demand forecasting models, optimize markdown and promotion planning processes or fine-tuning the delicate balance between product availability and spoilage. You can expect a challenging, but also rewarding environment where most of the time you will be working with things that have not been done before. Luckily you do not need to design the future alone, but rather together with a team of ~15 fellow Data Scientists. 

RELEX is working with the world’s largest retailers, which means that RELEX deals with enormous volumes of data ranging from store transactions and product display information to weather observations and competitor prices. This unique combination of data has still a lot of unexploited potential left to be discovered. That’s why we need you! 

Being part of the RELEX Labs team means that you will need to be able to make decisions with limited information and be comfortable with the fact that most of the new ideas might not work on the first try. The research problems you will face are often vaguely defined and can be solved with many different approaches. Therefore, we expect the applicant to have a versatile problem-solving toolbox equipped with deep and wide general knowledge in mathematics and statistics. With these skills you will drive the design of new products and functionalities in the RELEX software. In addition to data science, you should be comfortable communicating with scientists, engineers, and business stakeholders, both internal and external. 

Career development at RELEX (Labs) 

We offer multiple different paths for career development. You will have an opportunity to e.g.: 

  • take a team-lead position inside RELEX Labs or elsewhere in the growing organisation.  
  • advance data science expertise along our expert career track. 
  • take wider responsibility in specific RELEX’s product area.

What you’ll bring to the table: 

  • Proficiency in utilizing code for analyzing data, building statistical models and developing high-performing algorithms. 
  • Good communication skills in English.
  • Passion for solving real-world problems. 
  • Ability to learn new things fast.  
  • Studies from a relevant field and/or relevant working experience.

What we consider as an advantage: 

  • Knowledge in: 
    • Bayesian statistics 
    • Optimization, especially combinatorial optimization 
  • Previous working experience with:
    • Cloud tools and services 
      • E.g Azure, Snowflake, MLOps 
    • Retail and/or e-commerce 
    • Product/software development 
    • Agile working practices 

What we offer: 

  • Fighting for the Climate - Work in a company where we aim to do our part in removing waste and minimizing unnecessary transportation from retailing. 
  • Company culture that fosters learning, high ambition, responsibility and psychological safety. Our culture and values guide our everyday work and make us proud relexians, they are not empty sentences. 
  • Tons of unexplored data and lots of learning and growing opportunities in a rapidly growing international software company. 
  • Flexible work hours and a possibility to work remotely. 
  • Occupational healthcare provided by Heltti and an extensive IF Health Insurance. 
  • A gym at the office and a lot of other activities: yoga, HIIT, floorball, badminton, brewing... 
  • Mobile phone and home internet benefit. 
  • Support for the families: a sick childcare service, a paid day off when your child starts the school for the first time, flexible work arrangements.
