Data Scientist II - Uber Freight

Data Analyst, Data Science
Chicago, Illinois |
San Francisco, California

The Load Logistics Data Science team at Uber Freight supports all of the teams, products and processes used by UF to manage its internal operations. Specifically, we support five product charters: Load Management (the tools used by internal ops teams to manage their work), Load Intel (the tools that enable us to track freight), Accessorials (tools and processes to automate incidental fees that arise when shipping freight), Money (tools and processes to ensure timely and accurate invoicing and payments), and Appointment Scheduling (tools and processes to scheduling pick-up and drop-off appointments for all loads brokered by UF).

Data Scientists on the team partner closely with product and business stakeholders to develop the right metrics for understanding the business and how to improve our operations. When applicable, they follow up on suggested improvements by designing, fielding, and analyzing experiments to measure impact. They also partner closely with our Data Engineering team to develop and maintain production data pipelines. Finally, they partner with data scientists on the team and throughout UF to develop machine learning models that increase the efficiency of our Load Logistics stakeholders. There are opportunities to work across several different areas in the Load Logistics space, including several high priority projects flagged by UF leadership (e.g., improved appointment scheduling automation, improved sourcing of carriers through the Capacity Engine project, and more!).
