Data Science (Graduation) Internship

About Routescanner

Are you looking for a (graduation) internship which revolves about turning loads of data into valuable insights? We are Routescanner and we are on a mission to make the container logistics world more transparent and sustainable. Get the feeling of real-time impact and experience a new level of being challenged on a day-to-day basis.

We build and run a high-tech platform to support logistical decision making for cargo owners, forwarders & operators. At Routescanner you work on a product that is transforming the way containers are being shipped around the world. The result is a smooth platform where the user is centralised, and that is continuously extended and improved with new features.

About the role

Are you passionate about data and do you enjoy solving logistic puzzles? For a data science internship, we have multiple topics, among which are:

  • User behaviour; Turning the behaviour of thousands of users into valuable insights. E.g., to predict the probability of users returning and their expected behaviour. Or whether their behaviour pattern is suspicious and could indicate misuse of our platform.
  • Schedule reliability; Routescanner receives millions of schedules from operators around the world every day. We need to turn this data, that changes over time, into valuable and interpretable insights which thousands of users will leverage to make their optimal decisions.

You will be working closely with Kim, responsible for our data science since the start of Routescanner, who will guide you through your internship. Besides that, you are surrounded by professionals who love to share their knowledge, allowing you to learn everything about the technical and business side of Routescanner.
