Why RI?

We believe we can reinvent retail operations through advanced analytics, growing sales and profitability for our global retail and consumer goods clients.

What do we do?

At Retail Insight, we have built a suite of innovative retail execution analytics products trusted by some of the world’s leading retail and consumer goods companies including Walmart, Woolworths, Diageo and Danone.

We provide head office, stores and suppliers with data-driven insights that direct action and capture value.

Your role will be focused on providing mathematical and quantitative subject matter expertise to ensure successful delivery of our projects, and will include:

  • Defining the quantitative element of projects, for internal R&D and for external clients.
  • Contributing to the choice of quantitative and analytical techniques used to deliver projects.

  • Reviewing the latest mathematical trends and opportunities for method transfer and adoption/inclusion.
  • Communicating with both RI staff and clients in technical and non-technical language.
  • Contributing to our analytical problem solving and product development approaches across multiple projects.
  • Helping shape and grow the analytical capabilities of the total business.

What does it take to be successful in this role?

Requirements:

You will have, or be expected to attain, a PhD in a numerical discipline such as applied or pure mathematics, statistics, physics, or computer science, and may have experience in your first role or be carrying out post-doctoral research in a top-tier academic institute.
