Container Shipping: An industry with huge potential to make a difference

90% of all goods globally are transported through a container. The largest container vessels are 400 meters long and can transport 20,000 containers at a time. The container shipping industry is the back-bone and enabler of global trade, but it is struggling. At its core the industry is fundamentally inefficient: 50% of all container vessels globally are delayed coming into port, and key planning processes are done manually on a global scale. This leads to high operational costs, lost revenue, and unnecessarily high greenhouse gas emissions. At Portchain, we work with our customers to reduce operational complexity and optimize planning through software and cutting-edge analytics.

The role

Portchain is seeking a talented Advanced Analytics Engineer to join our analytics team that uses data, mathematical modeling, machine learning, and optimization to help our users get full transparency on their operations and make better decisions

You will work with the analytics team to prototype advanced features and integrate them into our products. You will ensure that features are robust and reliable for use in live operations by interfacing with the software engineering team.

You are analytically minded and enjoy working with data and algorithms. At the same time, you understand what it takes to build high quality software that is reliable and maintainable.

Portchain is an exciting fast-growth company where the chosen candidate will work with an incredible team on applications with a global impact.

Tasks and Responsibilities

  • Analyze data sources both quantitatively and visually to estimate the quality of the data and extract insights

  • Build prototypes of advanced analytics-powered features

  • Design and build production level data pipelines that transform and combine data from multiple sources

  • Integrate advanced features into our application stack and ensure we use the highest engineering standards

Role Requirements

  • Master degree or PhD in computer science or another computational field e.g. operations research or machine learning

  • Experience with building and evaluating models and algorithms

  • Strong programming skills, preferably in Python

  • Experience with delivering production standard software

  • Skilled at working with SQL databases and large datasets

  • Experience with deploying machine-learning models to production is a plus

  • Able to communicate insights from data to team members

  • Work on-site in our Copenhagen office or remote

About Portchain

Portchain (www.portchain.com) is a Danish startup founded in 2017 by three McKinsey alums with the ambition to solve the hardest planning problems in container shipping through software and industrial analytics. We apply cutting edge machine learning and optimization through an industry leading customer experience to container carriers and terminals to optimize their key planning processes and create a step-change in productivity.

Portchain’s customers include several global top-5 companies, served by our quickly growing 15 people strong international team. In addition, Portchain has closed a multi-million dollar seed round together with prominent investors, and have received several prestigious grants e.g., from the Danish government through their Innovation Fund, and from the European Union through Horizon 2020 together with 50 other companies out of more than 1,600 applications.

    We are passionate about development and enjoy clean code, continuous deployments and regular integration.

    We believe that automation and tooling play a critical role in software development.

    ABOUT YOU

    • You love clean code. You understand that writing beautiful and readable code is the key to building a great product, and you are able to follow industry best practices.

    • You understand the importance of receiving feedback. You use code reviews to improve yourself and to share your expertise with other members of the team.

    • You enjoy building and developing new features as much as bug fixing.

    • You are self-organised and can work autonomously.

    • You have exquisite attention to detail, and you’re comfortable learning about new technologies and systems.

    • Work with cross-functional teams across the company to build new features at large-scale.

    • Improve engineering standards, tooling, and processes.

    • Think about systems and services and write high-quality code. We work in Python, however, languages can be learned: we care much more about your general engineering skill than knowledge of a particular language or framework.

    • You will contribute to evolving legacy code on our brand-new back-end stack.

    • All of these run smoothly in Docker containers on AWS.

    REQUIREMENTS

    • 5+ years of professional software development experience using Python
