Job Description

SCIENTIST

CAMBRIDGE, MA

SUMMARY:

Infor Dynamic Science Labs is a data science team that works to infuse mathematical modeling and optimization across the entire suite of software products at Infor.On any given day, we can be working in manufacturing, healthcare, distribution, sports, retail, and e-commerce, meeting with customers from around the globe. Our team works on problem solving from beginning to end: from meeting with customers during the problem definition phase all the way to sitting side by side with development as they implement and release production software.Depending on the situation, our projects can range in time from a few months to several years.In all cases, we are guided by our team's mission statement: Do science. Be transformative. Create value.

Scientists from Dynamic Science Labs have advanced degrees in quantitative fields.We have a shared goal: to apply our extensive training and passion for problem solving to solve challenging real-world problems.We want to see our algorithm designs and ideas move from the white board and prototype phase to actual recommendations and science-based software that people are happy to use in their day-to-day lives.Our Scientists work both with Infor's customers and product teams across the company.We are always learning about new applications and opportunities to apply our talents, and Scientists are free to use whatever mathematical approaches make the most sense for the problem at hand.

While day-to-day activities can vary widely, Scientists are generally responsible for performing analysis on large data sets, translating business problems into mathematical models, collating and explaining results to varied audiences (internal and external), and taking responsibility for the analytical integrity of our solutions. While Scientists are typically not expected to define the scope of a design, they are required to both plan and execute the design. Scientists also work closely with development teams who take our science designs and implement them into production code.
