Project Description

We are a Fortune 500 looking for two data scientists who is interested in learning about better ways for food chains / restaurants / and the CPG industry in general with optimizing pricing using algorithms. This project is already underway and the current models are written in SAS. The team needs your help to convert the models into R.

We are looking for someone who not only knows how to convert SAS to R but someone who is curious about learning the math behind the models and is an analytical strategic thinker to figure out the best way to make the transition, offer suggestions for improvement and hope that you’ll work with us on an ongoing basis to develop the capability over time. Our company has had many other companies across different industries interested in using this offering, so it would give you access to a number of high profiled clients if the initial phase of work goes well.

The project would require full-time consulting and potentially run a couple months (~6 months with the potential for extension). US resources are preferred but we are open to international since this would be a remote role.

Please provide:

1. the resume of the resource that will be assigned to this project

2. your familiarity with SAS, R, SPSS and pricing analytics

3. your availability in hours per week

4. the location of the remote resource
