Svitla Systems Inc. is looking for a Senior Data Engineer for a full-time position (40 hours per week) in Poland (Kraków/Katowice/Warszawa/Łódź/Rzeszów).

It is a mixed work mode with some office presence expected, probably 3-4 times per month for teamwork and meetings, to help build teamwork and team spirit - ul. Przy Rondzie 4, 31-547 Kraków

Our client is one of the world’s largest retailers and the largest private employer in the United Kingdom and serves millions of customers weekly in the stores and online. They operate in Hungary, Poland, the Czech Republic, and Slovakia in Europe, offering customers daily value.

The project’s team builds products that power the engine of the Supply Chain that makes sure customers get what products they need when they walk into the client’s store or shop through other channels. They influence product availability through advanced forecasting and proper ordering. It's challenging since it needs to be done while keeping waste reduction and optimal stock holding. It helps keep the operational costs in control and helps the bottom line. The more they save, the more they can pass on to the customers w.r.t the right price.

It’s fun since the client is building better capabilities on newer platforms. It involves a lot of learning since we are transforming forecasting intelligence into algorithms on big data platforms.
