Job Description

An employer is looking for a Data Analyst for a remote, ongoing contract opportunity. The client is an enterprise grocery store chain and the Data Analyst will be supporting the End to End Fresh Cold Chain Data Team. End to End Fresh is responsible for perishable products like produce, meat, seafood and dairy. This team specifically will be responsible for data related to refrigerated supply chain (Cold Chain). Cold Chain data includes data from temperature sensors, purchase orders, warehousing and transportation routing and location. The overall goal is to use this data to increase the freshness of food at the stores.

The journey of data enabling End to End Fresh will usually follow a path of Analytics to discover improvement opportunities; reporting to allow operations to target improvement and event (real-time) data to participate in operations. A hypothetical example would be:

- Analytics reveals that strawberries are frequently subjected to high temperatures in transit from distribution center to stores. Management knows they have a problem and assigns operations to investigate.

- Reports are given to operations managers to help them investigate and try an operational change like a temp check when the truck leaves the yard. Reports allow them to monitor and evaluate the effectiveness of the change on strawberry freshness.

- The changes might mitigate some instances but not all. So transportation and/or stores are given real time data. This will allow them to be alerted that a truck is en route to the store with a high temperature. They turn the truck around before it even hits the store's loading dock and a replacement order is processed. This saves employee time and speeds up the replenishment process, resulting in fresher strawberries in the store.

This team will have a dedicated Product Manager and will be directly supported by a Scrum Master, Solution Architect and Data Architect.
