The M&S Food Data Science team was set up in April 2018. Since our inception it has grown rapidly both in the number of team members and in the areas across the business where we are involved and making an impact. Our long-term goal is to build a framework of sophisticated machine learning models which can optimise the entire food supply chain.
We have built a number of models for which we have trialled the outputs and demonstrated their business value. We would now like to scale up these models across the food estate. In order to do this, we need to productionise our analytical pipelines. This has two aspects: (1) working with our IT data team to set up automated data extract, transformation, and loading processes and (2) model deployment within applications and integration within other business systems. As a data engineer within the Food Data Science team, you will lead on developing our capabilities in this area.
