In Maersk Tankers we have set out to improve our general impact on the planet by focusing on lowering the CO2 emissions from the fleet we have under management. To help achieve this, we are increasing our focus on utilising data science to improve our business by enabling us to see the effect of decisions and bring clarity and simplicity to a complex and fast-moving world. For this initiative, we are looking for candidates interested in building applications rooted in analytics and data science/ML. Currently, we have applications to analyse vessel performance from performance data collected from the vessels, run simulations of the vessels in our fleet under different conditions, and systems to predict trading patterns for use in our chartering department. We are looking to expand with more applications for analysis and decision support, especially for areas that can lower CO2 emission.

We offer
Maersk Tankers offers an attractive career with the possibility of continuous professional and personal development. We focus on diversity and equal opportunities, we work in an informal and flexible space, striving to provide an optimal work-life balance.

Key responsibilities
We have set out to build a diverse department founded on collaboration, trust, and open dialog. The department's responsibility will be to analyse the business together with subject matter experts to identify areas that could be strengthened by analytics and subsequently suggest, implement, and run applications.

In your daily work, you will be a part of a cross functional team consisting of a product owner, a subject matter expert, developers, and data engineers. Each team will work on multiple, related projects governed by the product owner. 

Daily work is also explorative, so a candidate must be curious and see learning new tools and technologies as a natural part of their work.

Maersk Tankers will support ongoing learning by attending conferences and granting access to learning tools and programmes. You will also be given the opportunity to work remotely 40% of the time.

  • Perform problem analysis
  • Implement models for data analysis 
  • Design and implement data pipelines
  • Expose data via APIs
  • Support the product owner in planning and prioritisation
  • Undertake task refinement 

We do not have rigid roles, so there will be opportunities to overlap other roles if desired and needed.

The ideal candidate would be someone with a relevant education in applied mathematics, computer science or software engineering and 2-3 years of experience in:

  • Agile methodologies
  • Working in cross functional teams
  • Building applications in Python, Java or another mainstream language

  • Databases/SQL
  • Kubernetes/Docker
