Set up own development environment, gain a working knowledge of the main tools that the team uses (Gurobi, Looker, Snowflake, Confluence, Jira, Git, AWS, Docker), and do a guided tour (supplemented with self-guided exploration) of UDP to gain a basic understanding of the most important data tables.
Understand the main business tradeoffs and identify reasonable opportunities for optimization in one of Indigo’s business units (e.g., Marketplace offer-bid matching, trip building in Indigo Transport, FOS placement in Indigo Carbon).
Contribute to a mathematical or ML model that addresses a relevant business problem (e.g., an extension to our freight pricing model to include seasonality, or a model for optimizing the placement of agronomists); summarize the model contributions in a well-written report that clearly states the assumptions and results; present the results to team members and be receptive to feedback.
Gain a thorough understanding of Indigo’s main businesses, purpose, and values, as well as how OR can help achieve its mission/goals.
