Data Science Internship

London, England, United Kingdom · Data


A well-funded independent company, with ambitious plans to expand, Gousto is looking for a Data Science Intern on our Data Science team. There’s never been a better time to be a part of what we're building. If you enjoy working alongside smart thinkers, with extraordinary drive, passion and talent, then apply now!

Gousto, is one of the most dynamic and fast-growing start-ups in the UK. We're a recipe kit company on a mission to help families enjoy good food. We believe home cooking is important, so we’ve made it simple. We take the hassle out of planning, shopping and cooking, by delivering weekly meals with the ingredients and recipes ready to cook, so there’s no more ‘what’s for dinner’ panic.

Gousto has a strong data culture: we believe that data is the voice of our customers and therefore it is an integral part of how we make decisions and innovate. To ensure we live up to this statement, we have a team of highly skilled data scientist, data analysts and data engineers.

Over the last 5 years, we've built up state-of-the-art analytics pipeline, using AWS services (Redshift, Lambda, Kinesis, Hadoop etc.) and open-source projects, e.g. Snowplow Analytics, Airflow etc. The pipeline enables us to collect very granular data about our customers’ behaviour and our business processes.

The data science team's primary mission is to build tools that will improve our business processes and offering to our customers. In pursuit of this mission we tackle a diverse range of problems with a direct impact on the business. Examples include optimising process flows in our fulfilment centre and generating highly personalised recipe recommendations for our customers.

As an intern on the data-science team you will work on a well-scoped project to extend and improve one of our existing data products. This means you will get hands-on experience working with our data platform and developing advanced machine-learning and optimisation techniques.

We have big plans for the future, hence we are looking for creative thinkers with a quantitative mindset to help us drive the business and disrupt the online grocery market. Expect to dive into a complex problem alongside amazing colleagues and help us build the solutions that will have significant impact on the product and our customers.
