We are currently looking for an expert data analyst, scientist, or experienced backend developer who can build a sales forecast distribution tool using only open source libraries or frameworks which will be integrated with our Java backend.
Based on historical sales order data for some customers and some products as well as monthly sales quantity forecasts per customer and per product for a selected forecast period (e.g., 18 months), you need to produce software that generates a meaningful daily distribution of monthly sales forecasts for each month of the forecasting period. The proposed method/software needs to be able to distribute all monthly sales forecasts including those for new customers and new products. The resulting forecast consists of sales forecasts per customer and per product and takes into account historical/expected order size, order frequency, and delivery days for the forecasting period. In other words, the task is about developing an approach how to best distribute monthly sales quantities to certain days of a month with a high likelihood that the customer will order (again).
Out of scope: It’s not your job to generate a new monthly forecast from scratch based on past sales order data!
Please have a look at the attached PDF for detailed information!
If you are interested in this task, please provide the following:
1) A specific description of your method/approach to solve the task (two to five paragraphs, no more than one page).
2) References to similar projects you successfully completed.
3) The technology stack you would like to use for this task. Please indicate what components of the stack you have previously used and to what extent.
4) A rough estimate on how long it would take you to get a prototype up and running as well as your total estimate to complete the task.
5) Your hourly rate and your availability.
We inform you once you have been selected for an introductory skype call to discuss additional details of the task. When selected, ideally, you would start right after the job has been assigned to you.
We are happy to hear from you and to get your feedback!
