Information about the position 

The Fulfilment domain at Vinted Go is responsible for operating two specialised hubs in London and Hamburg where the offline-verification service (i.e. verifying whether an item is a counterfeit or not) for high-value fashion takes place. 

Additionally, the Fulfilment domain oversees the entire logistical process surrounding this verification process (e.g. admitting and re-packaging the item), ensuring a smooth and efficient workflow from start to finish.

As a Decision Scientist in this young domain, you will be part of a cross-functional product team working alongside Product Managers, Engineers and Designers. You will report to the team lead of Data Science & Analytics Vinted Go Fulfilment.
