Applications for summer 2021/22 have now closed

Quantiful is a tech start up and global leader in AI Forecasting delivered through our SaaS Platform ‘QU’.

At Quantiful, we want to do our part to make better use of the world’s precious resources – for now and for future generations.

Waste not, want not, is our purpose. We believe that with the data, tools and talent now available this is more achievable than ever, but it isn’t happening because too many organizations are continuing to look back for answers not forward and are not taking concrete steps to change.

To solve this we have developed the world’s most innovative SaaS product, QU, which uses our analytics platform leveraging data from many sources, from macroeconomic to social media and search.

This data is used to predict demand, consumer trends that helps our clients make better decisions to minimise waste. Our industry-leading experts use advanced algorithms and machine learning techniques not to mention a cutting-edge technology stack.

Working with Quantiful would mean supporting our ongoing delivery of forecasts and software to improve planning outcomes for large enterprises around the world to achieve our purpose- waste not, want not.

We are looking for exceptional students to join our high performing team over summer 21/22 as either interns (400 hours) or in a permanent graduate position.

These positions form an integral part of our business and have added substantial value to Quantiful in the past, so we look to continue this important program.

We are looking for a bunch of smart and cheerful students who can take on responsibility and can also enjoy a relaxed Friday evening with the team.

The graduate position is only available to students graduating with a Masters degree or higher. If you are graduating with another degree, the intern position is still available and potentially leads to a full-time position.

Apply for one or more of the following positions:

  • Data Science
  • Data Engineering
  • Software Engineering

For each of the above roles we are looking for:

  • Strong academic performance
  • Strong communication skills, with a good sense of humour
  • Curiosity and passion for problem solving using data and machine learning
  • Potential of becoming a multi-year intern, or as in many cases a permanent employee of Quantiful
