Master Thesis Intern - Strategy & Analytics (m/w/d)
Location: Düsseldorf, North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany

Do you like solving puzzles? Picnic offers you the opportunity to write your Master Thesis for about 4 - 6 months in an innovative start-up culture where everything you do matters. With a data-driven approach and an incredible service, Picnic strives to make grocery shopping simple, fun, and affordable for everyone. Known for our just-in-time supply-chain and unique last-mile delivery strategy, we have become one of the fastest-growing companies in Europe!

From perfecting our delivery routes, forecasting our growth or coming up with new strategies to reduce waste - there are great opportunities for unique projects. As one of our thesis-interns, you’ll be part of a dedicated team and take ownership of your ideas. Moreover, many of our current Analysts started as Interns at Picnic! We believe that we can grow together and challenge ourselves over endless opportunities in the online grocery industry. 

Where you fit in

From day one, you start coordinating a personal project. You’ll find yourself working alongside our data wizards, treated as a full-time employee, and receiving invaluable experience in a challenging environment. With your foot in the door, you can create a solid platform from which to embark on a career. 

Our current Thesis Interns work on innovative topics like:

  • Rethinking employee scheduling algorithms in operations under uncertainty of workload and no-shows
  • Building a model for identifying differences of customer behaviors and find the best ways to proactively address them
  • Deriving the factors that drive Shopper outflow. Improve retention by rethinking the selection process and introducing operational rules

We constantly have new and interesting topics evolving and will try to find the best fit for you - however, you can of course also pitch your own idea for a thesis! The more we grow, the higher is the variety of topics you can take over by joining our full-time Analysts in Fulfillment, Distribution, Trading or Growth team.
