Intern - Data

The Programme

At Teleport, our mission is to make it easy and seamless to move goods, and e-commerce anywhere in Southeast Asia, and beyond. We believe trade is an enabler for both businesses and consumers, and we are opening up our products, and infrastructure to make it as easy for the single merchant or the largest companies to transport things quickly, and painlessly. It should simply work, like magic. 

Backed by AirAsia - the world’s best low-cost carrier 11 times running with the largest network in Southeast Asia, we transport cargo to 100+ cities across Asia and are at the frontlines of this large (US$10+ billion), but backward space.  

We are focused on building a logistics infrastructure for the modern world - using data to enable the physical movement of goods, delivering a same-day experience as standard for everyone, and investing to disrupt ourselves before someone else does.  

To keep up with Teleport’s growing list of exciting business opportunities, we are looking for an outstanding individual who thrives on big challenges, thinks creatively and analytically to solve hard problems, and consistently delivers great results despite the odds to fill the position of Intern Data Scientist.  

You will be part of the Data Team specializing in Data Analytics, Data Engineering, Data Science, and Operation Intelligence reporting directly to the Team Lead. You will be based in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
