SUMMARY:

Infor Dynamic Science Labs is a data science team that works to infuse mathematical modeling and optimization across the entire suite of software products at Infor. On any given day, we can be working in manufacturing, healthcare, distribution, sports, retail, and e-commerce, meeting with customers from around the globe. Our team works on problem solving from beginning to end: from meeting with customers during the problem definition phase all the way to sitting side by side with development as they implement and release production software. Depending on the situation, our projects can range in time from a few months to several years. In all cases, we are guided by our team s mission statement: Do science. Be transformative. Create value.

Science Analysts from Dynamic Science Labs have Master s or Bachelor s degrees in quantitative fields.

Science Analysts also work closely with development teams to help with QA of science application implementations.
