IKEA is taking huge steps in its digital transformation and our Data & Analytics Customer team is at the forefront of building intelligent systems for data-driven business decisions. For example, we are developing models and tools to answer questions like:

• How can we support our customers to find, explore, and buy relevant IKEA products?

• How do we build models that create value and are aligned with our IKEA values?

• Can we predict individual customers’ interests and behavior?

• What is the ideal personalized inspiration, offer, timing and channel for engaging with each customer?

• How much should and will we be selling of each article over time and which commercial levers should we pull to influence this?

Perhaps you have your own questions to ask? Our ultimate goal is to create a better everyday life for the many people by creating a unique partnership with each customer. To do so, we want to understand our customers, to give customers the most beneficial offerings for them exactly when they need it, and to support them throughout their journey with IKEA in the best way possible.


You will work in Data & Analytics together with other Data Analysts, Data Scientists, Data Engineers, Data Stewards, ML Engineers and Data Architects. Together you will be joining cross-functional teams consisting of colleagues from Technology, Product and Design, that design, implement and deploy products that help to solve these kinds of problems. It will be a mix of product insights, data visualization and writing code – as well as talking with product owners and business stakeholders.

IKEA has long been a global leader in home furnishing. We are proud of our vision to improve the everyday life of the many people. But our industry is quickly changing and we need to adapt to stay competitive.

As part of IKEA’s journey to strengthen our digital capabilities, we are building a Data & Analytics function. This team is working on problems across the company, ranging from customer modeling, pricing, online shopping, visual intelligence to logistics optimization.

We see so many opportunities for what we can accomplish and have the ambition to be a world class team. At the same time, we believe that our work is not just about building models, but also about learning and having fun together.

We can offer you:

• Work on some very interesting problems as described above, and you are encouraged to spot new opportunities or to collaborate with Data Science colleagues in other specialist teams.

• Opportunities to have global impact with your work.

• Flexible and modern tools: we deploy on Google Cloud Platform and we use a lot of open source tools across the board.

• Hardware and OS of your choice.

• A team of great colleagues to learn with and from (with world-class experience across all aspects of Data Science).

• Continuous learning (we aim to spend 20% of our working time on learning).

• Flexible and friendly working environment.

• Relocation support (If Senior) if not already in the area: we are based in southern Sweden, Amsterdam in the Netherlands, and in Madrid, Spain.


Does this sound like your next challenge? IKEA offers an exciting and empowering work environment in a global workplace. And as the world’s leader at life at home, you have exceptional opportunities to grow and develop together with us.
