Data Scientist required by an organisation in the North West who are investing heavily in their data analytics capabilities in 2018.
If you want to work with Python and various sophisticated Machine Learning models on a daily basis and join a completely greenfield site with a scary amount of untapped data, read on.
You will also be joining a recently appointed Head of Data & Analytics who is keen to have someone in his team that he can work closely with, train up and develop in to a high calibre Data Scientist.
As this is a fairly new area for the company, there is going to be a lot of initial grunt work to understand where they are at in relation to their data. You will help the new Head of Data Science find, scrape and collate data from various sources across the organisation to then make a start on making sense of it all.
After the initial collation of the data, you will then play a key role in developing a strategy for the implementation of an advanced analytics platform across the entire product offering.
From an experience and technical perspective, the manager is happy to consider pure graduates from an MSc, PhD level or more experienced candidates as he has a track record of training people up in his previous role.
Tech wise, he's most comfortable with Python in terms of programming so is likely to continue that in the new role. However, he's equally happy for people with strong SQL, Matlab or R skills to apply as he appreciates the similarities and how easy it can be to cross-train.
From a Data Science perspective, we're looking for people with a real interest in most, if not all of the following areas:
** Machine Learning
** Statistics / Mathematics
** Artificial Intelligence
** Neural Networks
** Python / R / SQL / Matlab
A successful organisation with sites throughout the UK and the potential for international expansion in early 2018. You'll be working from their corporate HQ in the North West (Stoke), with the opportunity to work from home after an initial bedding in phase.
Your new company boast some of the world's biggest companies as their key customers. This sounds like a big claim that you often read on recruitment adverts. However, in this case it is true.
The salary on offer for this role is very much dependent on experience and what you are bringing to the table. They have a very rough range of £30-45k, however, we can go above this if they see an obvious benefit or if you can bring something extra to the role.
We can hold initial interviews pretty flexibly. Due to a couple of geographical / logistical restraints we will probably look at an initial Skype or phone call with a visit to the office following that.
