Lead Data Scientist

SALARY - £70k - £80k plus excellent benefits

LOCATION - Remote, then Central London


Having built most of the existing Marketing Sciences function, we can vouch for the exceptional quality of talent this agency has managed to attract; not just because of the complexity of data science projects on offer, but also because of the vision of their Marketing Sciences Director. He is passionate about training and development and has built a strong culture of collaboration and innovation. Every single person we’ve placed, LOVES their job and more importantly, LOVES their team! The work life balance is excellent and there is an adult working environment where you are trusted to deliver and given the freedom to manage your own time.


In this role, you will act as a Lead within a team of Data Scientists, but you can also apply your advanced analytical skills across a variety of cutting edge data science projects including heat mapping, digital automation and attribution, NLP, machine learning, whilst developing skills in people management, should you so wish.

You will work closely with huge, often, global brands to shape analytical roadmaps, scoping data science and insights projects, leading on delivery as well as getting your hands dirty with high level, complex analytics yourself.

We want Hackers, Data Scientist leaders who can add value through bleeding edge techniques and methodologies, all whilst applying an acute commercial and strategic lens. I’m afraid to say experience with predictive modelling and segmentation builds is not enough here, we need people who have something a little different about their background. You will possibly have a data engineering edge to your experience, will be highly proficient in cloud based technologies, maybe you’ve used some special analytical techniques such as gravity modelling or catchment analysis, even worked with geospatial data….we want to hear from you!

Advanced programming skills in Python are required, as well as an all round problem solving approach.

You will contribute to pitches and presenting simple and compelling solutions to complex client problems. You should be highly skilled in the latest data science techniques in order to inspire and lead from the front on a daily basis, QA-ing work and leading on the best methodologies and approaches to take.

Skills and experience required:

  • Educated to degree level in a numerate subject; Mathematics, Statistics, Engineering, Physics, Chemistry, Economics, Machine Learning, Computer Science etc.
  • A background in data science; (possibly) data engineering, (definitely) machine learning and AI, ideally within a marketing environment
  • Strong programming experience with either Python AND SQL as a minimum
  • Ability to gather and scope requirements for a variety of analytical projects
  • Ability to engage with senior level client stakeholders and operate at a senior level on projects
