Fancy building a Data Science function from the ground up? ✨🔨

If you’re a Senior Data Scientist/Lead Data Scientist or a Data Science Manager where you’ve been deploying Machine Learning models into an operational environment to provide real-time, personalised recommendations to customers whilst they shop online – this could be just the Leadership Data Science job for you.

What’s on offer?

Fast-growing, disruptive start-up? ✔️

Opportunity to work for a company who make their business decisions backed by Data? ✔️

You’ll work amongst an established team of over 30 other Data professionals with their own areas of specialism, such as Web Analytics, Data Engineering, Business Intelligence, Data Analysis & Insight, and now they’ve started their Data Science journey – your new department. 📊 📈

What you’ll need:

🌟As a very customer focused business; you’ll design & build multiple data products to enrich the customer experience through customer segmentation, personalisation algorithms & recommendation systems.

🌟Previous experience of building customer segmentation models

🌟You’ve directly managed a team of Data Scientists who are deploying & maintaining REAL-TIME Machine Learning Models

🌟Team management experience; although you won’t be inheriting a huge team initially; you’ll have scope and budget to build your own. You should be someone who loves managing a team rather than a manager who does it because it’s part of the job.

🌟To be proactive in managing relationships with key stakeholders in various business areas whilst learning their objectives.

🌟Be prepared to travel in-frequently, but when you need to as part of this newly created leadership role to different parts of the UK, the Midlands, London and North West to name a few. You’ll be expensed for this.

🌟You’ll need to be comfortable with a 40/40/20 split. 40% strategy, 40% line management, & a remaining 20% of your time still rolling your sleeves up working with the Data.

What to expect in return?

Expect flexible working hours, a laptop/phone & bonus of up-to 15%, plus more. Team builds & days out are also the norm here.
