£50,000 - £60,000 per annum - Insight & Analytics - London
Ref: 115 Date Posted: Monday 16 Oct 2017

Innovation is at the heart of this top travel organisation, and the complexity of their customer data and desire to be data driven has generated the need to employ you, a storyteller of Data - AKA - a Data Scientist with R/Python programming skills, and previous experience of applying Machine Learning techniques in a production / commercial environment!

This Data Scientist position will see you contributing to the development of new Data Products whilst applying machine learning techniques to maximise internal marketing data and give real insight to the key stakeholders. This includes analysing huge and very complex datasets - and with over 30 million customers every year, you're going to have a lot of data to work with! 

Your new team:

  • There isn’t a Data Science team at present, which you will either love or hate. It's worth noting that this is a complete Greenfield data science function, a blank canvas for you to really get your name to something! 
  • You will report straight into senior management (Head of) and we’re working on building a team of three other Data Scientists to work alongside you.
  • You will take complete ownership of your own innovation and design and develop machine learning algorithms, statistical models, as well as data analysis and insight delivery.

Your new company:

  • They’re big – so if you’re after a start-up these guys aren’t for you.
  • This department is growing and there’s a lot of work to do, so if you like the idea of being part of a large, stable company with set processes in place - but being sat in a smaller / family feel division as part of this; it would be perfect for you.

About you and the skills you'll need:

  • A proven Data scientist (most recent role) with at least 3-4 year's worth of experience
  • Hands on with R, Python, other open source programming language
  • Experience of creating/applying different Machine Learning techniques to large sets of information

To apply:

In return you will receive a competitive basic salary + a comprehensive benefits package, best of all you will be working with one of the worlds most recognised organisations in their field!

To be considered, hit apply and I’ll be in touch to go through your experience in more detail and discuss the opportunity & client in more detail with you.
