Junior Data Scientist – Guildford

Junior Data Scientist | Guildford | £35,000 – £45,000 

Innovation and modernisation is at the heart of this end-user organisation, and the complexity of their product data and focus to be data driven has generated the need to employ you, a storyteller of Data – AKA – a Data Scientist with R or 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 their predictions across the EU market for these said products, whilst giving insight to key internal stakeholders. This includes analysing huge and very complex datasets – and given the size/volumes of their data across multiple platforms and businesses, you won’t ever be bored!

Your new team:

This is an established Data Science function where you’ll be joining a team of 5 other Data Scientists and their Head of Department. They’re all at different levels with varying skills, an environment & tea who really value knowledge-sharing.

You’ll take complete ownership of your own innovation and design and develop machine learning algorithms, statistical models, as well as data analysis & insight delivery to answer questions to real business problems.

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.
