Data Scientist – Manchester

Data Scientist | Manchester | £50,000 – £60,000 per year

I am working with an industry leading, innovative & growing FinTech organisation based in the heart of Manchester, who are looking for an experienced Quantitative Data Scientist to help them to support other analysts to build tools, models & applications to make them more efficient.

Working in a fairly smaller sized team, you’ll need to really hold your own and come from a background of mentoring/coaching others so you can really throw yourself in at the deep end. Data & Analytics is the heart of what they do, so they will look someone to have the same outlook & attitude as them.

It’s an exciting time to join my client, not only have they put more bums on seats over the last few months, but they have also integrated clear progression plans for their staff to get stuck in to.

Skills required;

  • Python
  • You will ideally have the knowledge/experience of working with FinTech/Investment Banking organisations
  • You’ll have a degree in the following: Computer Science, Mathematics, Statistics etc

This role will focus on building models & tools specific to the organisation; using your background knowledge & experience, as well as using Python on the daily!

  • You’ll take some of the work from the Investment Analysts, who are doing it all at the moment – they are spending too much time building software & models to get their own analysis, as opposed to having someone to deep dive into the technical part of the role, to pass the analysis onto them…
  • You’ll manage the application of Decision Science techniques; you’ll create and maintain models and above all you’ll get excited about the investments you make.

You will be joining a new kid on the block in the FinTech space, they are heavily backed, and they are going places.

A small headcount, a lot of ownership, autonomy, and freedom to play with modern tech to solve problems. These folks will invest in you, the team, and the tech; and they are completely open to hearing your ideas.

In return, you will receive the following:

  • Competitive based salary between £50,000 to £60,000
  • Bonus
  • Pension scheme
  • City centre location with flexible working days/hours
