Are you an experienced data scientist that wants to help the world create insight from unstructured data? My global client are building an entirely new product that helps organisations to

understand the narrative around their brands, competitors and industries. If you want to work with a well­funded startup that’s solving some of the world’s most interesting data problems

About you

● You like using data to tell stories

● You are inquisitive and get excited about trying to create meaning from large data sets covering the span of the traditional and social web

● You are equally comfortable working with technical and non­technical people, and enjoy helping others understand the magic of what you’ve discovered

● You’re comfortable leading meetings

● You can build robust technical “proofs­of­concept” and then help the engineering team to turn them into production­ready code

● You have a degree in quantitative or related field including economics, physics, math, statistics, chemistry, biology, neuroscience, linguistics, computer science, engineering, or business analytics

The role

As this is the first data science role they are looking for an individual that is able to roll up their sleeves and define what data science looks like.You’ll have a wide range of responsibilities, including:

● Setting a vision around what they do with our data

● Creating the environments in which you’ll be working with data

● Consulting with clients regarding traditional web and social media data 

● Mining and wrangling data from a variety of sources including news, forums, social networks in order to create the initial datasets for your experiments.

The technologies used:

The data is primarily stored in Elasticsearch and a small number of structured databases. You’ll use languages such as Python to create proofs­of­concept in a way that it easy for our engineering team to understand and develop further (our app is built on java and AngularJS).


Working for my client offers many perks, but, the key thing is that we are a talented team with a passion for the product we are building

● Work remotely (with allowance for co­working space membership to ensure you don’t go stir crazy at home)

● Competitive salary & stock options

● Excellent holiday allowance

● Top of the range equipment budget

● Semi­annual retreats with the whole team
