auticon UK

Data Scientist / Data Analyst / Data Engineer - Co...

Job description

About us

auticon is a social enterprise whose mission is to provide long-term career opportunities for autistic adults. We employ autistic people as IT and Data Consultants, and they deliver high-quality services to our clients.

As autism is the cornerstone of our social mission, we do ask applicants for these roles to provide evidence that they’re in the process of obtaining an autism diagnosis, evidence they have a diagnosis, or alternative documentation to evidence autism.

Are you autistic and looking for a career in data science? Do you have an analytical mindset and a keen eye for detail, with skills in pattern recognition and error detection? Would you like to work in an environment where neurodiversity is celebrated and autistic staff are supported to thrive?

Our business is growing: we’re expanding our Dublin practice and are looking for data scientists, data analysts and data engineers to join our team of talented autistic consultants. We recruit on a rolling basis with flexible start dates.

What the role involves

You’ll join our team of Consultants and Senior Consultants. You’ll be a permanent employee of auticon, but most of your day-to-day work will be with one of our clients. You’ll add skills and expertise to the client’s team or project. Most of our clients are large multinational organisations who require expertise in areas such as data analysis, data visualisation, data engineering, cyber security, machine learning or AI. You get the chance to work on interesting assignments with our clients, whilst still having all the support of being an auticon employee. When you’re between projects, your employment with us continues and we support you to further develop your skills.

What we offer

  • A salary of €30,000 – €47,000 (dependent upon skills and experience)
  • Normally €30,000 – €36,000 for Consultants with lower levels of work experience or €33,000 – €47,000 for Consultants with more relevant work experience or practical application of skills via a PhD, for example
  • Permanent contract that includes valuable autism-tailored benefits, such as ongoing assistance from a dedicated Coach who provides practical and emotional support to help you thrive in your role
  • Min 33 days annual leave, including bank holidays, with optional annual leave purchase available
  • Private health insurance package
  • Friendly and productive work environment where reasonable adjustments are understood and encouraged
  • Personal development with fully funded courses

What we’re looking for

Essential Criteria - please apply if you have:

  • Evidence that you are in the process of obtaining an autism diagnosis OR evidence you already have a diagnosis OR alternative documentation to evidence autism
  • The ability to commute to central Dublin on a regular basis. As a responsible employer, we’re aware of the sensory and emotional impact of longer commutes. We consider a reasonable commute to be no longer than 1.5 hours each way
  • Strong Python or R skills, including the use of relevant libraries (NumPy, pandas, etc.)
  • Experience in 2 or 3 of the following:

-- Using data analysis tools

-- Processing large data sets accurately

-- Using relational databases

Desirable Criteria (please note that you don’t need to meet all, or any, of the criteria listed below in order to apply)

  • Previously used Tableau, Power BI, Qlik, Spotfire, etc.
  • Certification in one of the major cloud services (AWS, Azure, Google Cloud Platform, etc.)
  • Some knowledge/experience of machine learning (e.g. TensorFlow)
  • Cyber security skills, experience or certification (e.g. CompTIA)
  • Some relevant work experience or equivalent practical application of skills through a PhD, for example

Due to the differing needs of our clients, we can’t guarantee an entirely remote role, therefore some commuting into Dublin will be required. However, as we appreciate the impact that commuting and office environments can have on our consultants, we ensure reasonable adjustments are implemented and encourage flexible or hybrid working arrangements where possible.

Successful candidates must have ongoing permission to work in Ireland.
