  • Keeping up to date with current research that impacts our products and preparing presentations on key changes.
  • Mentoring members of the data science team and evangelising scientific best practices.
  • Presenting our data science products internally as well as to clients.
  • Be a great member of the team, whilst the work is quite autonomous, we’re a close knit bunch and like to support each other in any way we can.


  • Excellent mathematical and theoretical skills. Likely from an MSc or PhD in a highly mathematical field.
  • Breadth of experience in standard machine-learning and statistical modelling tools and techniques. Ideally will also have experience with geospatial modelling.
  • Excellent presentation skills. You will be comfortable presenting our modelling approaches to both technical and non-technical audiences.
  • Experience working with large data sets.
  • Python programming skills including its data ecosystem (NumPy, Scikit-Learn, Pandas, etc), and maintaining code repositories in git.
  • Good knowledge of SQL (ideally MySQL).
  • Experience with mentoring and teaching other team members.
