About the role
As part of a growth trajectory, ME is on the lookout for a Senior Data Scientist who will work with the business as an analytics partner, seeking to understand business problems and identify analytics opportunities through data mining, clearing and enrichment, model prototyping, model development and solution lifetime management.
Reporting to the Data Science Manager, in the Analytics and Insights team, your key responsibility is to develop, maintain and improve data science services and products for ME. You will be collaborating with different projects across the bank to deliver quality analytics solutions, using sound data scientific tool sets and methodologies. No two days are the same- one day you may be building predictive churn models, and the next, you could be analysing and interpreting data using statistical techniques.
You’re naturally a highly motivated and energetic person who thrives in a dynamic, collaborative team environment. You have sound experience and knowledge of advanced analytics and data science preferably from a Financial Services background. You also have an outstanding data-based problem-solving skill set and you’re a champion at being able to analyse and design data science processes.
As a Senior Data Scientist, it’s essential that you have strong experience in analytical applications such as Python, Spark and SQL. You’ve worked in large, complex, cross functional projects, and know the value of analytics, and how it can help a business succeed. With your exceptional communication, interpersonal and stakeholder management skills and your fantastic ability to build effective working relationships and influence others, and when this is combined with your leadership capabilities and ability to run projects from end to end, you’re excited at the prospect of joining the team at ME
