The aim of this role is to enable decision making and ultimately drive the growth and success of our Network Expansion division by giving the business trusted, data-driven ways of working.

The role of a Machine Learning Engineer is to build efficient, data driven artificial intelligence systems that advance our predictive automation capabilities. From creating tailor made programmes and algorithms that will help us extract value from our data to leading all processes from data collection, cleaning and pre-processing, to training models and deploying them into production.

The role will establish and develop machine learning operations frameworks and standards, including defining and embedding the infrastructure and services required for machine learning activities. You'll get the opportunity to build our machine learning strategy blueprint, advising on the different technology options and translating business requirements (both functional and non-functional) into solutions!

To be the perfect fit for this role you'll be skilled in statistics and programming with the ability to confidently assess, analyse and organise large amounts of data to solve complex problems, and work with multilayered data sets to optimise machine learning libraries and frameworks. We're looking for someone who's excited by problems within machine learning and can bring a good mix of technical delivery and consulting skills.
