Job Description

Data Science Lead; Digital; Agile; Python; R; Time Series Forecasting

One of my Digital clients, who are in a period of growth from a technology perspective, are looking to hire a Lead Data Scientist to spearhead their Data Science function.

This is a leadership role within the company where you will be expected to come into a relatively immature environment from a data science perspective and help shape and define how it will move forward. You will also be leading the company's Data Science projects and helping to grow out the team in due course.

To be right for this role, you must have the following:

  • Have built or led a Data Science team, ideally within a small, start-up company.
  • A proven track record of being someone who has defined processes within a new data science function.
  • Have applied time series forecasting to previous projects.
  • Strong R and Python skills.

This really is a unique role getting in at ground-level with an exciting company in brand new offices that operate with an Agile approach and with strong financial backing.
