Summary of role :
Intelligent use of data is critical to our success and we have built out a strong data function focused on this goal. We now need someone to take our data science capabilities to the next level across a wide range of interesting and challenging domains.

To be clear, you will be heavily involved in machine learning applications, and most importantly, driving them into production - however, building out intelligent tools and services that help individuals and teams make better decisions is equally important.
What you’ll be doing :
We are looking for an agile creative thinker who relishes bringing data to life. Strong technical data science and data engineering skills are a prerequisite but your ability to practically apply your skills, communicate your findings and drive implementation in the business will set you apart.
