about the role
The Data market in the United Kingdom is very buoyant at the moment and companies across all sectors are looking to expand their data teams and my e-commerce Client is no different in that respect. What does set them above other companies similar to their size though is that, despite being a large corporate, you wont be bogged down in legacy and BAU typed work. This is a greenfield project youll be getting your teeth stuck into.
So what will you be doing here as a Lead Analyst? Well, youll get the chance to build and own their analytics capabilities for a new data platform that they are building from scratch. What is this data platform for? Well, its used to develop loyalty schemes for their Clients.
But it is not just building the analytics capabilities that makes this role pretty neat. Its also the environment too. Yes it is a large company but the feel of this team and project will feel like that of a start-up; a fast-paced environment, building a new platform within an autonomous and greenfield environment. Many data professionals I come across want to work in start-ups but worry about things such as funding. With this organisation you wont have to worry about that.
What will you need to have? Theyd like you to have around 4 years experience of building, applying and adapting predictive models, preferably supervised and unsupervised techniques. Python (or even R), SQL and either SPSS or SAS. Experience working on transactional data is vital too.
You have a strong understanding of regression, forecasting, and clustering as well an understanding of things such as Decision Trees and/or Random Forests.
If you want to work with a diverse team of professionals in a really cool publishing technology company then please apply. Why not take the chance?
