Remote interviewing; Consultancy / Data Science / Software / Modelling

An Applications Data Scientist is being recruited by this mathematical software company. They will join a growing technical and consulting team that develop software tools for real-time modelling based on physical data. The role requires experience in software development / implementation, consultancy and data analytics.

Whilst a key attractant is the technical challenges you could be working on, the company look to support careers and personal growth. They also provide an excellent remuneration package as well as relocation expenses for qualifying candidates.

Interested? Here’s what you should have:

  • Demonstrable project experience of Machine Learning and computational statistics combined with strong coding proficiency (including open source libraries). Programming experience with C++ or C# would be ideal.
  • Experience with typical Data Science languages (Python, R) with project experience manipulating large datasets. Any exposure to business intelligence visualisation tools (such as Tableau) or data frameworks (such as Hadoop) would be advantageous.
  • Excellent communication skills (you’ll not only work on complex data, you’ll also present and talk about projects to both technical and non-technical audiences).

It is expected that interested candidates will be degree qualified (Computer Science, Maths or Physics), and possible hold advanced degrees. Relevant commercial experience is beneficial but top candidates who can demonstrate the right background and interests will also be considered.

Remote interviews can be held straight away. Joining candidates are expected to be able to work at their Edinburgh offices (under COVID-19 secure conditions).

Keywords: Data Science, Analytics, Consultancy, Training, Machine Learning, Databases, SQL, R, Python, C++ / C#
