Full Time

Data Scientist required by an exciting tech start up in Manchester city centre who are going from strength to strength at the moment. They are rapidly expanding the Data Science team and are keen to speak to people of all levels from MSc Graduates to highly experienced Data Analytics professionals.

This is easily the most exciting time in the company's young history and by joining now, you will help shape the future of the organisation.

The Company:

A forward thinking organisation based in the heart of Manchester who have already outgrown their initial work space due to the success they have had. They have very recently moved into a larger, custom office where they will be able to accommodate the rapid growth across all teams. I was lucky enough to go see the new office recently and it is one of the most impressive I've been to. The organisation specialises in Data Analytics and work with a number of well-known customers to help them make the most of their data.

You'll be a vital team member from day one, with your new company operating a very flat organisational structure - you'll be sitting next to the Directors with the ability to bounce ideas off them whenever you want. The office atmosphere is relaxed but clearly motivated as they strive to be the global leaders in their field.

The Person:

As you will be working for a Data Analytics company, technical & mathematical problems are par for the course. You will be dealing with a mix of clients from global FTSE 100 organisations to local companies so will need to be able to communicate with them at both a technical and non-technical level.

One of the biggest areas for our client is the desire to continue your professional development, keeping abreast of the ever changing world of data.

If you're on the lookout for a big pay day, or to work in a behemoth organisation where you'll be a small cog in a big wheel, this is definitely not the role for you.

However, if you are ambitious and up for a challenge - it could be perfect.

Technologies & Qualifications:

From a technical perspective, ideally you will have experience (commercial or academic) of most of the following:

** MSc or PhD in a highly analytical subject such as Physics, Mathematics, Computer Science, Artificial Intelligence, Informatics etc.

** Machine Learning / Data Mining / Natural Language Processing (NLP)

** Statistical Packages or Languages such as: R, SPSS, SAS, S-Plus, Python, MATLAB and STATA

** RDBMS - Open Source, NoSQL and any knowledge of SQL Server

** Any understanding or previous knowledge of: Markov Models, Cluster Analysis, Statistics and Reliability Models

** Big Data tools such as: Hadoop / Pig / Hive / HBase / Cassandra / Spark / Splunk

This is a unique opportunity for you to join an ambitious organisation where you can become an integral part of a high calibre Data Science team in the heart of Manchester.
