Senior Developer - Python / Machine Learning / Data Development

We are looking for a versatile and motivated senior software engineer, specialising in Machine Learning services. This is an exciting opportunity to help design and deliver the next generation Machine Learning based products for MyPeople. You will work closely with other software engineers, business stakeholders, and external data scientists to help unlock the full potential of our data.
You will be responsible for all stages of the data development process, including the design and implementation of data acquisition processes and pipelines, data cleaning and validation, modelling and training of algorithmic models, and data visualisation.
The ideal candidate will be passionate about artificial intelligence and stay up-to-date with the latest developments in the field.

The Company
The MyPeople team is formed of the analysts, data scientists and psychologists that supported GB cycling, GB Rowing, Team Sky, Leicester FC, the English and Irish Lions and England Rugby to achieve success.
This has resulted in: Over 30 World Championship titles, Over 20 Olympic Gold medals, 1 Rugby Six Nations Grand Slam, 3 Six Nations tournaments wins, 2 Undefeated Lions tours, 1 Premier League football title and 2 Tour de France Wins.

Their work also contributed to the foundation of the ‘marginal gains’ approach. They work together now to build a marginal gains analytics system for business.

The Aim
• To be the No1 People Analytics platform choice for SME (200-750 employees) and Mid-enterprise business (750-3000 employees) in the UK and Europe.

• To redefine the measurement and understanding of culture and performance in a business context, and to use software to generate useful and actionable business insight for all levels of an organisation.

• To provide executives with the insight they need to make evidence-based strategic decisions on recruitment, succession planning, team dynamics, training and development, and risk management.

• To join up data from internal and external sources in an easy to understand way for non-technical business users, that enables them to make better decisions for their people and their organisation.
The product

MyPeople is a unique People Analytics platform that focuses on an organisation’s culture and performance, and we use a range of mechanisms to generate different measures of a company’s aptitudes in these areas. Individually these mechanisms provide a useful barometer of the company health, but together they form a powerful diagnostic tool that can guide an organisation to a healthier culture and better business performance.
The MyPeople platform is a cloud-based survey and analytics platform built using .NET and hosted on Microsoft Azure. The platform allows users to generate, measure and report on people culture and performance. The MyPeople platform has some reporting and analytical tools and now requires the addition of machine learning technology to extract the maximum insight from the data generated.

It is envisaged that the MyPeople platform will become integral to business decision making and the primary source of ‘people knowledge’ for mid to large scale businesses.
In addition, the MyPeople platform will seek to integrate with / receive data from:
• Enterprise software such as HR/Finance/Payroll systems
• External abstract data platforms (such as social media, meteorological software, opens source data sets)

The Role
This role is to join the MyPeople team to bring a machine learning/predictive modelling approach to the MyPeople platform to improve insight for non-data orientated users. You will drive innovation through the use of new and established technologies to give our users genuine insight leading to real decision making. You will be highly motivated, and capable of working both independently and collaboratively in a fast-paced agile environment.
