Data Scientist - Quantitative Modelling - Outside IR35
Data Scientist with Quantitative Modelling experience required by a leading tech company for an initial 6-month contract. It's fully remote, outside IR35, and will likely extend long term due to the amount of work they have in the pipeline.
You will be part of a rapidly growing data team helping to deliver their leading data platform that is being used to help drive key decision making in renewable energy and its use around the world - tech for good you could say!
As a Data Scientist, you will support a long-term program to replace an external data solution for power forecasting and prediction with an evolved, next-generation in-house system. As part of this, you will be involved in designing the key data models and predictive technologies that will support demand and supply, drive price stabilisation and support risk/cost reduction The main tools you will be using day to day are:
** Python, R or Java
** Experience in large & complex data-sets
**Background in maths & stats
Our customer is looking for someone to come in who is well versed with the above tools/technologies, and they need someone who understands the principles of Data Engineering and is willing to roll their sleeves up as this project is critical for them.
As a Senior member of the team, they expect you to pick up their tooling pretty quickly, work closely with other people in the team and help build upon an already industry leading product.
Rate / Process:
This is an urgent role which is based in Edinburgh City Centre but is fully remote.
