Data Scientist

We’re looking for a Data Scientist to join our Research team, to help us develop intelligent products around this data, and conduct cutting-edge research into consumer behaviour on the web.

This is a great opportunity to conduct real R&D around human behaviour. Our data collection tools store more than 1 billion data points every day. Overall, Qubit technology tracks consumer journeys leading to billions of pounds of online spending worldwide every year, for some of the largest names in online retail.

We’re looking for someone smart and motivated, with experience solving real data analysis problems with statistical and machine learning techniques. As part of our research team you’ll help to understand our ever growing dataset, working closely with other parts of the business to ensure our products are ahead of the competition.

Key Responsibilities

  • Joining a team of Data Scientists at a fast growing company with plenty of opportunities to have a big impact
  • Conducting pure research and developing that research into real products used by some of the top names in online retail
  • Building statistical models and applying machine learning/artificial intelligence techniques to understand consumer behaviour online
  • Working with a mixed set of technologies and experimenting with new ones
  • Exploring how state-of-the-art machine learning methods can be applied to real-life problems at Google-scale

Personal Characteristics

We’re open to applicants from any background. Our main requirement is that you’re smart, motivated, and able to do the job. We don’t mind what specific technologies you’ve worked with in the past, although, having some previous experience with production-quality Python will help you add value quicker. We’re looking for someone who adds to our team and complements the skills we already have. That said, in order to meet these requirements, you will probably have:

  • At least one of:
    • A PhD with a large data-analysis and statistics component (e.g. Machine Learning, Computer Vision, High Energy Physics, Genetics etc...)
    • A MSc in Applied Statistics, Machine Learning or similar
    • Commercial data science experience
    • Experience deploying machine learning models in a production environment
  • At least two of:
    • Experience conducting data analysis on big data (e.g. TB+ scale datasets)
    • Experience applying statistical techniques and machine learning algorithms to extract insights from real data
    • Strong technical skills, e.g. software development, practical data analysis
  • Ability to clearly communicate complex research findings with non-technical team members and clients
  • An interest in human behaviour

Plenty of perks

As well as the opportunity to work with leading clients and a world-class team, you'll get:

  • Realistic performance-related bonuses
  • Equity options
  • Private health and dental insurance
  • Twice weekly supermarket shop so that you can have healthy breakfast, lunch and snacks
  • Yoga and meditation classes
  • Subsidised gym membership
  • Fortnightly company socials
