Job description

Cool gig going for someone with DS experience from a tech engineering background.

This is advanced analytics within a core part of a bank. This bank, in particular, is spending massive amounts of money on tech, ML, and DL and BD in general.

They’re looking for a senior person who has worked VLDB Data Sciences; has built the Tech Frameworks (or similar) to supply analytics; has an appreciation of both the data and the structure of the tech and has the professional wisdom to act in an SME capacity within the bank.

Your clients internally will include quants, actuaries, traders, and execs mostly.


We are hoping to find people who:

  • Understand the theory of data sciences, have practically implemented that theory but also enjoy the technology innovation aspects of that implementation
  • Have probably been commercially coding/modelling for 10 years plus
  • Have been involved in DS and DE for at least the last two years
  • Have deep interests in tech like Python, R, SAS or similar OR
  • Can show deep knowledge in machine learning, deep learning, data science and/or data engineering

This role is an SME role meaning that part of your job will be conceptual guidance; however this is not a whiteboard function, you will be actively involved in a hands-on production. You will also find yourself bolstering a skilled leadership team responsible for guiding some talented, enthusiastic but young engineers.
