Data Science Manager / Team Lead
Posted on Jul 2, 2019 by CV-Library
The organisation are looking to build a Data Science function and you will be pivotal in setting this up. They work within a very specific market and the product that they develop is very high-end. You will be working on very complicated products and will be sitting beside an experienced Software Engineering team. They are looking to hire up to 30 new people into the team over the next 6 months and this is purely due to the industry performing well and the product gaining traction. After getting to grips with the product and technology, there is flexibility on remote working too!
This will be the first Data Scientist that they will have hired into the team and you will be tasked with starting from scratch (with help). You will have responsibility for the data science strategy as well as the development and management of the new function. Initially, it will just be you in the team, but after a few months you will be expected to hire more junior members into the team and have to manage and mentor them.
You will work with stakeholders and teams across the business and will have a broad remit including, but not limited to responsibility for: Data Science commercial products, integrating data products into the existing software and data architecture of the company’s cloud strategy. The Data Science projects you choose to undertake, will be driven from customer focused business opportunities. This really is an opportunity to make your mark on the company and have a huge say in the Data Science roadmap. You will also decide what tools and technologies to use and will need to stay up to date with modern tech.

** Experience of building or being a part of a new Data Science function (preferred)
