Some of the projects this director will help with involves building data science roadmaps relating to marketing decisions, leading a data science team and building machine learning models through all phases of development, identifying and managing model risks in line with risk management policies, and of course leading, recruiting, mentoring and growing a team of data scientists and engineers!

  • 7-9 years in data analytics, or PhD and 5 years in data analytics.
  • 4 years of experience using open source programming languages for large scale data analysis.
  • 4 years of experience with machine learning.
  • 4 years of relational databases.

Nice to have:

  • 3 years experience working with AWS, and managing a team
  • 5 years of Python, Scala or Spark for large scale data analysis.
  • 8-10 years using machine learning to solve complex problems for large scale applications.
