Edinburgh | Permanent
This Edinburgh based employer specialises in digital and customer analytics; using machine learning and customised algorithms, they combine analytics, consulting and engineering disciplines to support data science solutions.
Essentially, this means that they help other businesses to make the most of their data and understand their customers better- and they work with a very impressive range of clients, including many household names such as MTV, Waitrose, Bupa and Canon.
Due to expansion they are looking to a graduate to their team of Data Engineers, who work to support and deliver solutions for clients.
While a Computer Science or Software Engineering degree is preferred (and examples of technical algorithms or frameworks you have worked with either during your studies or work experience would be great), other degrees such as Physics, Mathematics or Engineering are also good if you have some experience with programming.
The key requirement is logical thinking and the ability to talk through a problem , particularly as you will be communicating with clients.
You will be helping to support the clients by delivering novel solutions from tag management and digital analytics to database management and cloud computing network engineering – no two projects are ever the same. You will have the opportunity to solve problems and consult with clients, including occasionally visiting them (mainly in London).
If not all of this is familiar at this stage don’t worry- there will be full training and ongoing learning and support. It’s more important that you have the commitment to developing your skills, while working as part of a close-knit growing team.
Going forward, there are lots of opportunities to progress with the company.
