As a Data Scientist at BGL Group you will be experienced in building and implementing machine learning algorithms, and motivated by working in a fast paced environment where you are encouraged to experiment and be creative.


You will be joining an ambitious, highly skilled and sociable team, who despite being part of a large company, still have that “start-up” feel.  Our team sits on one of the biggest data assets in the UK and has access to powerful technology which is able to instantly deploy those models. We pride ourselves on our ability to research and develop new, more powerful, predictive modelling approaches and turn them into business benefit.  Last year we built and deployed over 600 predictive models that generated several £millions of incremental value in a competitive digital marketplace, for some of the UK’s biggest brands and require passionate Data Scientists to join us and continue this success.

What will you be responsible for?

You will be responsible for researching, developing and implementing:

  • new and more powerful predictive modelling concepts to be applied in ‘real-time’
  • new data features that enhance performance of predictive models

What will it take to be successful?

  • You will have a degree in Mathematics, Statistics or other analytical subject
  • You will have coding expertise in R, Python, SQL or similar
  • You will be inventive, which will enable you to engineer powerful features from our comprehensive range of data
  • You will have a track record of building and implementing machine learning algorithms on large datasets that have delivered business value
  • You will possess the confidence to challenge, be experimental, admit failure, and learn from it

Why choose us?

Research and Development is at the heart of the team’s ethos.  We believe that allowing our employees the freedom to be innovative in their approach, is the best way to achieve our business objectives, and we take time to learn about the latest thinking in machine learning and feature extraction.  You will work alongside expert colleagues, who exchange and build upon each other’s ideas.
