Are you a Data Scientist with experience of building and implementing
machine learning algorithms? Are you frustrated in your current role? Maybe your ideas are ignored, your models
rarely used. Developing and implementing new modelling approaches is central to
our way of working. If you’re motivated
by the challenge of getting your intellectual output into our methodologies,
you’ll love working at BGL Group.
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. We sit on one of the biggest data
assets in the U.K. and have access to powerful technology 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 U.K.’s biggest
We’re already good, but we want you to help us get better!
What will you be
Researching, developing and implementing:
- new and more powerful predictive modelling
concepts to be applied in ‘real-time’
- new data features that enhance performance of
What will it take
to be successful?
- a degree in Mathematics, Statistics or other
- coding expertise in R, Python, SQL or similar
- creative streak that enables you to engineer
powerful features from our vast breadth of data
- track record of building and implementing machine
learning algorithms on large datasets that delivered business value
- the confidence to challenge, be experimental,
learn from failure; but ultimately deliver usable and valuable work
Why choose us?
Research and Development is at the heart of the team’s way
of working. Giving our staff the freedom
to be experimental and creative to find that better approach is the only way
we’ll achieve our business objectives. You
will be part of a community of experts from a variety of backgrounds: we exchange
and build upon each other’s ideas. And we take time to learn about the latest
thinking in machine learning and feature extraction.
If developing new approaches, seeing them adopted by your
peers, and watching them deliver business value appeals, then apply now!
