Job Description

Are you excited about data? Will you take on the challenge to help our clients become data-driven? Do you want to change the way organizations manage their data and do business? Are you interested in how data flows through an organization and how it is governed to generate knowledge and value? If your answer is “yes” to these questions, we would love to meet with you!

 

Your job

As a Data Science Manager, you will lead a team of data scientists in delivering value to our clients while developing our business, skills and people. 

You align client business strategy, KPIs to impact, and data science use cases. You will propose new problem-solving solutions and methodologies; data modelling, analyses & interpretation. You apply the latest algorithms and techniques like deep learning and other machine learning techniques to create client value through insight generation and decision support –then turn these into action (eg. build a recommender system, determine customer segments through clustering, analyze a large text corpus to learn about the writers sentiment, predict the next best action).

 

You facilitate workshops/interviews to bridge the gap between data analytics and business outcomes. You provide advice to clients by translating analytical solutions into recommendations. You help achieve strategic goals and impact business results.
