If you are tenacious and driven, with an interest in working closely with Data Scientists, software engineers and clients as part of bright, intelligent and dynamic Product department, this is the perfect opportunity for you.
 
In the short term, the client needs assistance on developing solutions that require you to interact with both Data Scientists and Software Engineering.  You will be the conduit enabling Data Scientists to take their intellectual innovations and discoveries and translate these into meaningful, business driven value adds for end clients, via implementation of these solutions through the software engineering teams.
 
The role calls for an intelligent, confident Product specialist, who will be comfortable conversing with PhD and post-doctoral level data scientists, to help translate their proposed solutions into high level commercial impact for clients.

  • Intellectual curiosity
  • A commercial and technical mindset, able to distil your knowledge of machine learning and the requirements of customers into actionable plans.
  • The ability to turn incomplete, conflicting or ambiguous inputs into solid action plans.
  • Minimum BSc in a relevant field (e.g. engineering, computer science, machine learning, computational linguistics), preferably Masters or PhD given your internal audience
  • Familiarity with machine learning tools, algorithms and technologies (NLTK, SpaCy, Scikit-learn, TensorFlow/PyTorch/Theano is a bonus.)
  • Demonstrated ability launching products that may be Cloud, SaaS, Enterprise level, Big Data or Machine Learning in nature
  • High degree of emotional intelligence 
 
This is an excellent opportunity to help the client push the agenda around vision, strategy and roadmap for the development of important outputs from Data Scientists and drive the commercialisation of their findings. 
 
We enjoy a very strong relationship with this client and have a great understanding of what success looks like for them, so if you would like to find out more about this opportunity, please get in touch.
