Job type: Full-time
Hiring from: Germany Only
As Google Cloud's premier partner in AI, Datatonic provides world-class businesses with cutting-edge data solutions in the cloud.
We help clients take leading technology to the limits by combining our expertise in machine learning, data engineering, and analytics. With Google Cloud Platform as our foundation, we help businesses future-proof their solutions, deepen their understanding of consumers, increase competitive advantage and unlock operational efficiencies.
Our team consists of experts in machine learning, data science, software engineering, mathematics, and design. We share a passion for data & analysis, operate at the cutting edge, and believe in a pragmatic approach to solving hard problems.
This role will provide you with the opportunity to work on and lead the most exciting data projects: product recommender systems, IoT data analysis, segmenting user behaviour profiles with web analytics data, geo-spatial analysis with billions of datapoints and many more, with a mandate to deliver high impact strategic outcomes for clients.
Whilst the position is a hands-on technical role, we'd be particularly interested to find candidates with a desire to lead projects and take an active role in leading client discussions. Your responsibilities will involve building trusted relationships with prospects, finding creative ways to use data science to solve problems, scoping projects, and overseeing the delivery of these engagements. You will also be expected to provide high-quality advice to C-suite clients on data strategy, covering the impact that AI and data science could have on their business, and the practical steps that they need to take in order to capitalise on this.
To be successful, you will need advanced analytic skills to find relationships, models, and statistical associations between massive data sets. You will have a natural curiosity to dig into unknowns, unearth insights buried in data, and provide practical conclusions. Furthermore, you'll also need excellent communication and consulting skills, with the desire to meet real business needs and deliver innovative solutions using AI & Cloud.
- Multiple years experience as a data scientist, ideally from a consulting background.
- Proven background in developing AI solutions for enterprises and corporations, including AI strategy development, project scoping, project delivery and leadership.
- Highly credible in dealing with senior stakeholders, with exceptional communication skills, and the ability to 'translate' complicated concepts to their essence.
- Able to talk persuasively about how AI and data can be used to solve problems, and able to think creatively about how these can be applied to a particular client's needs.
- Strong background in Linear Algebra, Statistics and Numerical Mathematics.
- Strong proficiency in Python and the Python data ecosystem including Numpy, Pandas, Scikit-learn.
- Experience designing, conducting, analysing, and interpreting experiments and investigations.
- Fluency in SQL.
- Excellent knowledge of numerical optimisation techniques and ML algorithms.
