Data Scientist, Customer Solutions (London) at Maana
London, GB

The role will work directly with Customer Solutions Analysts and customers to analyze the business problem, translate the opportunity into model requirements, and define the solution. Solutions range from predictive analytics and imputation using a variety of techniques to more standard classification and clustering.

Essential Functions

Successful candidates will be familiar with NLP tools and methods, and common supervised and unsupervised ML algorithms. A critical component of this role is a strong focus on solving the customer problem and not over-engineering the implemented solution.

Successful solutions address the client problem in an analytically rigorous fashion, with special attention to testing and validating results.

The Data Scientist should also be attentive to how the developed model can and should be operationalized when integrated with a LOB (line of business) application that is used to capture workflow. The solution will provide the customer with information to make better repeatable business decisions, and build better business processes for future clients.

Throughout the solution development process, this individual will collaboratively manage all aspects of solution design and execution including working closely with development, analyst stakeholders to validate the approach and ensure alignment with the customer.

It is expected that the Data Scientist will be working on multiple solutions simultaneously, and as such, excellent project and time management skills are required.
