In a fast-paced, high-growth environment, making data-driven decisions is critical.The EMEA AWS Solutions Architecture (SA) organisation is looking for a strong, talented Senior Data Scientist to build models, discover insights and identify opportunities through the use of statistics, machine learning, and deep learning to drive business and operational improvements. We are looking for a thought leader, and you demonstrate this by delivering solutions, not just by having ideas. We encourage you to shape the business with data-driven recommendations. A successful candidate has an entrepreneurial spirit and wants to make a significant impact. You will develop strong working relationships and thrive in a collaborative team environment. Your role requires the ability to influence and interact with a broad range of stakeholders (technical and non-technical). You draw from a broad data science expertise to mentor Data Scientists and Business Intelligence Engineers, following a rigorous scientific methodology while providing leadership on complex analytical topics. You provide guidance on cutting-edge methods in big data processing, data science literature, experimentation and careful consideration of modelling decisions. We expect you to have data science breadth and depth in predictive modelling (supervised learning) and unsupervised learning (clustering).As a Senior Data Scientist on our team, you will have opportunities to develop and evaluate machine learning models using large data sets and cloud services to drive growth. Working closely with other technical colleagues, you will have joint responsibility for our team's data infrastructure. You will have the opportunity to apply various machine learning and predictive algorithms on some of the world's largest data sets and influence over the long-term evolution of our data science roadmap. You will need to be entrepreneurial, can deal with ambiguity and like to work in a highly collaborative environment. You will identify specific and actionable opportunities to solve existing business problems and collaborate with multiple stakeholder teams to deliver future innovation. You need to be a sophisticated user of advanced quantitative techniques and data visualisation and an expert at synthesising and communicating insights and recommendations to audiences of varying levels of technical sophistication.Your role is critical and highly visible across the organisation and plays a key role in developing insights.
