Careers

Do you love to produce work that makes a tangible difference to a range of high-profile brands?

Our Culture and Values

The culture at Vuzo is collaborative and curious and values scientific data and facts above intuition.

The team comprises PhDs from Oxford, Cambridge, Cornell, Sussex and Wurzburg, specialising in Computer Science, Statistics, Physics, Mathematics and Marketing.

Simplicity

All of our reports should make sense to a new starter at the client's company. This approach forces us to repeatedly distil, clarify and visualise our findings until the communication of value is crystal clear.

Integrity

We're committed to transparency, confidentiality and information security

Education

We believe an educated client is an empowered client. We're in the business of democratising access to data, and sharing our knowledge with teams of all backgrounds and levels of understanding is a core part of our success.

The Company

Vuzo is a fast-growing data science agency formerly based in the heart of London’s thriving Moorgate tech community, and now fully remote.

We are home to world-leading data science talent and patent-pending AI tech. We have been rapidly adding household name retail brands and public sector agencies to our client base. If you’re looking for a new challenge with more autonomy and influence in the direction of your company and role, this is a rare ground-floor opportunity at a profitable startup.

The Role

Reporting to the Technical Director, you’ll be responsible for turning data into decisions that have a large impact on our clients’ businesses.

You’ll be drawing insight and meaning from large datasets, and you’ll also use Vuzo’s IP to enrich these datasets with an abundance of third party data such as ONS, CDRC, and our own proprietary datasets.

Working closely with the Account Management team and Technical Director, and supported by our team of senior data scientists and one junior data scientist, you’ll be responsible for scoping projects, importing & cleansing data, running analysis, and reporting back insights.

Ethically, you’ll remember that asking “should we” is just as important as “can we”.
