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.

Data Scientist

Permanent, FT, Bristol
£35,000 to £45,000 subject to experience + Equity

Vuzo is a fast-growing data science agency with offices in Bristol and London. We are home to world-leading data science talent and patent-pending AI technology. We are rapidly adding household name retail brands into our client base. If you’re looking to apply your data science skills to a diverse range of clients, this is a rare ground-floor opportunity at a profitable, debt-free startup.

Here’s a client talking about how we made a real difference to their business in 2019

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 transactional datasets, helping household name retailers, insurance companies, and eCommerce businesses. You’ll also use our IP to enrich these datasets with third party data and our own proprietary datasets.

Working closely with the Technical Director and Account Director, and in collaboration with our senior data scientists, you’ll initially be responsible for projects such as:

importing & cleansing data
exploratory data analysis
summarising and modelling client data
developing user-friendly reports for clients
You will be mindful of vital factors such as data security, business continuity and data protection.

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

Skills & Experience

You’ll be highly numerate and analytical with a broad understanding of data science techniques and technologies. R is our language of choice for most projects so we would expect it to be yours too. Some SQL and Python is desirable.

You’ll have an understanding of good development practices, including version control.

You’ll hold a degree in Computer Science, Statistics, Engineering, Mathematics, Physics or similar quantitative discipline, or equivalent experience.

You’ll have experience of the core techniques in the data-science “toolbox” (e.g. supervised/unsupervised learning, PCA, time series analysis, statistical testing) and the knowledge of where these techniques would be appropriately deployed.

Experience of data preparation and cleaning, and initial scoping of unfiltered/non machine readable datasets is needed.

Familiarity with Linux, or the aptitude to learn, will be beneficial.

Your Traits

Curiosity and willingness to learn are important. We want you to grow as the business grows

Determination, grit and stamina: building a start-up is exciting, challenging and rewarding

Precision in working practices and ability to glean insights from data without a pre-given hypothesis
