Data Scientist

Hiring Organisation: 
Accessible Intelligence

Overview Charities accumulate large amounts of data about interactions with their supporters; but are generally ill equipped to use this information strategically. Accessible Intelligence has developed the most advanced application of machine learning to help charities use data to help them reach strategic marketing goals (e.g. increasing their monthly donation amount.) We are expanding our initial launch product to build more sophisticated models, and we are expanding our services to tackle a wider range of problems. The Role This data scientist role involves working alongside the existing team to further develop our machine-learning platform. This involves using historical transactional and classification data to predict what charity supporters are likely to engage with to best to achieve a specific goal. In this role you will apply your expertise in machine learning to improve the effectiveness of charity digital engagement. For this role, you will need to have knowledge and experience using standard scientific python libraries including, numpy, scipy, pandas, etc. and knowledge of data scraping and preparation techniques. Some knowledge of machine learning (in at least one common library/framework) and full machine learning workflows would be great. The existing tech stack uses Python on top of AWS, Linux and Apache Spark, knowledge of these technologies would be good but is not essential. A strong background in physical sciences/statistics/mathematics would be a good foundation. Basic Linux/Unix command line and SQL (MySQL) familiarity would be useful. In this project you will learn about applying machine learning (ML) to help improve the effectiveness of charity digital engagement. You will play a valuable role in the development of a cutting-edge software application. Responsibilities
