Senior Marketing Data Scientist - 12 month FTC

Why is our Senior Marketing Data Scientist position the next step for you?

This is an exciting role working on a high profile strategic initiative within Worldpay UK.  

We’ve invested heavily in leading-edge data capabilities and we’re looking for a senior data scientist with a consumer insights background to join a small, entrepreneurial team looking to exploit this technology by commercialising our payments data.

How will you add value on a day-to-day basis?

You’ll report into the head of our new consumer insights proposition and play a pivotal role in shaping the success of this service by leading the analytical development of new, data-driven marketing products for our corporate customers – which include many of the UK’s largest retail and hospitality businesses.  

To help steer this analytical development, you’ll liaise directly with corporate customers, in conjunction with the head of the proposition and our corporate sales team, to help gather their requirements, deliver pilot analysis and test product prototypes.

As a senior member of the team, you’ll also work alongside the head of the proposition to help co-ordinate workstream activities for two other, more junior analysts within the team and help foster a team environment that encourages best practice sharing for coding, analytics and modelling. 

What will make you the ideal candidate?

You’ll need to be passionate about consumer data and relish the opportunity to turn a rich transactional dataset into compelling new insight.

We are looking for at least 5 years’ data science experience at a marketing or consumer insights agency, or a consumer-facing organisation.  Strong analytical skills are critical to this role so you’ll be highly numerate, with a degree or relevant higher qualification in a quantitative subject.  You’ll also bring excellent SQL and statistical analysis skills, with hands-on experience of using R to apply statistical techniques such as k-means clustering, principal components analysis, CHAID and multivariate regressions. 

Strong communication and influencing skills are also core to this role as you’ll be expected to deliver insights to customers and engage with a variety of senior business stakeholders across our corporate sales and marketing teams.
