Internal customers will vary in their data literacy and how experienced they are with using insights - so we’d love someone who has a knack for presenting and communicating complex concepts in simple, actionable terms to different audiences.  

Required Experience and Skills:

  • We are looking at senior data scientists only, so a reasonable range would be 6-10 years of commercial data science role *(excluding study or academic research)
  • Academic background at a bachelor, masters or PhD level, with a numerical foundation, such as Mathematics, Statistics, Physics, Computer Science, Mechanical Engineering, etc. 
  • Confident in using modern data stack for end-to-end data science & analytics; Python, SQL, various ML libraries, Databricks OR Spark
  • Deployed models and analytical solutions in a business - you can give multiple examples of solutions you built and deployed, which led to measured business results. (This could be very broad; e.g. X% increase in sales/conversion rate, decrease of X% in customer churn, saving X hours of FTE time automating a process, improved model accuracy by X%, leading to a direct improvement in NPS score by X, etc.)
  • This team operates using hybrid work – you could expect 2-3 days per week in the Sydney CBD office, on average

This is a permanent and full-time role.
