We have a strong culture of data-driven decision making across the whole company. And we're great believers in powerful, real-time analytics and empowerment of the wider business. All our data lives in one place and is super easy to use. 90% of day-to-day data-driven decisions are covered by self-serve analytics through Looker which gives data scientists the head space to focus on more impactful business questions and analyses.

We work in cross-functional squads where every data scientist is a member of a central data discipline and fully embedded into product squads alongside engineers, designers, marketers, product managers etc.

You should apply if

  • You have experience working together and collaborating with product managers and other business stakeholders
  • You're familiar with using a variety of Data Science tools (from business intelligence, experimentation and causal inference through to machine learning), and coding languages (Python and SQL). You know when to pick the right tool, and can help others do the same
  • You have experience managing data scientists and you really enjoy that part of the job


We can help you relocate to London & we can sponsor visas.

We offer flexible working hours and trust you to work enough hours to do your job well, at times that suit you and your team.
