Be-IT’s client have had to live through the global pandemic as every other business has. The question that is obvious to me and so I assume, to you as well, is how is my clients business positioned today? Well, very well indeed is the refreshing answer to this question! Figures are up 20% on the best ever results pre-pandemic. That should give comfort to you that this company is in a healthy place.
Now, let us turn our attention to who works within this business. I am a recruiter and not a technologist and can only go on what others tell me. All I can do is relay what they have said. Be-IT works exclusively with this Client and each candidate I have placed with them has told me the same story. Post-interview they tell me that they met with an exceptionally clever and talented technologist (who went on to be their boss and could be yours too). When I have caught up with them weeks and months after starting with the business they tell me the work has a huge variety, is extremely challenging and interesting from a technology viewpoint, and that they made a great choice and are very happy to have joined.
I already mentioned the company performance and should have also highlighted that the wheels haven’t stopped. The plan is to keep growing. To use technology and in this case Machine Learning to continue strides forward.
If you are someone who has a background in the application of Machine Learning as opposed to research and know-how to deliver Machine Learning Solutions and have a computer science background then this should interest you. You will work with technical and business stakeholders to plan and deliver machine learning solutions. You will be part of a new function looking to achieve strategic project objectives. You will be part of a team responsible for establishing best practices within the organisation as it relates to machine learning, data analysis, the testing of predictive models, and data pre-processing and you must have a willingness to dive into the details of data sets and machine learning.
Python is used currently (a lot of freedom to change things, however, assuming it drives KPI metrics). A background in Statistical Modelling, Machine Learning, NLP, Optimisation Simulation, forecasting, Information Retrieval, Experimental Design, Statistics, Data Visualisation
