You will be responsible for conceiving the data science approach, for designing the associated software architecture, and for ensuring that best practices are followed throughout. You will directly contribute to the code base of the project with a specific focus on the components that are difficult or require experience to implement.

You will play an important role in the development of others of the organisation by acting as the developmental manager or designated mentor of a small number of data scientists, and by supporting the professional growth of data scientists on the project team. The latter includes giving targeted support where needed, and providing step-up opportunities where helpful
