Salary: £30,000 - £45,000 + Benefits
Closing Date: 11:00pm on Wednesday 21st July 2021
Are you looking for an exciting new challenge within the field of Data Science? We are looking for talented individuals from numerical, computational or engineering backgrounds to join our expanding Research and Development team to support the company’s digital technology innovation strategy.
Based at our Coventry and Port Talbot sites, the Data Science & Analytics group develops and implements technologies for the entire process chain of steel manufacture to ensure that Tata Steel in Europe can deliver highest quality products with world-class conversion costs.
Our Research and Development function is looking to strengthen its core team to provide company leadership in the field of data science. We are looking to enhance a multi-skilled team covering the field of data science, from data access and preparation to deployment of the results from analytical and data mining approaches. The core area of focus will be on optimisation of manufacturing and product quality but this also integrates business and supply chain data sources, extending into the realms of ‘Smart Manufacturing’. Applications from numerical, computational or engineering backgrounds are welcomed though candidates must be able to demonstrate a keen interest and/or experience in the field of data/data science.
The successful candidate will hold a degree or higher (or equivalent experience) in a mathematical, computer science or engineering discipline and be able to demonstrate a range of skills and experience including a selection of the following areas:
Understanding of the principles of data governance and knowledge management.
Data quality, ingestion, cleansing, manipulation and integration techniques.
Development of data models to enhance the capability of existing simulation and plant control models.
Capabilities in database platforms (e.g. SQL/NoSQL, SQLServer/Postgres etc).
Experience generating insights using Azure DataBricks for Data Analytics.
Capabilities in operating system/platform system administration would also be an advantage as well as knowledge of, or a desire to develop expertise in, a range of commercial (e.g. Spotfire) and open source (e.g. KNIME, Python) data analysis tools.
Candidates will be expected to know when and how to apply techniques such as these, but also able to explain their approach and results in ways that less ICT literate stakeholders can understand. They will also be able to identify and explain methods for implementation of findings.
In terms of personal attributes you will be expected to be able to show:
Experience in data project delivery.
Ability to develop new ideas into structured, deliverable proposals and projects.
Strong analytical and problem solving capabilities.
Team working approach including collaboration with people and organisations with complimentary skills.
Excellent presentation and report writing skills.
Ability to work in a rapidly developing environment.
