You would be joining a small, exceptionally intelligent team working with technologies like:

The ideal candidate will have the following experience:

c. 2-3 years of commercial experience in data, machine learning or software development

previous experience with Python and its related libraries

experience building cloud-hosted data pipelines

knowledge of modern cloud and dev-ops tools


In return, you will get the chance to make a genuine difference to the fight against climate change, and enjoy a flexible, hybrid approach to work with benefits that cover: 33 days holiday a year; your birthday off every year; company pension contribution; and much more!
