Requisition ID:  149529

Technology Consulting – Data Scientist  


At EY, you’ll have the chance to build a career as unique as you are, with the global scale, support, inclusive culture and technology to become the best version of you. And we’re counting on your unique voice and perspective to help EY become even better, too. Join us and build an exceptional experience for yourself, and a better working world for all.   


The Opportunity 


We live in a data rich World and more & more of our personal and business interactions are being driven by the application of advanced analytics and artificial intelligence (AI).  At EY, we are helping organisations transform, to continually improve the way they ‘do business’ and lead in the market.  We are doing this by challenging the norm, by taking on the ‘too hard’ problems and by helping organisations become insight driven. 


We have a fast-growing Data & Analytics practice within Advisory, where Data Science & AI Engineers are at the tip of the spear for driving growth.  Whether you are an expert in computer vision, have a passion for NLP, love playing with Graph we would really like to hear from you.  We also believe all sector experience has something to offer, so whether you are Telco or FS, Consumer Products or Utilities, it will all add to the richness of services we can offer our clients.  


Your Responsibilities 


We are looking to bring in talented people like you across all our grades.  No day would be ‘typical’, but you could expect to be involved in some or all of the activities listed below during the course of your career: 


  • Supporting the pursuit of new work through client conversations and presentations 

  • Research & development in support of new AI based offerings 

  • Delivering client solutions using a range of DS/AI technologies 

  • Learning about new technologies/research and how they could be applied for the benefit of our clients 

  • Mentoring other experienced and aspiring Data Science & AI Engineers 

  • Development of innovative prototypes to bring to life our capability 

  • Support of bid response work to articulate what value we can bring 

  • Speaking at conferences, meetups and other EY brand promotion events  

  • Blogging about what we do 

  • Collaborating with our partners and other parts of EY 


Skills & Attributes for Success 


Clearly your technical expertise is welcomed and expected, but we are also looking for your experience and guidance to drive the right solution and approach for the problem at hand.  To be transformative, we often have to go after the ‘too hard’ business problem, which requires our people to be creative and really challenge themselves to deliver.  We want you to be thinking how you can apply your knowledge and push yourself to learn more in order to solve the difficult stuff. 


If you have some or all of the below, then get in touch: 


  • Strong inter-personal, collaborative & team player skills 

  • Professional experience in delivery of advanced analytics/DS/AI projects 

  • Excellent understanding of mathematical, probability & statistics principles, and of algorithm theory  

  • Detailed knowledge of a range of AI techniques including, graph data analytics, time series, NLP, deep learning, supervised and unsupervised machine learning etc 

  • Programming skills in Python or R, Spark and SQL 

  • Worked with open source data science libraries and understand how to apply them to various problem types 

  • Experience of using the latest Data science platforms (e.g. Databricks, AzureML) and frameworks (e.g. Tensorflow, MXNet, scikit-learn) 

  • Data wrangling and manipulation techniques 

  • Experience of development & deployment tooling, such as Jenkins, Ansible, Docker etc 


Ideally, you’ll also have 


  • Experience of working on a Microsoft Azure platform 

  • Used a data visualisation technology, like Tableau, Power BI or Qlik 

  • Software engineering experience (e.g. coding standards, version control, testing, review) 


Whilst we are looking for machine learning experts, we aren’t looking for machines; what we need is your human IQ and EQ to be part of our high performing team.  Success isn’t achieved from a cookie cutter template, nor from re-inventing the wheel every time, rather it’s a combination of balancing the innovation and industrialisation experience you can bring. 


What we offer 


We offer a competitive remuneration package where you’ll be rewarded for your individual and team performance. Our comprehensive Total Rewards package includes support for flexible working and career development, and with FlexEY you can select benefits that suit your needs, covering holidays, health and well-being, insurance, savings and a wide range of discounts, offers and promotions. Plus, we offer: 

  • Continuous learning: You’ll develop the mindset and skills to navigate whatever comes next. 

  • Success as defined by you: We’ll provide the tools and flexibility, so you can make a meaningful impact, your way. 

  • Transformative leadership: We’ll give you the insights, coaching and confidence to be the leader the world needs. 

  • Diverse and inclusive culture: You’ll be embraced for who you are and empowered to use your voice to help others find theirs.
