12 January 2016 - 11:28Data Scientist Jobs in London

Back in January 2015 I announced my Data Science Jobs UK email list. This has grown nicely, several hundred data scientists have joined it and are interested in (mostly) Python related jobs around London with an even split between contract and permanent roles. If you sign-up to the mailing list you’ll get:

  • 1-2 plain-ASCII mails a month with a summary of current jobs (typically 4-6), mostly focused around London
  • Sometimes the jobs are remote
  • Mostly they’re for Python but Matlab and R also come up

I manage the list, your email is never shared and the list is run by mailchimp so you can easily unsubscribe. Active data scientists who attend PyDataLondon can post for free, others can post at a commercial rate (e.g. recruiters and folk in companies). I vet all the jobs to ensure they’re relevant. Drop me an email if you’ve got a relevant job to share.

“After placing a contract ad on this list I was contacted by a number of high quality and enthusiastic data scientists, who all proposed innovative and exciting solutions to my research problem, and were able to explain their proposals clearly to a non-specialist; the quality of responses was so high that I was presented with a real dilemma in choosing who to work with”. – Hazel Wilkinson, Cambridge University

I put the list together to help local data scientists find more relevant jobs, feel free to dip in and out when it might be useful.
