Description

Why Faculty is right for you:

We are a world leader in data science, machine learning and AI. Our mission is to help the world unlock the power of big data through innovative, simple and easy-to-implement solutions that generate business value. We are proud to have worked on over 300 data science and artificial intelligence projects ranging from counter-terrorism projects for the UK Home Office to predictive analytics for a London bus company to identify potential delays in routes.


Founded in 2014, we are now a company of more than 80 based in Marylebone, London. In the next year, we look to continue our growth trajectory. We care profoundly about our values and think carefully about how everything we do embodies those values. We look for driven, thoughtful, collaborative team players who are relentless in their pursuit of our mission and are excited to be part of our journey to build a great organisation.


The role:

We are recruiting for an exceptional engineer to join our frontend product team. With us you will have the opportunity to build the world’s leading Data Science platform, underpinned by cutting edge technologies such as ReactJS, GraphQL, and Kubernetes. As part of our frontend team you will work within a Squad Framework with a flat leadership structure. On top of the core role we have a strong focus on personal improvement and self-directed learning. We enable this through weekly learning time and secondments to other technical teams, including the Data Science team.
