VP, Data Science
πριν από 2 μέρες

We’re looking for a VP Data Science to join us here at GWI. Not just any VP Data Science though. Someone ambitious and genuine, who works best in the midst of a collaborative and forward-thinking team.

That’s because as a GWIer you’ll be immersed in the fast-moving world of data tech. We think big to make an impact, we zero in on what matters, we’re not afraid to be real and we always show respect .

Those values are what got us where we are today, and they’re a big part of what we’re looking for in you.

About the role

The VP Data Science will report to the Chief Product Officer, sit in our cross functional Strategic Leadership Team and manage the entire Data Science function.

Our mission at GWI is to create an audience insights platform that makes discovering unique consumer insights in our vast datasets easy, intuitive and delightful for users of all experience levels.

Data Science is at the heart of this mission, both in terms of making sure that our first party survey datasets are robust and reliable, and in building the models that automate the analysis process for our users and build strong methodological guardrails into our product experiences.

We need a visionary Data Science leader, who is able to work closely with our product and design leaders to imagine a bold future for audience data analysis, and also with our engineering leadership team to actually build towards that future.

You will be able to both represent the voice of data science to company leadership and lead and inspire your fast growing team of data scientists.

You will develop close working relationships with your peers on the senior leadership team across all functions of the business, bringing your unique perspective to the formation of company strategy.

You will help to raise the profile of GWI as a thought leader in Data Science, by working closely with our marketing teams, contributing to industry events / discussion and talking directly with our stellar clients.

This role could be based either in Athens or in London (with hybrid working options). Regardless of which location (when it is safe to do so) the role will involve some travel to the other location, as the team is distributed between Athens and London.
