Data Scientist

easyJet

Luton, UK

Ref: 08716

easyJet has always been pioneering. We challenge to find new ways to make travel easy and affordable for our customers. Our increasingly sophisticated use of data is another example of our entrepreneurial spirit. We’ve got big plans for AI. From managing flight schedules, boosting flight club loyalty programmes and analysing the millions of searches on our website – we truly value the predictive capability of AI and the benefits it brings for our customers. That’s why we’ve created a role for a Data Scientist.

At easyJet, we’re eager to dive into the opportunities of rich and untapped datasets. As a Data Scientist, you’ll be tasked with finding opportunities where advanced analytics can support our operations or enhance our customer proposition, unlocking those opportunities by designing, creating and implementing predictive and prescriptive capabilities.

Our goal is not only to support day to day processes, but also to tackle projects which aim to address specific business questions where a very analytical mind and the use of advanced methods might be required. The role will allow you to engage with different parts of the business to understand where and how improvements can be achieved. You’ll also offer opportunities to educate a growing analyst community within easyJet. It truly is a great opportunity.

Requirements of the Role

What we’re looking for:

  • A logical thinker with a good analytical background, with an MSc or PhD in a scientific/engineering field (Statistics, Maths, Computer Science, Engineering, Physical Sciences).
  • Proven experience in advanced statistical analysis and in applying machine learning for specific solutions.
  • Experience in using programming languages (Python, R, MATLAB, Scala, C derivatives, etc.) for statistical and machine learning analyses. Our default working languages are Python and R.
  • Knowledge of ETL processes, SQL experience desirable.
  • Experience testing and validating statistical hypotheses.
  • Experience in using cloud computing platforms and big data tools (e.g. Spark) is desirable.
  • Experience in Bayesian methods will be considered a plus.
  • Ability to work in complex business problems and environments.
  • Able to communicate findings to technical and non-technical audiences.

We want to inspire a whole generation to say ‘yes’ to new opportunities. To strike a chord with people who have the energy and passion to experience the world around them. People who don’t just wait around for things to happen. Already the UK’s largest airline, we’re as high-performing and fast-growing as businesses come. Our people are at the heart of our success, and we love sharing it with them. Travel perks, individually tailored benefits, packages linked to both your and the company’s performance – you’ll enjoy it all here. Not to mention the fantastic opportunity to drive your own development, all while sharing in our amazing success. It really is a career like no other.
