Data Engineer / Analyst - Signoi

Brighton and Hove

Closing date: 09/07/2019

Signoi is a tech start-up developing a new analytics-driven insight and foresight platform for decoding both implicit and explicit meaning from unstructured data in an intuitively human way. Our unique platform brings meaning from muddle and signal from noise – at speed and scale.

Job Description:

As a data engineer and analyst you will source and analyse data to discover insights that guide our team and support our clients. To be successful in this role you need to be analytical, have a passion for data and enjoy presenting your findings in a visually compelling way. You will understand how the right data can improve decision making and directly drive growth. A natural curiosity is essential, as is a drive to get involved post-analysis to make sure your insights have been acted upon.

Skills Range:

Our Data Engineer and Analyst will be responsible for all phases of the analysis process on managed service projects for a range of clients. This will involve text, image, audio and video analysis.

The core components of the analytical cycle are:

(1) Data sourcing - on many projects Signoi sources data for clients. Data could be derived from: market research (primary or secondary); social; news; client communications, and much more besides.

(2) Data import - ensure data (whether sourced by us, or provided by clients) is clean and coherent, and import the data into the platform.

(3) Editing, cleaning and recoding of data once it has been imported into the Signoi platform. The platform has a wide range of data cleaning/editing/recoding facilities.

(4) Run reporting and analysis routines, quality control the outputs, and generate dashboards for client access to results.

(5) Handle data file export, ad hoc analysis and data requests from internal and external client(s).

The current platform is a Linux based command line interface (similar to the "R" statistical analysis system/Jupyter notebooks) analytical system for text and image data. It uses advanced machine learning and statistical algorithms to enable the analysis of unstructured data. The ideal candidate will have experience of a Linux command line environment. Core skills include use of bash and vi along with the full range of Linux utilities (i.e. wc, ls) to manipulate text and image files.

An interest in or experience of Python or Javascript programming would be useful. However, this is not a software development role. We are in the process of developing a full scale SaaS system based on the current command line system.

Person Specification:

This is an opportunity to join a dynamic company at an early stage with a unique market position poised for rapid expansion in the UK and internationally.

Signoi is - and will continue to build - an equal, diverse team. We are also acutely aware of the ethical dimensions of our work; from the data we source, to the platform we build, to the analysis we deliver.

The ideal candidate must be detail oriented and have experience in data analytics. Some understanding of statistics would be very helpful. An interest in expanding your knowledge of text and image analytical techniques is important.
