Identifying and answering questions that have a direct impact on BLM’s business and those of its customers, the Data Scientist will mine, combine and analyse firm, customer and public data to identify valuable business insights. This exciting role will develop new data driven products, methods and technologies that will form part of BLM’s customer offering, and design and manage the testing of analytic insights (i.e. via experiments) to identify ways which BLM and its customers can improve their business models and processes.
