Data Science Lead – Pulse

On a mission to help every small business succeed

They believe small businesses make the world go round. They create jobs, build communities, are the core of their economy, and enrich their culture. But it’s too hard; they are not just expected to be passionate, hardworking entrepreneurs. They are also expected to quickly understand the complexities of their financial data to make crucial business decisions every day.

They are here to do the difficult task of simplifying this problem. They are using data science combined with an amazing user experience to empower every small business make better business decisions.
They are combining the pace and entrepreneurial spirit of a technology start-up with the backing of a 150-year-old institution.
They want to be known for helping every small business succeed. Interested?

Whilst they serve businesses, they’re designing a service with a distinct consumer characteristic. Their team needs to be skilled at identifying opportunities to differentiate their product and deliver unique value in a complex market: homogenisation of their product would be a failure, making it bespoke is impossible. They have to recognise they can’t build everything, and there isn’t a run book to build this.

  • Analyse data to drive insights that would produce better customer outcomes and deliver them by creating new rulesets/decision processes.
  • Build statistical and machine learning models and apply them to financial data such as banking and accounting to automate the forecasting, optimization, and protection of cashflow.
  • Engage and collaborate with cross functional teams such as product development, marketing, legal, commercial etc. to deliver the data strategy.
  • Clearly communicate the value of data science and machine learning, plans, benefits and results, as appropriate, to a spectrum of audiences and be the data champion for Pulse in HSBC.

To be successful in this role you should meet the following requirements:

  • Able to demonstrate deep experience in analytics, artificial intelligence, machine learning, big data and cloud technology, API’s and building IP’s.
  • Able to design and craft algorithms and solutions using statistics and machine learning, both “from the ground up” and by using best-of-breed platforms and tools.
