We’re always keen to start conversations on how AI can help solve real-world problems, or opportunities for technology to impact people in a positive way.

We’re looking for a Lead Data Scientist to join our Eliiza team in Melbourne. 

In this challenging role you will work with other smart, passionate and skilled people to deliver data science products and services to clients.

With our diverse range of clients and projects, no day will look the same – but here’s a great snapshot of what’s in store:

  • You’ll get to lead client projects by carrying out technical work, engaging with key stakeholders, helping to up-skill our clients and providing delivery oversight.
  • Support pre-sales activities through client conversations, project scoping, and helping pull together proposals.
  • Leading our internal data science capability by mentoring other data scientists, guiding our learning and development strategy, and helping with recruitment.

Who are we? 

Glad you asked! We are Eliiza. Data science. Engineered for scale. 

We are a passionate team of data scientists and engineers who apply Artificial Intelligence (AI) / Machine Learning (ML) to solve real-world problems. Our mission is to create a bright future for Australian businesses and society in a world increasingly influenced by intelligent technologies. 

We’ve created an awesome culture that values diversity where our people can truly be themselves! We’re focused o n providing opportunities for underrepresented minority groups to work within the tech industry and we’re actively involved in the data science community, especially in the area of Responsible AI.

While we get excited about building AI solutions for our customers we love nothing more than being part of the broader community. You’ll find us at Meetups, writing blog posts, hosting brown bag sessions and podcasts! 

We’re also part of Mantel Group’s ‘house of brands’ which means it’s not just the Eliiza team you’ll work with, learn from and see at social events – there’s another 230 of us across DigIO, Kasna & CMD Solutions!

So you’re ready for something new? 

We’re keen to know more about you! Our team is made up of a range of people, with different experience across a huge range of data driven skill sets. 

If you’re the right Lead Data Scientist for us, you’ll have:

  • an undergraduate degree in maths or statistics, or a postgraduate in broader disciplines such as the sciences. 
  • commercial data science experience across different industries and organisations
  • consulting experience, either with external clients or internally within an organisation
  • an understanding of key statistical and machine learning concepts across different areas of data science.
  • the ability to manipulate complex data sets to visualise and model the data
  • fundamental software engineering skills
  • the ability to plan the different phases of a data science project
  • an awareness of how to deliver outcomes, prioritise steps and manage a team
  • experience in people leadership, thought leadership and driving best practices
  • a genuine passion for and connection to the data science and ML community

What’s on offer if you join us? 

  • We make sure you’re always one step ahead by investing your learning and development, every year. We build our own training where it doesn’t exist yet – it’s in our best interest to teach you things you don’t already know. 
  • We hire smart people and get out of their way. By focusing on our five principles and not getting caught up in red tape, we trust you to get the job done.
  • You’ll get all the tools you need – a new iPhone or Google phone, a new Macbook Pro or Dell, and a lot of branded swag!

But hold on, you mentioned a house of brands? 

We certainly did! Mantel Group is an Australian-owned, ‘house of brands’ company with four technology businesses (Eliiza being one of them!) across Melbourne and Sydney. We’re building a group of companies with open borders so we can support you to take on new skills and challenges without leaving an awesome team – we know you won’t have one job for life! 

We may only be just two years old but Mantel Group has already been recognised #4 in the AFR’s 2020 fastest growing new companies and #4 on LinkedIn’s Top Australian Startups to work for in Australia.
