Machine Learning & Data Expert


What makes people go to work?

Catapult is the worlds fastest growing on-demand staffing marketplace. Every day some of the best known hospitality and retail brands are staffed by our incredible workers. Over the last couple of years we've generated a lot of data. We've sent out millions of job offers and stored everything, who applied, how long did it take them to apply, how far away was it from them, did they cancel, did they show up for the shift. Now we're looking for someone to help us make use of that data.

This role

We want to understand what is realistically achievable with this dataset and what tools should be used. Can we gain interesting insights using Apache PredictionIO, should we be adapting a traditional recommendation engine or looking at TensorFlow etc.

We're looking for someone who's worked with multiple different machine learning approaches to take a deep drive into our datasets, experiment with different tools and approaches and give us a feel for what can be done. You'd be working directly with the development team and CTO as well as a highly data driven management team.

Structure of role

We see this as being initially an explorative contract role with the potential for a full time role.
