Would you like to join an ambitious and forward looking unit of analysts, researchers and data experts, working for one of the world’s truly global cities?

The Greater London Authority (GLA) is working with the big data analytics specialist, Mastodon C to create a solution ‘Witan’ which allows subject experts and policy makers to integrate different types of hard and soft model, in order to explore scenarios for the futures of their cities.

You will play a key role in the project, working closely with GLA staff and Mastodon C’s team.

You will also gather user stories from policy teams and analysts and devise/apply tests for Witan modules as they progress through Alpha and Beta releases.

This is a great opportunity to develop your skills and experience, but you will need to bring with you a strong technical background including practical application of data science in a work setting.

In addition to a good salary package, we offer an attractive range of benefits including 30 days annual leave, interest free season ticket loan, interest free bicycle loan, childcare voucher scheme and a career average pension scheme.

London’s diversity is its biggest asset and we strive to ensure our workforce reflects London’s diversity at all levels. Applications from Black, Asian and Minority ethnic candidates will be particularly welcomed as they are currently under-represented in this area of our organisation.
