Data Science Graduate Scheme
Transport for London
The wealth of data which is generated by TfL’s systems — from Oyster card taps to train carriage temperatures — should be intrinsically interesting to a Data Scientist, whose job it is to discover underlying patterns and present valuable information to our customers and internal teams. Your approach to analyses will be constantly developing to keep up with the latest machine learning and big data techniques, however you will be expected to build on solid statistical foundations and mathematical skills.
Data science is used in a variety of ways across TfL and excellent communication skills are required to understand new problems and projects and work with a wide variety of people. As experts in the company’s data, you will be expected to take the lead in shaping analysis, forming imaginative proposals, and delivering in a timely manner.
Computer code underpins all the work that you do, with R, Python and SQL used most often. You will need a deep understanding of statistics, a numerical mind, and excellent reasoning skills to succeed, but you will be supported by a strong analytical community and training opportunities to reach your potential.
