Data Scientist


Tigerspike is an Apple Mobility Partner, AWS Advanced Consulting Partner,and one of the most recognised specialist enterprise mobility companies in the world.

We work on exciting projects and we’re looking for a Data Scientist, who enjoys a challenge, to join us.

You’ll work with talented and passionate people, who love what they do, in an informal, yet high energy office.

So, if you love technology, have a passion for innovation and thrive in a team-based environment then read on...

Tell me more!

We take our client's visions from concept to release in as little as eight weeks, and often work together to evolve products for years.

You’ll gain experience with industries that range from NGOs to Transport and have the opportunity to nurture products and see them through to completion and into maintenance.

Whilst many of our projects are native mobile apps and web apps, our goal is to stay at the forefront of innovation by applying design thinking to our client’s business problems.  That drive has lead us to experiment with wearables, VR/AR, Machine Learning, and IoT devices (especially as enabled by the cloud). The clients we partner with range from boutique to multinational, whose users span from passengers in public transport around NSW to farmers and social workers.

As a Data Scientist you'll design, architect, and develop solutions leveraging existing and emerging technologies (open source, AWS, etc.) to process and analyse large, disparate datasets to meet a client’s business requirements. Your skills might also be used in strategy consulting and in making sense of the data we’ve collected for some of our longest supported accounts.

What experience and skills do you need?

The key ingredient to succeed in this newly created position is an entrepreneurial spirit. The successful candidate will be a Data Scientist who’s excited about the potential to build out the whole of Tigerspike's Data Science practice.


  • Experience in combining statistical reasoning and practical computing skills to solve challenging problems using large amounts of data
  • Ability to formulate problems according to Data Science principles
  • Fundamental understanding of statistical modelling
  • Experience in transforming data to prepare it for analysis and reporting
  • Skills in visualising data of various forms including structured, unstructured and spatial data
  • Ability to apply sound ethical principles to ethical issues that arise in Data Science always adhering to relevant statutory requirements (e.g. GDPR)
  • Excellent communication skills, both verbal and written


  • Experience with applying machine learning algorithms and end-to-end statistical processes correctly, and interpret their results
  • Experience in dealing with unstructured data (text, images, video, etc.) by means of Deep Learning
  • Firm understanding of the role of Neural Networks in classification, Computer Vision and Natural Language Processing.
  • Experience in architecting Data Lakes, Data Warehouses, or other “Big Data” solutions.
  • Conversant in multiple statutory requirements with regard to data (e.g. Australian Privacy Principles) and experience with ISO-27001

What’s in it for you?

  • Entrepreneurship - you’ll have a chance to build out the whole of Tigerspike’s Data Science practice
  • Empowerment - to be autonomous within a team that is passionate to deliver quality.  This is a global role that will initially report directly to the CTO.
  • Professional Growth - we know you’re happiest when you’re learning new things, so you’ll be given an annual allowance to spend on your professional growth such as attending a conference or taking a course. It’s like a makeover for your mind!
  • Collaboration - you’ll work in a multi-disciplinary team to deliver high value projects to clients
  • Innovation - our regular Innovation Days allow us to take a break from client work to spend time playing with the latest tech and improving our tools and techniques
  • Travel - as this is a global role, your services may be needed in any one of our many offices.
