Title: Data Scientist

Employment Type: Full-Time

Location: Remote, Sri Lanka


We are looking for an experienced Data Scientist who would be excited to work on a novel project delivering actionable insights from zero/first-party consumer data.

The ideal candidate would be involved in developing novel computational pipelines (using open-source programming environments), permitting Vault to determine the quality and veracity of its data repositories. This framework would provide an essential foundation for developing novel machine-learning algorithms, allowing Vault to gain rapid and informative insights into consumer behaviour.

Job Description

Vault Data is seeking to recruit a candidate for the role of Data Scientist with immediate effect. The individual must have direct project experience in either an industrial or academic setting. We will consider candidates educated to either BSc or MSc level depending upon their combined knowledge and experience. The individual must evidence an ability to exploit open-source computing languages, including Python and R, as this will be a key requisite for this role.

A major objective for this pivotal position will be the development of quality control pipelines using objective statistical reporting metrics that can be applied towards the analysis of structured (in the first instance), semi-structured and unstructured data sources. The goal will be to integrate these statistical measurements into an overall quality assurance program that can be used to concisely report the company’s performance to both technical and non-technical personnel.

Vault requires that the Data Scientist is a team player, given that the candidate will be expected to work closely with a variety of specialities, including Cloud Engineers and machine learning/AI architects. Given the sensitivity of the personal data that will be collected and processed by the candidate, all activities pipelines must be integrated into an overall quality assurance programme (e.g. ISO27001).


The requirements listed are for guidelines only. You do not have to satisfy all of the conditions listed. If your skills are transferable, we encourage you to apply. Applying presents an opportunity for you to be considered.

  • Experience of producing web-based reporting tools (e.g. Shiny (R) dashboards)
  • Five years experience working as a Data Scientist

Our interview process is either a 2 or 3-stage process (it is very rarely 3), and we even give candidates the option to choose how they would like to be assessed for technical interviews, as we understand people work differently from each other 🙂.

We prefer a technical discussion, a pair programming session, a design review, or a debate on agile anti-patterns, but if you prefer a take-home assessment instead, we have platforms that are easy to use. We don't expect you to spend more than 30 - 45 minutes of your valuable time taking the assessment!

Regardless of the outcome, we aim to give every candidate feedback and encourage candidates to provide us with one too!
