Use your skills to move the world forward.


The team is established and last year won the Data Analytics and Artificial Intelligence Project of the Year with Yorkshire Water for using AI to predict potential pollution events into rivers.

Three functions support each other in delivering projects: Engineering who understand how to connect to assets and bring data from site in to the cloud; DevOps who take an application from user experience development to v1 product approved for release in Siemens global portfolio; and Data Science, which generates the analytical methods, supports their integration in to the applications, and finally validating customer value in project delivery.

You will be expected to build your skills during your employment, particularly with regards to your technical knowledge and ability to communicate your findings to non-technical stakeholders or customers. Siemens will support your growth with access to training courses and a worldwide community of data scientists.

The team has an open and collaborative culture and so depending on your interest you will also have the opportunity to be involved in product roadmapping discussions and technical sales with customers.
