Data, Analytics & AI Front End Engineer - Baringa Solutions

Overview:
Baringa Solutions is looking for a dynamic and enthusiastic front-end engineer to start and build our UI engineering and UX practice. You will be first on the ground, giving you opportunity to set direction, determine strategy, use the tools you want to use, and build the kind of products that you want to build.

We are a team of software engineers, data scientists, analysts and architects creating AI and ML solutions for our clients. We are a start-up within Baringa - a leading consultancy specialising in energy & resources, financial services and products & services, in the UK and continental Europe.

Baringa Solutions sits within our Data Analytics and AI practice. We help our clients control their data, turn their data into insight and we embed AI into their businesses. Our experienced team support clients across different industries with deep expertise in Data Strategy, Data Science & Engineering, Visualisation and User Interface design, and software development.

All applications will receive consideration for employment without regard to ethnicity, religion, gender, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, nationality, disability, age, or social background.

What will you be doing?
You will use your engineering and design skills to create compelling user experiences to our clients’ business challenges, working closely with industry specialists, data scientists and architects.
 
You will be a thought leader, thinking and determining how you can effectively present AI and ML.
 
You will create and use best practice, build cloud and on-prem hosted web apps, and work with management to build our team and build our brand.
What’s in it for both of us?
You may be currently working in a design-agency, start-up, software house or tech department – wherever you come from, you want to be hands-on building product that delights customers, and you want to do it whilst working with like-minded people. You already showcase your design skills, and you want to carry on doing it – both to people in your company and outside. You may not be that far along in your career – that is ok, it is desire to grow your skills and build a name for yourself that we are interested in.
