Aspirant data scientists needed

2019-09-11 06:00

The Shoprite Group calls for aspirant data scientists to sign up for placement in its Data Science Academy.

Intake for the apprenticeship programme is for January 2020.

Interested candidates who qualify, are encouraged to apply before the closing date of 30 September.

Candidates must have a post­graduate degree in one of these fields: Data Science, Mathematics, Statistics, Operational Research, Quantitative Management (or a similar quantitative degree), Computer Science and Actuarial Science. Those who qualify can send a CV and a short motivation to data­science@­

The academy’s key component is the mentoring each apprentice receives from an experienced data scientist. These mentors act as guides for the apprentices who are given real work problems to which they have to apply the knowledge obtained through the academy or at university.

Included in the curriculum are tools and languages, such as Tableau, SQL, Python and AWS Cloud products, which are routinely required when building data science applications. Apprentices also benefit from job immersion and self-paced project work.
