Data Scientist - Marketing at carwow
London, GB / England, GB

At carwow, we’re aiming to create the best car-buying experience in the world. Buying a car is normally the 2nd biggest financial decision people face (after buying a house), and it’s a complex one. There are many issues people face throughout the process, and we aim to fix them. We’re a driven, energetic startup with a team of 200+ based in London, Munich and Madrid. We are backed by some of Europe’s leading VCs and have raised over £75m in funding since we launched, so we’re growing fast. We’re constantly asking ourselves how we can make carwow better, so if you’re curious, motivated, and want to help us change the future of car buying, get in touch. It’s the chance to be at the start of something huge.

The Role

We’re looking for a superstar to join the data team as a Marketing Data Scientist. We work on impactful projects across our entire marketing mix, such as marketing incrementality, TV measurement, PPC bidding, propensity modelling, and sales forecasting. Our responsibilities and thus our skill sets are varied; we are engaged in projects from data engineering and architecture to modeling and analysis, from strategy and approach to implementation and automation. Most importantly, our work and voices are instrumental in the carwow’s decisions of how and where to invest in marketing. Our analyses, predictions, and recommendations found the backbone of our marketing strategy.

We strive to find the best balance between technical skills and commercial nous to create significant value for carwow. You will work on a team of 10 Data Scientists & Analysts within a smaller group focused primarily on Marketing. We work with well-maintained data, use great technology (our stack is documented here) and have one of the richest data sources in automotive. The right candidate is self-driven, has a passion for data and above all is excited about putting Data Science at the heart of carwow.
