Who are we?

 Senseye is a high-growth startup pioneering automated predictive maintenance in the manufacturing sector. We provide a cloud-based service and consumer-grade web application underpinned by cutting-edge analytics.

We work closely with other teams (Product, Design, Engineering and non-research Data Scientists) to deliver high-quality functionality and an elegant user experience.

Our core algorithms are designed to extract insights from streaming time series data by processing this data in light of contextual information relating to machine structure/behavior and user interactions with the application.

We have a high-performing analytics stack, built from proprietary and open-source algorithms, that routinely processes very large quantities of time series data. Nevertheless, we are still near the beginning, and there is much more we can do with our data. We are looking for a smart, energetic data scientist to help us realise this potential.

  • Experience working in a commercial environment.
  • Ability to liaise across the business with engineers, designers, delivery engineers and others.
  • Liaise with other teams to help ensure we have a seamless, integrated product that delights our users.


Key attributes

  • Excellent analytical skills.
  • Excited by hard problems.
  • PhD in a technical subject is preferred.
  • Proficient in Python.
  • Experience analysing time series data would be advantageous.


  • Flexible working (we are a remote-first company).
  • Generous leave (25 days, increasing with tenure).
  • Huge opportunities for learning and professional growth.
  • Bonusly employee reward scheme.
  • Great startup culture.
