Data Science

Our data scientists employ advanced mathematics, statistics, and computer science (ML and algorithmic), together with industry knowledge, to tackle business problems for clients ranging from governments to Silicon Valley tech giants.

We also serve as an R&D function for the company, developing internal tools and proof of concepts to put us ahead of the market.

What we do

We develop, adapt, tune, and scale advanced machine learning models, leveraging a high-performance cloud-based tech stack.

Examples of current engagements include:

  • Automated document classification using NLP
  • Geospatial modelling of electric vehicle demand
  • Communication/reputation analytics
  • Identifying sanctions breaches with unsupervised learning
  • Graph analysis of financial data
  • Anomaly detection in API call data

As a Data Scientist with FTI Consulting, you’ll work alongside people from a range of backgrounds. Within your first year, you will have the chance to work on multiple projects and proof-of-concepts in different domains, with opportunities to specialise according to what interests you. Your colleagues will challenge you, and help you to grow in both technical and business capabilities.

You’ll develop advanced machine learning models, leveraging high performance servers within an AWS tech stack to test and deploy your work. With a strong focus on learning and R&D, and an environment that values input from employees of all levels, you’ll be expected to put forward your own ideas, and encouraged to upskill in areas that interest you—particularly as we expand our capabilities to include distributed computing and GPU accelerated training.

Some of the day to day tasks include:

  • Descriptive analysis of client datasets
  • Enrich existing project datasets with new sources through individual research
  • Statistical analysis, transformation, and cleaning of datasets
  • Propose and implement (code) alternatives and refinements to models, to enhance pipeline robustness, efficiency, and performance
  • Research into latest progress in the realm of machine learning and statistical analysis, and how these developments can be applied to current project pipelines or future prospects
