Maritime Data Scientist

Join the Growth Story at Envitia

We’re a software and services company on a growth trajectory with 20+ years of experience in delivering world-class location and data software and expertise to customers in the public and private sector.

Following a re-organisation last year, the company had a hugely successful 2018 – all down to an amazing group of people.  We’re now looking to grow and build a team that is hungry for success. We’re creating a culture that is fun, supportive yet challenging, and we’re looking for talented like-minded people to join us on this journey.  We’re also looking for people who are comfortable in challenging the norm so we can get truly diverse thinking when solving problems and not just senior management making decisions – we really believe in empowerment.

What do we do? In short, we solve complex data problems to help our customers make better and faster decisions. We do this through our team of data consultants who undertake cutting edge R&D projects or work with customers to find the best data modelling approach, architecture and standards so they’re able to make use of their data.  Or, through our software products where we enable customers to search for, and then visualise, data so they have great situational awareness and can make better decisions.
