| Job Description |

We are a team of passionate data science and data engineering experts with a combined experience of more than 25 years. We are diverse in our background and culture and we cater to a growing client base demanding cutting-edge analytics solution.

As Data Scientists and Engineers (being part of the AI/Data Team), we sit in the engine room of our digital transformation. Our mission is to build the analytic core of our data-driven products which help our clients to make better decisions, to enable our clients optimize their processes through AI. We deliver innovative and prescriptive analytics on top of unique data sets. At KPMG Ignition Tokyo, data science solutions do not just support sales or streamline processes - they are the product! A perfect playground for creative minds who have fun shaping things.

We develop our offerings with an agile mindset - business, tech and data science working hand in hand to create products that will make us the indispensable data and analytics partner for our clients. This is why we do not lock up our data scientists/engineers in the basement of our building but co-locate them in inspiring collaboration spaces that facilitate cross-functional work.

We are not looking for somebody who covers all areas of the data science/engineering Venn diagram. Our projects are challenging - so it's quite likely you need to leave your comfort zone in order to deliver compelling solutions. We encourage creativity in thinking and flexibility to think out-of-the-box in solving business problems.

Your professional remit in detail includes the following tasks:

  • Ingest, process, manage data from external data sources with ETL frameworks
