NEWS: OptaPro expanding data science team

OptaPro’s data science team is expanding with numerous jobs across the team now available, covering areas across data modeling, analysis and data engineering.

Working across both OptaPro and Opta, the team works at the intersection of many teams within the wider organisation. The data science team builds models and metrics based on sport data, usually football. Those metrics are used for applied engagements including consulting services and presentations.

There will be plenty of opportunity to work with all members of the team, and there's freedom in each role to select the relevant technologies and processes to get the work done.
