What is ProQuo AI?

We’re pioneering a new category, AI Brand Management, by building the first global brand management platform which brings together deep scientific understanding on how brands succeed and immediately actionable growth-driving guidance. 

What is ProQuo like as a place to work?

We work quickly, think strategically, and take ownership over our work. We expect you to help drive towards our vision with commitment to our cause. In return, we provide a fun, lively work environment with passionate people. We will listen to your ideas, support their execution, and give you credit for your work.

What is the role we are recruiting for?

We’re looking for someone to join our Data Science team. You will be working with a combination of unstructured data and structured data from our database, ingesting and aligning the data, then building AI/ML models and coding algorithms which allow us to understand the data better and answer business questions. Some of your models or algorithms will be packaged for use in our platform.

What would your responsibilities be?

  • Translate a business request for data, information, metric, measurement or analysis into a technical data requirement, and draw meaningful conclusions from the result.
  • Apply Bayesian statistical analysis to business problems
  • Identify opportunities for using the latest AI/ML techniques, services and libraries to solve for customer needs.
  • Experiment with new tools and technologies to produce effective solutions to user needs.
  • Take the lead in design and implementation of services, ensuring the build of well-tested software that has few regressions.
  • Own the design and development of entire proof-of-concept systems
  • Ensure that – once productionised – our models remain relevant and performant.
  • Collaborate with wider ProQuo AI teams to deliver on objectives on time and to a consistent high quality.

How would you contribute to ProQuo AI’s success?

ProQuo AI uses data and models to develop products. AI is right in the name. To do this effectively, we need experienced developers who can work with all kinds of data and build useful models. Your ideas can end up driving value in our product or in our business itself. We have high buy-in from management to drive these techniques, so you have no barriers to entry but your own ability.

What skills, strengths, experience, and attributes you need?

  • Ability to work effectively in an iterative agile development process, using Jira, Git etc.
  • Multi-language software development experience, with willingness to learn new technologies.
  • Fluent (3+ years) in Python (with pandas, matplotlib and numpy / scipy / scikit-learn) and SQL
  • Able to handle basic Bash / Shell scripting
  • AWS Cloud infrastructure experience.
  • Big Data experience will be useful.
  • Linux experience.
  • Excellent communication skills, with the ability to articulate detailed technical concepts at a high level.

Why join us?

  • Salary: R 600,000 per annum
  • Share Option Package
  • Company Private Medical Scheme
  • Company Pension
  • 25 Days Holiday & Your Birthday Off!
  • Commitment to your well-being with subscriptions to MasterClass & Calm

But today, more than ever, we think you want and deserve a package that is about far more than just financial reward. You want a company where you belong, a company that values you, and a place you can go far. That’s why our people proposition is about far more than just money. It’s a unique, holistic approach that reflects the unique people who join us.
