Senior Data Scientist

Salary Competitive
Belfast is hiring for a Data Scientist to join our growing team. This is a unique opportunity for the Belfast market!

What is Slice?

Slice is the leading technology and marketing platform made exclusively for local pizzerias, making it super easy to order delicious, authentic local pizza anywhere, anytime. We serve the $44 billion U.S. pizzeria market in two ways: by providing a pizza-centric mobile and web ordering experience for consumers, and by empowering local restaurants with the technology, tools, and marketing to grow their business, while helping them compete with Big Pizza. Can you imagine what a small mom and pop pizza shop could achieve with the resources of Domino’s?

Slice was born in 2011 and has quietly bootstrapped its way to building a network of more than 10,000 pizzerias nationwide. Ilir Sela, our founder and CEO, started the company as a passion project to help his friends and family in the pizza business, but he quickly saw a massive opportunity to champion these small businesses by bringing their bites to the masses. Ilir has since built an amazing team of operators, marketers, technologists, and investors — all dedicated to making it easier for people to enjoy their favourite local pizza.

 

What you’ll do.

  • Leverage your quantitative expertise to understand how Slice can apply supply and demand levers to unlock marketplace opportunities; techniques will include experiment design, predictive modelling, observational analysis, pattern recognition and any others as needed

  • Partner with Product and Marketing teams to set clear goals, measure progress against them and influence their respective roadmaps

  • Ensure consistent tracking, analysis, and reporting of core product and marketing programs and channel KPIs in weekly dashboards

  • Build and maintain executive dashboards in Looker

  • Improve the accessibility and organisation of data

  • Collaborate with Data Engineering to understand all data flows, build new flows as needed and create appropriate data dictionaries for business users

  • Simplify complex raw data into user friendly explores, looks, and dashboards for audiences across the organization

  • Perform complex ad-hoc data and analysis requests

 

What we're looking for:

  • 4+ years of specialised experience in Data Science or Advanced Analytics solving complex analytical problems in a technology environment

  • Proficiency in Python and SQL

  • Fluency in at least one statistical software (R preferred), Excel and at least one visualisation tool (Looker, Mode, Tableau, etc.)

  • Strong data modelling and transformation skills

  • Excellent verbal and written communication skills

  • Strong communication skills

  • Able to clearly express opinions on product design, while respecting the thoughts and opinions of their peers.

  • Proven ability to communicate and collaborate effectively with engineers and non-engineering stakeholders alike.

 

Interested?

We operate like a startup, so being self-motivated, curious, and flexible is a good start. You prefer to come up with your own solutions to problems but are not afraid to ask for help. You enjoy making suggestions for how to improve our product and business, no matter the department. You’re the kind of person who roots for the underdog. And lastly, this job will probably be a lot easier if you have a soulmate-level love for authentic pizza.


Why Slice?

Join a community of best-in-class engineers who combine creativity, curious minds and a commitment to excellence with the desire and commitment to grow and build on the engineering skill base and community here in NI. Missing a few of the criteria but have worked in a pizza shop? Why not get in touch!

Slice

Slice is the leading technology and marketing platform made exclusively for local pizzerias, making it super easy to order delicious, authentic local pizza anywhere, anytime.  Slice was born in 2009 and has quietly bootstrapped its way to building a network of more than 8,000 pizzerias nationwide. Ilir Sela, our founder and CEO, started the company as a passion project to help his friends and family in the pizza business, but he quickly saw a massive opportunity to champion these small businesses by bringing their bites to the masses. Ilir has since built an amazing team of operators, marketers, technologists, and investors — all dedicated to making it easier for people to enjoy their favourite local pizza. We celebrate pizza as the ultimate shareable food: It turns everyday moments into memories and brings together friends, families, and communities. And when you order pizza from a place in your neighborhood, you support a local business. So whether you call it a pizza parlor, slice joint, or pizzeria, we’re here to help you order authentic local pizza and live your best slice life. Local pizzerias are the cornerstone of communities across the country. They handcraft the one food that unites us all: pizza. It fuels our celebrations, family dinners, and busiest days. While pizza lovers crave their favorite local pie, they also crave convenience. This has led people to sacrifice the quality, authentic food of mom-and-pop shops for quick and easy chain pizza. But we believe nobody needs to make that sacrifice. You can have your pie and eat it too. Slice is uniting and empowering local pizzerias with tech, data, and marketing to take charge of their industry, to bring their business into the digital world, and to provide handcrafted, quality pizza with the utmost convenience. Unlike other online ordering services that drive down a pizzeria’s quality and value by charging high order fees, Slice builds a true partnership for a fair cost. We treat our pizzerias like family — with full support, transparency, and championship. This allows shops to expand their business while focusing only on creating the best food imaginable. Better pizza for pizza lovers, bigger profits for pizzerias, and a better experience for all. We believe pizza isn’t just food. It’s a slice of community, a slice of culture, a slice of life.
