Are you ready to glean insights into the future of the markets from the most comprehensive corpus of alternative financial data?  Are you eager to unleash the full power of machine learning to create novel answers to previously intractable problems?  We are doing just that, and we need your help.


IHS Markit serves more than 50,000 key customers in more than 140 countries, including 80 percent of the Fortune Global 500. We help decision makers apply higher-level thinking to daily tasks and strategic issues across a host of industries and disciplines including finance, energy, automotive, engineering, technology, maritime and trade, aerospace and defense, chemical, and economics and country risk.


The Issuer Services & Global Insights group employs hundreds of economists and financial experts to provide critical intelligence to public corporations, and governments.  We employ data science techniques to analyze financial transactions, macro factors, industry details and hundreds of unique data sets to “know the mind of the investor”.  Our machine learning models have been wildly accurate, even through the unprecedented post-Covid economy.  We are looking for an experienced Data Scientist to take our flagship prediction platform to the next level.

  • Own and lead projects, design and implement experiments, write production-quality code
  • Collaborate with Software Engineers and DevOps to automate workflows and apply scientific methods to solve business and engineering problems


Who you are:

  • You can work independently but have great collaboration skills
  • You have 5+ years of related work experience in data analysis and machine learning (such as logistic regression, random forest, gradient boosting, clustering, classification, deep learning) and understand their real-world advantages/drawbacks on large datasets

  • Deployment and maintenance of machine learning solutions in production
  • Applying advanced statistical techniques and concepts (hypothesis testing, Bayesian statistics, properties of distributions) and experience with applications.
  • Python, SQL
  • Presenting results, insights and recommendations to executives and non-technical audiences
