Cirium’s datasets are under constant review, change and improvement. We require a Data Researcher with broad aviation knowledge with particular interest in Commercial and Military aircraft. However, aviation knowledge is not a total requirement if the successful candidate has a good aptitude for learning or a track record of researching. The successful candidate will have a keen attention to detail and the ability to work collaboratively as well as in isolation to achieve a range of data tasks. These will range from document processing, ETL, quality checks, connecting disparate data points to one another and combining the data we receive with our existing datasets, to provide the best in class data for our clients. An ability to see the bigger picture of our data and how our clients use our data is important so being comfortable with working towards commercial objectives as well as personal ones is an important aspect and training will be provided to aid this.
