At THE ICONIC, innovation drives us; we believe that innovation should not be sitting in a silo team but rather be part of everyone and everything we do & deliver. Every person in tech has a voice and we find that our best products are achieved through collaboration (usually over a coffee in front of a whiteboard). We love to move fast and validate learning using data (lucky for us our Data Science & Analytics team is world-class!)

We look for Data Scientists who can solve complex data problems and are experts in data analysis. Our systems handle a massive amount of traffic, and with more than 5 million customers visiting each month, it’s guaranteed you’re going to get first-hand feedback from customers on the code you deploy!
