Ours is the story of the eternal upstart and change is in our DNA. We were born with the ambition to change the world through media. Raised in Asia, we are now the world's most geographically balanced global network spanning US, Latin America, Europe and Asia. Mindshare's birth in 1997 shifted the focus from media as a pure commodity to media as a change agent.
Our ambition was to go beyond the traditional media descriptors of "Optimise, Capitalise, Maximise." We will not be defined by the formulaic definitions of media. Mindshare's story is about teamwork. It's why we called ourselves Mindshare in the first place!
We were designed to be a global network, balanced in every region, with clients benefitting from both global and local insights. Today 75% of our business is global and our global network and integrated approach is our strength. We are a global media agency network with billings in excess of US$ 24 billion (source: COMvergence ) and our network consists of more than 7,000 employees, in 116 offices across 86 countries. Mindshare is part of GroupM, which oversees the media investment management sector for WPP, the world's leading communications services group.
Discrimination, oppression and inequities towards people of different race, ethnicity, gender, sexuality, abilities, age or any other differences, are unacceptable and have no place in the world or amongst our Mindshare family. We strive for an environment where everyone is treated fairly and respectfully, has equal access to opportunities and resources, whose voice is heard and who can contribute to the organi s ation's success.
We are looking for an experienced hands-on data scientist to lead the data science thinking and practice. The role is based in Mindshare's worldwide team in London, with responsibilities to support other markets.

It is also expected that the candidate can support and contribute to the overall data strategy for Mindshare in collaboration with other stakeholders, which entitles foster partnerships/initiatives with start-ups, universities, open-source groups, etc.
