Data Scientist - Market Models

Switzerland, Basel

Today, Lonza is a global leader in life sciences operating across three continents. While we work in science, there’s no magic formula to how we do it. Our greatest scientific solution is talented people working together, devising ideas that help businesses to help people. In exchange, we let our people own their careers. Their ideas, big and small, genuinely improve the world. And that’s the kind of work we want to be part of.

We are looking for a new Data Scientist in the Market Modelling & Planning team to contribute to the development of novel market forecasting models and use them to provide meaningful business insights across all Business Units and functions of the organization (Sales, Marketing, Strategy, M&A…).

In this role you will use your data science and analytics skills to contribute both technically and conceptually to the development of our market forecasting models.

With your business acumen, strategy and communication skills, you’ll provide Business Units managers and directors with insights you’ll build through quantitative analysis.

You’ll act as a thought partner with the Head of Market Modelling & Planning to identify and take an active role in developing new modelling applications, enhance the analytical culture of the company and help shaping the strategic vision of the company.

If you have an unquenchable curiosity for insight hidden in data, if you’re not afraid of facing and solving open problems, if you have the desire to make a difference in a large company with analytics… we want to hear from you!

This is what should be in your resume:

  • 3+ years practical experience in data or statistical analysis

  • Excellent communication capabilities (business writing, storytelling, presentations to individuals outside of your expertise field)

  • Proficient with Python, Numpy, Pandas

  • Proficient with standard analytical tools (Excel, SQL…)

  • Fluency in English (additional languages are a plus)

  • Experience in software development is a strong plus

  • Experience in data visualization tools is a plus

But this is what will really matter:

  • Passion for problem solving and analytics

  • Curious and proactive when dealing with data

  • Structured strategic mindset, looking for the “big picture”

  • Ready to embrace complexity, face uncertainty and remove down-to-earth obstacles one by one

  • Not afraid of Python

  • Always eager to learn and grow. And teach your manager.

Every day, Lonza’s products and services have a positive impact on millions of people. For us, this is not only a great privilege but also a great responsibility. How we achieve our business results is just as important as the achievements themselves. At Lonza, we respect and protect our people and our environment. Any success we achieve is no success at all if not achieved ethically.

People come to Lonza for the challenge and creativity of solving complex problems and developing new ideas in life sciences. In return, we offer the satisfaction that comes with improving lives all around the world. The satisfaction that comes with making a meaningful difference.
