Opportunity alert: Data Scientist/Analyst

Do you want to be at the pulse of digital policy in Africa? Do you have ideas about how data can be used innovatively to develop an evidence base for policymakers to ensure digital inclusion and contribute to sustainable development? Are you comfortable moving between economic and social indicators and technical measurements and big data analytics? Are you excited about how the flood of data and information being generated may be made accessible, visualised and interactive? How does working at a think tank based in a reclaimed warehouse in the tech and design heart of Cape Town with a view of the iconic Table Mountain, South Africa sound?
