About data science
Our Data Science department at GWI is committed to maintaining the highest quality in our survey data and to helping our customers arrive at the insights they need to understand their audiences. From automated testing and intelligent product features to custom analytical solutions and data observability, we are supporting the business at every level as data is at the very core of what we do. We are actively engaged throughout the entire data life cycle including data cleaning, data processing, data validation, designing and automating data workflows as well as automatically identifying and recommending insights and unexpected findings to our users.
Our team values learning and keeping abreast of the latest research very highly and as a result we’re applying a wide range of techniques across machine learning, statistical analysis and natural language processing to the services and features we build. We are a diverse team with different backgrounds spread across two locations, Athens and London, and growing rapidly. We are at a very exciting junction where we are experimenting with cloud computing technologies as we want to shift towards full ownership of our own Data Platform.

Who we are
GWI was founded with the knowledge that understanding your audience is really important for business. When you know who you’re speaking to and why, you can create content and campaigns that stand out to the people who matter.
Through our global online survey, we gather data on the behaviour and perceptions of consumers across the world. This provides businesses with deep, actionable insights on their audience, revealed from data they trust.
It’s been going well, too. Since launching in 2009, we’ve become one of the UK’s fastest-growing target audience companies. We’re not about to stop growing any time soon. As a business, we’re on a mission to re-engineer data-driven marketing, and we’re on the lookout for talented people to join us.
Diversity & Inclusion
Imagine if our data came from just one kind of person. We’d get a very nuanced view of the world. And we definitely wouldn’t have got off the ground as a business.
Although things certainly aren’t perfect, we live in a society where differences are increasingly celebrated – so we’d expect nothing else from our teams. In fact, the GWI office is as diverse as our global data, it’s really important to us that it stays that way. This is a place to feel at home, express yourself freely, and make your mark.
