Job search: Data Scientist leading Data and Knowledge Management (Remote/Hybrid) #jobs


Dear community members,


My open data project has just finished and I am looking for new opportunities.


I am a data scientist leading knowledge management on data-driven software services, and managing teams implementing market intelligence and innovation projects globally. If you have budget for only one person to build, fix or manage your organisation knowledge and data management process, including technology and psychosociology, then I can do that for you.


I have lead national open data infrastructure development projects globally, with a special focus on Africa, with national government and intergovernmental organisations, like the World Bank. While at the Open Knowledge Foundation, I led the development team for CKAN which is the most popular open source data publication platform, and at GE Healthcare I developed and led implementation of their $1.2 million integrated global enterprise market knowledge and data management system. I am a contributor to the SIKM global knowledge management leaders forum, including speaking on data probity in knowledge management.


I have a genuine commitment to the ethical use of data and technology, and of the critical importance of knowledge discoverability in social and economic development.


I have dual British/South African citizenship, a French carte de sejour, and I speak English, Afrikaans and am learning French.
