Would you like to be part of the growing global data science team analysing the huge volume of data, generated from the millions of flights a year, that help keep the travel industry in motion?

• Over 36 million passenger itineraries are processed each year to alert corporate travel companies, travel agencies and airlines, so that travellers stay up-to-date with flight status and airlines minimize disruption
• Over US$300 billion worth of airline tickets are analysed for market insights
• Over 35 million airline flights are tracked per month covering over 97% of scheduled flights worldwide and more than 90% of commercial aircraft in service so that engine manufacturers can keep track of the per hour use of their engines
• US$5.3 trillion worth of aircraft assets are valued by Cirium each year, as part of strategy and pricing partnerships with the world’s top 50 lessors and tier one investment banks


We want to hear from you if you believe:

• You want to be part of a team that delivers exceptional data analysis and innovative and transformational product offerings

Whatever your background you are welcome. We are looking for talented and dynamic team players who focus on delivering successful outcomes.

We are a business where over 20 languages are spoken, where some leaders have grey hair and some have pink. Where our sales teams take time out to support local schools and our product teams champion local women back into the workplace. Cirium has 11 offices in the UK, North America, Singapore, China, Japan and Hong Kong and we celebrate our global diversity through events and networks throughout the year. Cirium is part of RBI, which is part of RELX, a FTSE 100 traded company (which was just named by Forbes as one of the world’s most innovative companies)
Our benefits stand out (they even include two days a year for you to dedicate to the charitable activity of your choice). Cirium and RBI are founding members of the Tech Talent Charter, committed to increasing the ratio of women and under-represented groups working in technology
