Current vacancies

A note to all agencies and recruiters:

We don’t want to be rude but we are running out of ways to politely say NO. On average we receive 3 calls a day from agencies. We know you are trying to help, and that you represent excellent candidates, but we simply don’t have the time to deal with so many calls so please don’t waste your time; the answer will always be a firm NO.

Who are we?

Brainnwave are primarily a growing startup working in the data and analytics space.

We are a start/scale up with a difference: we are backed by some of the largest VC and family office funds in the world and we work with some of the biggest companies in the world to unleash the potential of data.

We don’t really know what it means to be Scotland’s “most exciting” or “fastest growing” start up as we have no way to measure ourselves like that.

What we do know is our people love coming to work, our customers love what we do and we have the potential to change the way global businesses gain disruptive insight from data.

We are a team of like-minded people who enjoy working hard and spending time together both at work and socially.

We are now scaling up our team to meet customer demand and are looking for talented individuals to join us.

Life at Brainnwave

At Brainnwave you will be part of a small team doing exciting things with data and business intelligence.

You won't be bored, nor micro-managed. We value talent and we want you to have a voice in the company.

We like to work hard, but we also have a healthy work-life balance and a range of social activites always on the go.

In the office, you'll be provided with the right kit for the job, and we'll make every attempt to accommodate your requirements. You'll be paid a competitive wage, NI and pension contributions and will have unlimited holidays.

We do lunches together from time to time and there are a bunch of perks (such as innovation funds and budget for conferences and learning) but you get the idea: we're keen for people to wake up in the morning and want to come and do good work.

Life in Edinburgh

Not only do we think Edinburgh is one of the best small cities in the world, it's safe, friendly and well connected.

As a centre for innovation, finance, technology and media it's top, with a very strong start-up scene. We've got fibre optic in most places, the rent isn't sky-high, and everywhere is walkable.

We have festivals for everything, but the most inconspicous of all is the Edinburgh Fringe Festival which sees millions of visitors descend on the city in August, for a month of comedy, theatre, music, performance and entertainment. As well as this annual even, there are film festivals, book festivals, science festivals and celebrations of just about every concievable type. Not to mention Europe's biggest street-party, Edinburgh's Hogmanay celebrations at new year.

It's not all festivals though. We have a big selection of both high-street and boutique shops, a crazy-good scene for foodies, with local brands, eateries and drinkeries (is that a word?) in abundance. There's never any shortage of incredible sustinance. Night life is strong with great bars and clubs across the city from student dives to secret bars, from pop-up events to long-established clubnights.

Oh and if you're looking for historical culture, there's plenty. From a stonking great castle in the middle of the city, to hidden underground tours, museums, galleries, palaces and manor houses, we have all the old stuff you could possibly want to walk round.

Oh yeah, there's also a number of parks, gardens, and natural beauty around if you want to run up a massive hill, round a big meadow or along a beautiful river.

And if you run out of stuff to do (which you won't) then Glasgow's just an hour away on the train.

Brainnwave are helping change the way we do business. The platform enables us to make more informed decisions. The platform Brainnwave are developing is using data analytics to provide us with the insights that we cannot access today due to the complexity of the questions we need to answer. This will be a game changer for our global business.
