Job description

Headquartered in Brighton, UK, Sopro provides sophisticated digital marketing services to hundreds of businesses, from innovative start-ups to sector leaders and global brands.

We have spent seven years redefining B2B demand generation techniques and proving that there are more predictable, higher quality ways to harness technology to create demand.

Receiving a Best Place to Work award by the UK Business Awards 2021, we’ve been busy collecting awards for our people, service, technology and business results. With >100% revenue and headcount growth 7 years running we are proud to be one of the UK’s fastest growing digital marketing agencies.

Sopro is part of the Sopro Holdings group.

The project

At Sopro we have an exciting new 3-month project opportunity within our Data Science Team.

The goal of this project is to generate a hierarchical job title/role taxonomy and normalise and group job titles in order to categorise them according to a specified taxonomy.

As a company, we have accumulated a database of records for all the specific roles people across various companies and industries hold, to inform future marketing campaigns. Targeting the right audience is vital for a campaign to be successful and it is therefore important that we can build a hierarchy of normalised job titles in order to categorise the specific roles and classify whether they are decision makers within their organisations.

During this project you will have access to Sopro database that holds millions of records containing unique job titles and roles within different industries and departments.
