Job Description

Full job description

We operate a hybrid working model and office attendance is required 40% of your contracted hours


We have an opportunity for a talented engineer to join our growing Data Science team and work on our world-leading Active Ad Monitoring system, which processes over 1 million ads a month, and allows the ASA to monitor the state of online advertising and act quickly to protect people where we find problems.

In this role you will help to develop and maintain the tools we use to capture, process, and apply machine learning algorithms to large datasets of ads. You will be part of a small agile team and will have the opportunity to own your work end-to-end, seeing directly how the code you write helps protect UK consumers. You will deliver solutions that are simple, practical and scalable, working in a cloud-based environment, primarily in Python. You will work with a range of industry standard tools such as Docker and Airflow. You will work primarily with unstructured data – namely ads in a variety of formats including images, videos and text from a range of online channels including social media, search and programmatic display.

We’re looking for an individual who believes in our team mission and wants to make an impact through their work. You should be able to work with data in Python to a professional standard and deliver high-quality code that works reliably in a production setting, but do not have to have previously held the job title of Data Engineer. You should also be comfortable collaborating with a mixed team of different backgrounds and communicating your work, including to non-technical stakeholders.

We think the ASA is a great place to work. We have a culture that’s open, friendly and collaborative, with a real focus on making the right decisions in the right way and learning while we’re doing it. We welcome applications from all sections of the community, and we’re committed to being a diverse and inclusive organisation, both so we can represent everyone in the UK and so our own colleagues feel at home at work. We put our people’s safety and security first during the pandemic.




We are the UK’s independent frontline regulator of ads by legitimate businesses and other organisations in all media, including online. We are authoritative and influential on ad regulation; the centre of expertise. The rules we administer and enforce are contained in the UK Advertising Codes, written by the industry Committees of Advertising Practice (CAP). To help maintain our independence from the industry that funds us, we are primarily funded at arm’s length by the Advertising Standards Boards of Finance (Asbof). Together, the ASA, CAP and Asbof make up the ASA system.

Our purpose is to make sure ads are responsible. Our ambition is to make sure every UK ad is a responsible ad. Our values are to be proactive, collaborative, accountable, transparent and decisive. We want external stakeholders to find us to be: independent in administering the Codes; evidence-based, proportionate, targeted and consistent; and reflective of society, not a social engineer.

We are passionate about what we do because responsible ads are good for people, good for society and good for business. They entertain and inform us, helping us to choose products and services. They fund the media, sport and culture we all enjoy. They can be a force for social good, encouraging us to contribute to good causes, make more responsible choices and stay safe. And they help deliver competition and power the economy. By making sure ads are responsible, we protect people from being misled, harmed or offended, helping them feel more confident in the ads they see and hear.
