About us 

auticon is a social enterprise whose mission is to provide long-term career opportunities for autistic adults.  We employ autistic people as IT and Data Consultants, and they deliver high-quality services to our clients. As autism is the cornerstone of our social mission, we do ask applicants for these roles to provide evidence of an autism spectrum condition diagnosis or confirmation that they are considering obtaining a diagnosis. 

Are you autistic and looking for a career in data science? Do you have good attention to detail, pattern recognition and error-detection or have an analytical mindset? Would you like to work in an environment where neurodiversity is celebrated and autistic staff are supported to thrive? 

Our business is growing, we are expanding our Dublin practice and are looking for data scientists, data analysts and data engineers to join our team of talented autistic consultants. We recruit on a rolling basis with flexible start dates. 

What the role involves 

You will join our consulting team which comprises Associates, Consultants and Senior Consultants.  You will be a permanent employee of auticon, but most of your day-to-day work will be with one of our clients. You will add skills and expertise to the client’s team or project. Most of our clients are large multinational organisations who require expertise in areas such as data analysis, data visualisaton, data engineering, machine learning or AI.  You get the chance to work on interesting assignments with our clients, whilst still having all of the support of being an auticon employee.  When you are between projects, your employment with us continues and we support you to further develop your skills. 

What we offer 

  • A salary of €29,000 – €47,000 (dependent upon skills and experience)
  • Normally €29,000 – €36,000 for Associates with lower levels of work experience, or €33,000 – €47,000 for Consultants with more relevant work experience or practical application of skills via a PhD for example.
  • Permanent contract that includes valuable autism-tailored benefits, such as the ongoing support of a dedicated Coach who provides practical and emotional support to help you thrive in your role.
  • Min 33 days annual leave, including bank holidays with optional annual leave purchase available
  • Private health insurance package
  • Friendly and productive work environment where reasonable adjustments are understood and encouraged
  • Personal development with fully funded courses
