Rwanda Revenue Authority is seeking to recruit self-motivated, qualified persons of high
integrity to fill the following position:

DIRECTOR OF DATA SCIENCE UNIT (1 POSITION)

Rwanda Revenue Authority has the ambition to become a data driven organization that sets an
example in Rwanda on the application of modern data science. To do so, RRA has created a data
science team since September 2018 composed today of 7 data scientists and analysts under the
supervision of a principal data scientist. The role of the team is to help RRA improve compliance,
revenue collection and the understanding of taxpayers’ behavior. Since the beginning, the team was
assigned to the Domestic Taxes Department that collects data from approximately 2.5 million sales
transactions by VAT registered taxpayers each month.

Given the initial success of the team, RRA has decided to expand its reach on the path for RRA to
become a full data driven tax authority. We are creating a data science unit and hiring people for 7
different positions. With this expansion, we will move to a central position in the organization and
start applying data science projects across all departments. A dedicated Data Analytics team will be
assigned to the Domestic Taxes Department to guarantee the continuity of what has already been
achieved.

As part of the data science unit you will get the chance to work with a wide variety of data to deliver
high impact value projects to improve compliance, revenue collection and the understanding of
taxpayers behavior. They span through a wide range of the spectrum of data science going from
data collection and quality control, machine learning applications, analytical reports, impact
evaluation, data-driven decision-making and business intelligence dashboards. More than that, you
will get the chance to have a positive outcome on the development of Rwanda. The data science
team has a central role in the improvement of revenue collection that is much needed to achieve
self-sustainability of the country.

Objective

Under the Strategy and Risk Analysis Department, as the Director of the Data Science Unit, you
will lead the data science initiative and define how RRA creates additional value through the
utilization of its data assets and analytics. The unit will be assigned to medium/long term projects
that support the business objectives of RRA across all departments. The unit is also in charge of
providing technical support to the Data Analytics Team of the Tax Control Unit at the Domestic
Taxes Department.
