Xcede's Data Science recruitment team are working with one of the world's largest insurance and reinsurance companies who built a new Data Science team last year. Having hired 8 Data Scientists, they are now looking to add an experienced, Senior Data Scientist to the team who can help mentor and manage more junior members of the team.

The Data Science projects are still at an early stage, so there are a lot of "low hanging fruit", with the chance to have a multi-million pound impact. The team is being led by a fantastic Head of Data Science, and has great support from C-level. Although the team is a central team to the FTSE 100 organisation, they are keen to drive a "start-up mentality" for the Data Science unit.

The Senior Data Scientist will be working on a wide range of projects including fraud detection, retention, NLP, geospatial work, pricing, portfolio management, litigation strategies, and several others.

Requirements:
*Commercial experience as a Data Scientist
*MSc or PhD in Statistics, Machine Learning, Mathematics, or a similar scientific field
*Machine Learning experience
*Open-source programming skills (Python, R)
*Strong communication and presentation skills
