Xcede's Data Science recruitment team are working with a very exciting software-as-a-service "scale-up" who are growing out their existing Data Science team, and looking to hire a Head of Data Science to lead the team.

The business have been around for 4 years and have already established themselves as leaders in a logistics space that is ripe for data science. They have grown the business to over 100 people in that time, and have an existing Data Science and Machine Learning team of 7.

The Head of Data Science will lead this data science team and remain hands on where needed. There is a huge list of very interesting, cutting edge projects that need tackling - some optimising and making incremental changes to existing algorithms on the platform, others that need working on from inception through to production. A lot of the projects are centred around optimisation or operations research, so a background in this space would be preferred.

Requirements:
*MSc or PhD in a STEM field
*Optimisation/optimization/operations research background preferred
*Good Python skills
*Experience mentoring or leading a small data science team
*Solid statistics and machine learning knowledge
