Xcede's Data Science recruitment team are working with a verification and security start-up who are looking to hire their first Data Scientist in a greenfield project. The company's product has been very well received, and having just gone through Series A funding, the next focus is to grow their Data team.

They are hiring a Data Engineer and a Data Scientist in parallel. The Data Scientist will be responsible for tapping into the vast data sets that they have available (internal and external) to help identify useful Data Science/machine learning projects for the whole business, their clients and the product itself.

They are looking to hire an experienced Data Scientist who will thrive in a start-up environment and will be excited by a quick career path to a "Head of Data" role within 12-18 months.

Requirements:
*PhD or MSc in Statistics, Machine Learning, Computer Science or a similar field
*Ability to draw insights and drive decisions around how to add value to a business's core product
*Experience working closely with data engineers to support with data warehousing and data pipelines
*Experience or passion for working in a start-up environment, with a self-starter attitude
*Good Python and/or R skills
*Experience managing or mentoring other Data Scientists, or experience setting out a data science roadmap for a business would be a bonus
