Xcede's Data Science team are working with one of the UK's most exciting hyper-growth start-ups who have grown from 10 to nearly 300 in the space of just a few years. They have built an incredible team across the business with ex-Google, Facebook, Spotify, Schibsted, Expedia, etc. They recently secured a huge Series B funding of £65 million, and their customer base is growing exponentially - nearly 25 million unique website visitors each month and 2 million app downloads… and growing!

They have an existing Data Science team of 8 people, and are now looking for an experienced Senior Data Scientist who can take ownership of projects and mentor more junior members of the team.

The data sets available to the team are fantastic in terms of size, variety (think text, images, videos), and accessibility - there is plenty for the team to get their teeth into.

Requirements:
*MSc or PhD in Statistics, Mathematics, Computer Science or similar field
*2/3+ years' commercial experience as a Data Scientist
*Good programming skills (Python)
*Good machine learning background
*Experience with reinforcement learning, deep learning, Natural Language Processing (NLP), recommender systems, search or computer vision will be an advantage
*Experience working in start-up or scale-up would be an advantage
