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. There is a separate Engineering and BI team, which enables the Data Science team to work on cutting edge machine learning projects from inception through to putting algorithms into production.
This is a rare opportunity for Data Scientists to work on a wide variety "near-greenfield" projects, including some genuine reinforcement learning, deep learning, image processing and NLP (natural language processing) projects.
*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
