Xcede's Data Science recruitment team are exclusively partnered with an exciting fintech scale-up who recently announced huge Series A funding. Off the back of this they are rapidly growing their tech team. As a very data driven organisation, front and centre of these growth plans are to further expand their existing Data Science team.

The current Data Science team (6 people) work closely with the Engineering team to design and deploy machine learning algorithms directly into the product.

They are looking to hire a Senior Data Scientist who will join the team, but have full responsibility for the data science efforts in a particular part of the business. This role could easily progress to a Lead Data Scientist role within the next 12 months as they further expand the team.

*MSc or PhD in Mathematics, Statistics, Physics, Economics, Computer Science or a similar STEM subject
*Strong knowledge of statistics and machine learning
*Strong Python skills
*Experience working with different product owners and stakeholders
*Experience working in a start-up or scale-up preferred
*Good commercial mindset
