Xcede's Data Science team are working with one of the UK's favourite entertainment brands who already have an industry leading Data Science team based in central London. They are looking to add a Senior Data Scientist to the team, working under an incredibly talented and inspirational Head of Data Science. The team is currently made up of 15 Data Scientists, with close links to UCL for their MSc and PhD machine learning programmes.

The Senior Data Scientist will work on a broad range of projects - from recommendation engine and personalisation work, through to some incredibly cutting edge deep learning projects on content recommendation.

They use Spark in the team, but happy to take someone from a strong Python background who has been able to "get things done" before, i.e. been able to build or launch a product.

Requirements:
*MSc or PhD in Statistics, Machine Learning, Computer Science, or similar field
*Strong machine learning background in a commercial, production environment
*Strong programming skills (ideally Python)
*Deep learning experience would be an advantage
*Good software engineering skills
