Xcede’s Data Science team are working with one of the UK’s most exciting AI tech start-ups of the last few years. Despite only being founded a few years ago, they were profitable almost straight away and have already grown the company to 100 people. They recently moved to a really cool new office by Old Street roundabout to help continue their expansion.
Last year they secured a large Series A funding, and Q2 2020 has been one of their best periods for new revenue due to an interesting Covid-19 related product they released. As such they have received further investment and are now entering another “growth phase”.
Data Science is at the core of their product and is one of the most important areas of the business. As such they are looking to hire two more Data Scientists into the team (currently 5 Data Scientists) – an NLP focussed Data Scientist who will work with tonnes of text data coming through the app on a daily basis ; and a Senior Data Scientist with a PhD in a STEM subject who will work on building machine learning algorithms, primarily around forecasting, clustering and predictions. There are also some large, long-term projects that the Data Science team work on including building a huge knowledge graph, as well as smaller lengths project such as anomaly detection and machine vision.
Requirements (for the Senior Data Scientist role)
· MSc or PhD in a STEM field
· Commercial NLP experience
· Ideally deep learning knowledge applied to NLP
· Strong Python background
