A London-based SaaS start-up who have built a web-based product which provides 'one click Data Analysis' are looking for a Senior Data Scientist to lead their fast-expanding Data Science team.

As Senior Data Scientist, you'll be working on an innovative big data analytics platform which provides businesses with data-driven analytics and forecasting using Machine Learning algorithms. Aimed at providing the consumer with predictive analytics and insights from Big Data at the click of a button, you will be joining a company which has already received substantial attention and funding from businesses looking to streamline their workflow.

You'll be joining a small team at a pivotal stage in the company's growth, as the product is currently live and attracting huge amounts of interest. As a Senior Data Scientist in an emerging start-up, no two days will be the same, however your primary goal will be to develop their core product in Scala and enhance it through prototyping data-driven features. You will also be heavily involved in critical research, and the implementation of advanced Machine Learning algorithms.

A Senior Data Scientist will enjoy the autonomy of taking ownership of a project with minimal supervision, and will have the benefit of building a team of gifted Scientists as the company progresses.

Skills required:

* Experience in Machine Learning
* Functional Programming - Scala (in particular Scala Machine Learning libraries)
