Job Description

Sumner & Scott are looking for Deep Learning Scientists to join our clients team that develops and implements the algorithmic core of a series of exciting new projects.

As a Scientist you will work in a small and dynamic team, and develop cutting edge machine learning methods for future products. We are currently hiring Deep Learning scientists across following themes:

1. Deep Reinforcement Learning and Unsupervised Learning / Generative models.
2. Natural Language Processing (NLP).
3. Computer Vision.
4. Recurrent Neural Networks, Sequence Learning and Sequence Analysis (and NLG).

The success in this role requires the candidate to:

1) Employ the best of Deep Learning research for solving business problems; disrupting the current practice in insurance.
2) Build and refine Deep Learning algorithms that can find “useful” patterns in large multi-modal data (particularly, images, text, conversations, and transactional data).
3) Provide the business with new product ideas, as well as data-driven apps, insights and strategies.
4) Participate in, lead, and create cross-functional projects.
5) Communicate (both oral and written) with colleagues and stakeholders (both internal and external).


1) Completion of one significant project (equivalent of a PhD research project, and/or a viable commercial product) in one or more of the above themes.
2) Scientific expertise, strong track record, and real-world experience in Deep Learning, especially with hands-on experience in hyper-parameter tuning and deep construction / distribution (e.g., architecture design in DNN/CNN/RNN, parameter initialization, activation, normalization, and optimisation).
3) Strong background in machine learning and statistical modeling (e.g., classification, regression, and clustering).
4) Expertise in programming (e.g., Python and C++) and computing technologies (high-performance computing, e.g., CUDA).
5) Ability to use existing machine/deep learning libraries (e.g., TensorFlow, Torch, Theano, Caffe, and scikit-learn).
6) Review, direct, guide, inspire the research of more junior scientists in the team (for senior candidates).
