Data Scientist- Causality-Focused Fintech

London, South East England

The Client

My client is a market-leader in machine learning and predictive technology. What sets them apart from their competitors is that their predictive machine focuses on causality, and is capable of applying time-series data from a vast range of industries, rather than just one. In turn, they are capable of providing accurate predictions for a variety of clients.

Their clients include tier-1 investment banks, leading hedge funds and one of Europe’s biggest logistics companies – predicting outputs such as oil prices, mortgage rates, energy consumption, and even the spread of disease.

The Role

Data Scientists here are split into two paths, depending on your experience and career aspirations: Commercial where you will be working with clients to tailor the predictive machine to their specific needs; and Research where you will work purely in-house to develop new models.

Both teams provide the opportunity to work with an incredibly smart group of individuals who simply love to solve tough problems.
