AI Search are representing multiple opportunities to join a brand new data science team at an established fin-tech firm in London or New York (hiring equally in both locations).
Building tools to analyse diverse 'alternative data' streams such as satellite imagery (image recognition), written and spoken text (NLP for sentiment analysis) and other emerging data streams, this team will be among the first in its market.
The employer is a well established fin-tech with significant offices in London and New York. The team is being built out across both locations and there is remit to hire a number of people in each. We are targeting recent graduates, experienced data scientists and team leads in both locations to build out structured teams. These teams will be completely new and tackling emerging 'alternative data' is a greenfield project for the firm (very few financial firms at all are looking at this yet and any that are will be taking a very different approach).
The environment at the firm is highly technical, quantitative and commercial, but also very collegial, and all hires will be expected to contribute ideas and approaches as well as receive direction.
The pay is strong in relation to fin-tech peers and there is an equity options plan that all employees are involved in.
Candidates should have a strong academic background in Computer Science or Mathematics (inc related fields) and those that are stronger on the Mathematics side must be comfortable coding (in Python, C/C++ or Java; the team use a mix of technologies) and those from a Comp Sci academic background should be comfortable with mathematical and statistical concepts. In addition, the team will be awarded a good deal of autonomy to apply ML methods to these alternative data sets to see if they can improve upon the more traditional statistical approaches. Familiarity with Machine Learning methodologies and commercial or academic experience of applying them to real-world data sets would be valuable.
The firm offers a fast and streamlined interview process and are very keen to make these hires ASAP.
