Data Scientist

at Philometrics Inc in London

(₤50000 per year)

The position:
Do you like exploring and discovering insights in big data sets? Do you have an interest in machine learning, neural nets, and building statistical models? Are you intrigued by pioneering research in social and news data? Do you want to work in a fast-paced, start-up environment in London?
Philometrics Inc is hiring a data scientist to work on a data science project for our international client. We will be creating statistical and modelling tools for a powerful data science platform they have recently created. We will be working both in pure data analysis as well as designing, prototyping, and creating tools that will be used to derive new insights from social and news data worldwide.

Who we are:
Philometrics Inc is a survey platform and data science consulting company. Our survey platform uses machine learning and AI forecasting to take 1,000 responses and turn them into millions of representative data points.
We also (the primary role of this job posting) do custom data science consulting projects. This work spans from big data analysis to product development.
Our group is a tight-knit collection of academics who prefer a fast-paced, creation-oriented environment.

Who you are:
You are quantitative minded (from physics, maths, CS, experimental psychology, bioinformatics, etc., we don't mind) with an interest in working with large datasets primarily from social and news sources. The nature of a start-up is fast-paced and multi-faceted (the work you do will be changing), thus this must be an environment you want to explore and embrace. Our team will be split between London and San Francisco so you should be open to both individual work and collaboration, as well as making at least one (paid for) trip to California.
