Senior Data Scientist - Learning

at memrise in London

(₤65000 - ₤75000 per year)

Memrise gives people learning superpowers. We aim to help anyone achieve confident, real-world language skills in just a few short months. Our product is innovative and fun, and it delivers the goods.

Last year, we won the "App of the Year 2017" at the Google Play Awards. With near zero marketing spend we’ve grown organically to tens of millions of users, and we’re already profitable with a team of well over 50 (30+ nationalities).

We’re now looking to build out our team to take Memrise to the next level. The goal in the coming years is to become the dominant product and pre-eminent brand in global language learning.

REQUIREMENTS
We are looking for a Senior Data Scientist (Salary £65,000 - £75,000) to drive engagement and learning efficacy through continuous iteration on Memrise’s learning algorithm. Ideally you will have some or all of the following:

Experience developing machine-learning algorithms
Deep statistical knowledge
Experience working with large datasets
Commercial experience as a data scientist or postgraduate research experience
Ability and willingness to independently work on challenging problems without given solutions
A methodological, empirical approach
Excellent communication skills
Bonus points for an interest in languages and learning
If you aren’t completely confident that you fit our exact criteria, please get in touch immediately. Humility is a wonderful thing and we’re not interested in hiring ‘rockstars’ or ‘ninjas’. And we're at least as interested in character as in talent.

BENEFITS
Healthcare and pension, with a number of discounts and cashback on important stuff like Gym membership, opticians and dentists' fees. We also give you budget and time to learn a language in work hours. The office is stocked with a wide ever-changing variety of healthy and unhealthy snacks, tea, coffee and soft drinks and breakfast materials. We have frequent team expeditions, the last one being to being a trip to Iceland for a Polyglot Conference and general exploring! We run a cycle to work scheme and a selection of useful perks and benefits.
