Senior Data Scientist & ML Engineer
Location: UK 


Deeper Insights are a full-stack AI consultancy with a focus on business intelligence and analytics.
Our data experts and our cutting edge Skim Engine platform enable clients to utilise data from unstructured and external sources. It’s our mission to empower business leaders to do more with data and we design and build custom AI solutions that enable that. Such as automated back-office processes, augmented analytics, predictive analytics, and alternative dataset creation.

We work with a range of clients from Healthcare to Financial Services both scale-up and enterprise. We also offer our time on pro-bono projects that support the 3rd sector. We're an award-winning practice, recognised for both our consulting services and the work we've done in the 3rd sector.

We are a distributed team across UK and Portugal and practice a Remote First way of working, supported by strong agile and X-teams methodologies.

We're looking for someone to join the company who has a unique set of skills and experience as noted in the Requirements section below. But most importantly we hire conscientious computer and data scientists, who like to push the boundaries of whats possible. Working with other academics, business leaders and entrepreneurs to harness the power of Artificial Intelligence to improve the way we work and live.

We're planning a lot of continued growth in 2021 as well as a major product release, and so this will be a very exciting time to join our growing company. 

Job Role:

Your work will be varied and challenging. You will be working on delivering client projects, including leading a project team and also contributing to our Open Source and Insights products.

You will be required to meet face-to-face (eventually, we're all still remote!) with clients, and prepare proposals for AI solutions using both our own proprietary solutions as well as implementing some of the latest breakthroughs from academia. 

As a company, we practice X-Team thinking and operate a flat hierarchy, and therefore you will be required to participate in decisions on the companies direction and areas of research and development. We also run Sprint teams (yes, even in Data Science), so you'd be expected to have good knowledge of Agile.

Day to day you will be working closely with both Lead Data Scientist and the CEO on directing project resources, working on code, designing new algorithms, training models, teaching/mentoring Junior Data Scientists, and generally doing whatever it takes to keep the business succeeding. We're not looking for plodders, but people that want to see the difference their work can make to both us and our clients.

You need to be a self-starter as you'll work from home a lot. We also especially like self-learners and sharing knowledge.
