Data Scientist – NLP Specialist
Up to £85k
London (Hybrid – 2 days in the office)
Are you a Data Scientist who's also a bit of a whizz when it comes to Natural Language Processing?
This is a genuinely awesome opportunity to join a very successful SaaS start-up, become their NLP subject matter expert, and lead the charge in building a brand-new product that leverages NLP. 👌
This company has been going for several years now and they're flying. They operate in a relatively untapped market and have quickly become a market leader. With so much uncertainty in the tech world right now, you will be pleased to hear that their revenue has doubled in the past 10 months from £1m to £2m and if that isn't enough, they've also just received £5m in funding. Whilst no guarantees can be made, job security shouldn't be too much of a cause for concern here.
Another huge plus is that Data Science isn't an afterthought, in fact, all current and future products are DS-led, and they already have 40-50 models in production which are having a direct impact on the end users.
Strong NLP experience is ESSENTIAL here as it's not a skill set that exists amongst the current DS team. For this product to be a success they need someone who can really take the reins and drive things forward. This is a pivotal role, so if you've only had exposure to NLP projects but have never been involved in building an NLP product from scratch then it probably isn't the right role for you.
Experience with Hugging Face, BERT, vectorisation & text generation are things that would make you ideal for this role.
The company is London based and they're ideally looking for this person to visit the office a couple of times a week.
If you're after a long-term project that offers autonomy and the opportunity to make a tangible impact by bringing a new product to market, get in touch with Jamie Forgan and let's chat further
