However, experienced commercial software developers with a newfound interest in the area are encouraged.

In addition, you will have:

  • A good degree (and potentially a PhD) in a technical subject from a good university, and strong A-level grades including mathematics / statistics
  • Experience with at least one of: applied data science, machine learning, NLP
  • Familiarity with one or more of: Hadoop, MapReduce, Spark / PySpark, TensorFlow, Amazon ML, Azure ML
