Senior Data Scientist

London, England, United Kingdom · Research


Signal has created a platform for analysing text and discovering market intelligence. Our large-scale text analytics system (currently processing more than 2 million documents a day in real-time) unlocks knowledge and insights from unstructured textual data using diverse text analytics and machine learning components. For instance, we apply near de-duplication methods to group similar articles from different publications or entity disambiguation so that we can identify if, for example, a mention of “Iceland” refers to the retail company or the country. Our media monitoring product, built on top of our technology, is enabling organisations to solve real-time complex information challenges (e.g. “All the news related to IPOs of European technology companies”).

We work closely with world-leading academics in Information Retrieval and Machine Learning via academic collaborations and our visiting research program that have resulted in several publications and events. We are looking for researchers with a strong track record (e.g., publications, research grants, PC memberships, …), as well as programming skills in order to implement their ideas into a production large-scale machine learning system to continue innovating our technology platform and products. The selected candidate will work in our Data Science team, alongside other data scientists, data engineers and developers.

Main Responsibilities

The ideal candidate will have a strong data science background with a PhD in a related field (e.g., Machine Learning, Artificial Intelligence, Natural Language Processing, Information Retrieval,...). The candidate should also be a competent developer with experience using ML libraries and frameworks with large datasets.

We are looking for someone who can understand our clients challenges, propose methods to solve problems, experiment with different alternatives to address it and implement a solution that could be deployed in production. Team work and learning are two of the pillars at Signal and for this reason, we are looking for individuals who are open-minded, inquisitive and have the desire to learn new skills from everyone in the company.
