My client is looking for a Senior Data Scientist to join a growing team. They are in the midst of a revolutionary change so need a creative but experienced candidate to help them move more into the Data Science space.

In this Data Science role you will be expected to use the data you have access to improve profits, understand customer behavior and identify risk. Due to the nature of the role, you will need to be confident in your findings and be able to express these views. As you will need to be able to explain your findings to various areas of the business, to help them understand what you have found out, and tell them how and why they should be doing things differently.

The suitable candidate must have experience of:

- Background using a range of tools and scripting languages particularly R, Python, SQL (other experience with Spark, Scala, Hadoop, Cassandra, etc. is highly beneficial but not required.)
