Lead Data Scientist

Posted 25 February by Harnham Easy Apply Ended

Head of Data Science


£75,000 - £85,000 + Benefits


The Harnham Data Science team are currently working with a London-based start-up in the pricing space who have developed a brand new product for the travel, leisure and commerce sectors. There are 25 people in the company split across the UK and US, and considerable growth plans for 2018 and 2019. A key (and urgent) hire at the moment is the Head of Data Science position in London, to be quickly followed by x2 Data Scientists and a Data Engineer. There is a Data Scientist in place at the moment and so the team will be up to 5 by early 2018.

The plan for the first year will be to continue work on the company's main product (demand forecasting/pricing algorithm), building on current work with existing clients, and bringing the product to new clients. It will also be your job to look at new and innovative ways to improve the core algorithm behind the company's main product, and ways in which the product can be effectively commercialised within new markets.

Despite being successful in its early stages there are many new and exciting applications for this product which the company want to take advantage of in the coming years - you will have considerable influence in the Data Science road-map driving their main revenue stream.


As the Lead Data Scientist you will be:

  • Building a small and high-impact team of data scientists
  • Utilising new techniques (machine learning / deep learning) to optimise the core product
  • Designing the data science road-map
  • Working alongside a senior leadership team from the likes of Google, MIT and NASA


To be considered for this position you must have the following:

  • Experience of leading teams of Data Scientists/Analysts
  • Proven experience of delivering high-impact and value-driven commercial projects
  • Masters degree qualification in a quantitative degree (e.g Physics, Maths, Statistics, Computer Science etc.)
