Senior Data Scientist/Lead Data Scientist | Credit Risk & Fraud | London | Exciting FinTech

I am working with an exciting FinTech that are revolutionising credit scoring and enabling thin-file customers the opportunity to get credit. This in turn enables lenders to lend more, so it’s a win-win all round! The way in which the company does this is by using alternative data (e.g. social media data) to create a broader and in-depth file to base the lending decision on.

The FinTech see the Data Science team as an integral part of their business and the Senior/Lead Data Scientist has the opportunity to drive the business forward by liaising with existing/potential clients and by also using sophisticated modelling techniques/machine learning to develop innovative scoring products for their international client base.

Some of the desired experience includes:

• Machine learning/deep machine learning experience
• Credit risk experience in a bank, lender, credit card company or credit scoring company
• Unsecured credit risk modelling experience
• Credit risk modelling experience using alternative data
• Product orientated
• Good working knowledge of Python and/or R
• Ability to transform large, complex datasets into pragmatic, actionable insights
• Also the ability to work with small datasets
