Using AI and Machine Learning to unlock market intelligence

Role overview

We use AI and Machine Learning to our advantage to unlock market intelligence πŸ“‘ and insight from unstructured (textual) data. We enable organisations to explain complex information πŸ€” data challenges thus providing them with an advantage over other potential competitors.

As a core member of the team and growth of the platform you will be expected to help improve and develop new products. As we look to improve automation and add new features. ✨✨

🐍Python is our preferred language, but if you're skilled in other 'data science' languages like R that's ok too! πŸ‘Œ And practical usage of machine learning frameworks / libraries like TensorFlow and Scikit-Learn goes a very long way. πŸ“šπŸ€²

πŸ€“We have so much data, come and play with it! πŸ€“

What we do

Signal has created a platform for analysing text and discovering market intelligence πŸ“‘. 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 β€œIceland” refers to the retail company or the country. πŸ‘¨β€πŸ’»πŸ‘©β€πŸ’»Our media monitoring product, built on top of our technology, is enabling organisations to solve real-time complex information challenges (e.g. β€œAll 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

Propose, design and implement data science components to improve our products. This ranges from reviewing the literature to the implementation and comparison of state of the art modes and also the proposal of novel models πŸ’»

Work closely with developers and engineers to implement, scale and deploy new components to be part of our products πŸ‘Š.

Supervising and coordinate visiting researchers (usually PhD students) and MSc students doing their master project at Signal.

Being involved and advise other teams about how data science can be used to address different challenges πŸ‘¨β€πŸ‘¨β€πŸ‘§β€πŸ‘§.

Represent Signal in academic or industrial conferences and other events, to promote our research and data science brand πŸ™.

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.
