Data Scientist - Innovative Applications of Causal AI

Job description


We are looking for a motivated and high-achieving Data Scientist based in London to join the team on our vision to optimise every business on the planet. This is a full-time placement with significant opportunities for personal development.

We offer an intellectually stimulating environment, work within an interdisciplinary team and an inclusive culture. We are a high-calibre, mission-driven team building a technology that improves our world.

Roles and Responsibilities

This is an exciting role for an intelligent, forward thinking, creative person with a strong technical background and desire to apply their skills in a stimulating commercial environment. Your work will include:
• Researching and developing novel use-cases for the causaLens technology
• Generating new ideas for the application of causal AI throughout a range of industries
• Communicating these ideas with the community through blogs & social media
• Building models to prove the value of our technology and facilitate its adoption
• Inspiring new customers about the importance of causal AI in business applications

    The Company

    causaLens is pioneering Causal AI, a new category of intelligent machines that understand cause and effect - a major step towards true AI. Its enterprise platform is used to transform leading businesses in Finance, IoT, Energy, Telecommunications and others.

    Current machine learning approaches, including AutoML solutions, have severe limitations when applied to real world business problems and fail to unlock the true potential of AI for the enterprise. For instance, in the case of predictions, they severely overfit and do not adapt when the environment changes. causaLens’ Causal AI Platform goes beyond predictions, providing transparent causal insights and suggesting actions that directly improve business KPIs.

    causaLens is run by scientists and engineers, the majority holding a PhD in a quantitative field. Contact us on or follow us on LinkedIn and Twitter.

    We are committed to addressing the diversity problem in the tech industry, and that starts with making sure we have a team where everyone feels at home and can contribute as a peer.
