Xcede’s Data Science team are working with an advertising personalisation company who build products for human-driven analysis of real-world data focusing around the concept of identity as a real individual, rather than a customer. While the business focus is relatively straightforward, the technical aspect is fascinating; products must be powerful enough to handle messy data at enormous scales, but nimble enough to provide an intuitive experience for users with a wide range of analytical capabilities. My client is looking for someone who can help build these products in Senior capacity, and add to an already high quality Engineering unit.
