Senior Data Scientist at Cleo AI
London, GB

Cleo is an AI assistant that helps over 750 000 people in the UK and US feel great about their money.

You’ll contribute to a team of 5 data scientists, backed by some incredible engineers and reporting directly to the CEO.

This position will be essential in the expansion of both product and business. We are highly data driven, whether that be understanding natural language, deriving insights from financial data or determining what financial product is best suited to a user. We have interesting problems to solve on an ever-increasing scale.


What you’ll be working on:


  • Building a world-class AI assistant to help users understand and manage their money
  • Actively building and productionising classifiers - no dependencies on engineering teams
  • Building a cutting-edge natural language assistant


About you:


  • Have at least 4 years experience
  • Are confident applying machine learning methods such as regression, classification and unsupervised learning


You may also have:

  • A PhD in which you studied or utilised machine learning
  • Experience writing production-quality code
  • Knowledge of natural language understanding methods

Additionally, you:

  • Are self-motivated, inquisitive and think creatively
  • Are excited to explore the intricate data we have from our customers, and build features that solve their problems.

Our process:

  1. A half hour phone call with one of our senior data scientists to find out more about your experience and why you want to work at Cleo.
  2. A short take-home test.
  3. An onsite interview:
    1. Technical discussion around the take-home test or an interesting piece of previous work.
    2. Meet the CEO/COO


  • The chance to work at one of the fastest growing tech startups anywhere in the world. We recently closed a competitive Series A with Balderton who join a formidable investor base including the founders of Skype, Transferwise, Zoopla, Lovefilm, Climate corporation, SongKick and others.
  • The team is exceptional. You'll get to work with brilliantly bright and dedicated individuals every day.
  • Our mission is unique. We want to radically improve everyone’s relationship with money. We're not maximising the time consumers spend in a feed, getting fast food delivered, or building an incrementally better bank. We're changing an industry in a visceral way, which you get to see every day from our customers’ feedback
