Senior Data Scientist

Job description

As our senior Data Scientist, your talent with data will help us to detect fraudsters and catch criminals. You will build great detection and recognition modelling within a kickass data team with computer vision elements, machine learning practices and millions of data points. Combine your skills with our business and create the fraud detection system of the future.

Where will you be involved?

We have a KYC solution (know your customer) which we want to automate as much as possible. We do a lot with Object Recognition and computer vision techniques to do automated checks on personal identity verifications (like passports) and pictures of people. That of course is a great data science challenge. Because what are the data points that tell us the most? With machine learning, how can we train our models best? What models should we use?

As you can read we need your knowledge added to our computer vision team to make sense of our data.
