Project Description


Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning (AI & ML) continues to revolutionise the financial services industry.
DXC-Luxoft's Banking and Capital Markets and Insurance team is investing in these technologies, and is actively building up a new AI, ML and Analytics Practice across a number of regions.
In particular, we are looking to hire Data Scientists with experience with Financial Services and/or Fraud backgrounds, into our European practices. We are building out a large AI-based anti-fraud platform, which is provided to clients on a SaaS platform. We are expanding due to the success of the product, and the size of the client pipeline.
You will be conducting analysis, design and development of AI and Machine Learning models, and POCs, and assisting to deploy these into Production. You will be working with leading financial services organizations in the region, and collaborating with other teams in our practice.
We are interested in hearing from individuals with a strong Data Science, and AI & ML background. A background in financial services would be advantageous, as would experience in model deployment.

    ◆ Identify and analyse data sources, whether internally or for clients, and perform feature engineering for integration into models
    ◆ Work with Development and DevOps teams where necessary, to deploy models on ML platforms into Production, and successfully realise client goals
    You will assist the practice in:
    ◆ Developing practice thought leadership materials, participating in pre-sales work and client work as necessary
    ◆ Helping to structure work, planning new analyses, translating business questions into analytical projects
    ◆ You will collaborate with business and technology partners to grow and develop the data science practice
