QuBit has a brand new platform that aims to personalize web sites based on predictive algorithms. Our tools help companies serve up content to website-users, targeted according to their behaviour. We're looking for a Senior Data Scientist to help us develop those predictive algorithms, and conduct cutting-edge research into consumer behaviour on the web.

This is an opportunity to conduct real R&D into human behaviour using our enormous databases. QuBit's data collection tools are storing more than 1 billion data points every day. That's plenty of raw data for your Bayesian modeling, MCMC and Particle Filters.

About QuBit

Founded in 2010 by a team from Google's London and New York offices, QuBit work with some of the biggest names in Online. Our engineers have built a brand new platform that combines a number of technologies - analytics, automation, personalisation and more - into a simple, easy-to-use product.

We're not the only ones excited about our new approach to solving the problems of modern e-Commerce. We've just raised $7.5 million in Series A funding from one of the UK's biggest venture capitalists. Come and join the growing team as we embark on the brightest chapter in QuBit's history.

Although we've now grown to more than 50 people, we're keen on keeping our culture as relaxed and open as when there were only 5 of us. Our offices have table football, a special coffee machine and plenty of perks. More importantly we're a focused and determined team preparing to double in size during 2013.
