    Data Scientist

    For our Data Science team, we are looking for a Data Scientist who knows exactly how to handle Algorithms, Big Data, Machine Learning and build predictive models.

    This vacancy is open for relocation to the Netherlands. Read all about our relocation process here.

    As a data scientist, you know how to structure and clean giant datasets meticulously, in order to apply your algorithms on them. You recognise patterns in data that no-one else would and this enables you to make our campaigns better and smarter. From the output of a calculated dataset, you can start with the analysis for a client and eventually you are able to communicate your advice in a clear fashion to your team and your client.

    You will be working on new concepts and innovations regarding:

    • Predicting customer propensity.
    • Forecasting supply and demand.
    • Segmenting customer groups based on behavioural data.
    • Recommending products and/or content.

    You will work in a vibrant environment with clever minds who work for a variety of large global clients. Yes, we are eager to hire the most talented experts in the game but we are also looking for a perfect Dept-fit. Someone who is eager to learn, inspires, strives towards a better world, takes the stage, a futurist at heart, and someone who will toast to a successful week with us.
