Your job will entail

As a data scientist you will work on building systems that add intelligence to our products and services. This enables our customers to gain advanced insights into their (potential) clients or relations. You will help retrieve valuable information from unstructured data (for instance text or websites), but also make it possible to link new data sources so we can enrich our data.

An example of a project we have been working on is extracting sentiment from news articles and linking them to companies. This way our customers can quickly see if a certain company has recently had a lot of negative publicity. Another example is automatically adding more relevant labels to companies, this way we can predict that a financial holding is actually a supermarket chain.

Most of our solutions involve machine learning, so it’s crucial that you have a good understanding of common methods and tools in this space. It is also important to understand how to evaluate those methods.
You’ll also have the opportunity to take your ideas all the way from proof-of-concept to production. Especially in the later stages we get help from other teams, but it’s important to have a solid background in software development.

Our team will consist of 4 people (including the team lead and you). Following the Scrum methodology, we will work closely together with our product owner and other teams.
