For our offices in Amsterdam and Rotterdam, we are looking for a data scientist who knows exactly how to handle Algorithms, Big Data, Machine Learning and Predictive Targeting.

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 of for instance buyer intention.
  • Forecasting of for instance supply and demand over time.
  • Segmenting of for instance target groups based on buyer behaviour.
  • Recommending of 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.
