You align client business strategy, KPIs to impact, and data science use cases. You will propose new problem-solving solutions and methodologies; data modelling, analyses & interpretation. You apply the latest algorithms and techniques like deep learning and other machine learning techniques to create client value through insight generation and decision support –then turn these into action (eg. build a recommender system, determine customer segments through clustering, analyze a large text corpus to learn about the writers sentiment, predict the next best action).

You facilitate workshops/interviews to bridge the gap between data analytics and business outcomes. You provide advice to clients by translating analytical solutions into recommendations. You help achieve strategic goals and impact business results.

  • 5+ years of hands-on experience in analyzing data through statistical modelling and machine learning to tackle business questions.

  • Fluent and effective communication in Dutch and English is required.

  • You know your way around statistical software packages (R, SAS, SPSS, etc.), relevant programming languages (SQL, Python, R, C, VBA, etc.), machine learning techniques (Neural Networks, Random Forest, etc.), machine learning solutions (Google Tensorflow, IBM Watson, etc.) and visualization (Tableau, Qlik, D3, etc.).
