How will you help

in creating value with Data & AI

At GoDataDriven, we build strong data & AI practices to deliver value to our clients and their customers. In the past, our team of data professionals has predicted the daily demand for millions of loaves of bread, built advanced energy-saving algorithms to nationwide scale, and set up data innovation labs at large multinational corporations. We have already enjoyed great success in making top companies AI-driven — just think of what more we can achieve when YOU join our team!

As senior data scientist, you are responsible for the creation of business value using data & AI. You are capable to rapidly learn about the domain of our customers and apply your experience with getting data-driven applications into production; not only by yourself but also by coaching and mentoring other people in your team.

What you will do

To make data intensive-applications work effectively and securely.

You start by assessing the value-driven use cases at the client and a good sense of what success looks like. Then you apply your skills in mathematics, statistics, machine learning and programming to analyze and model data. You work mostly with notebooks in Python and are also able to translate your notebooks into a working prototype. Together with a machine learning engineer or data engineer, you help to get the model into production and assess the value it creates. If required, you also set up a good way of working for your team, with a proper dev-ops for AI approach.

When you’re working on-site with a client, you eventually come across something really difficult to solve. Luckily, every few weeks everyone from GDD comes to our office to work remotely on their projects and you have the opportunity to discuss and even solve your problems with the help of the hive mind of GDD. And if that would take too long, everybody at GDD is just a quick message away and ready to help you at any time.

What to expect

The GoDataDriven Way

GoDataDriven, as a Xebia Group company, operate on three distinct principles: Authority, Focus and Values. These principles guide every decision made by both management and staff. Authority means becoming the best in our field, individually and as a company. It’s an audacious goal that keeps us striving and fighting. We only hire people who have achieved authority, not for growth, open positions, size or value.

Respect & self-empowerment

At GoDataDriven, we treat each other with respect, cooperation, and a view towards creating an enthusiastic, self-empowered, dynamic working community. Our culture exudes creativity and ambition, and our colleagues share an insatiable thirst for knowledge. We’re especially proud of our generous training budget and our “Hack-What-You-Want” Fridays.

Like-minded colleagues

At GoDataDriven, you’ll find like-minded colleagues at the forefront of their fields with the courage to veer from the beaten path; they are the people who put organizations into motion.
