Senior Data Scientist

As a senior data scientist you are capable of rapidly learning about the domain of our customers, building models and prototypes and coaching data scientists in their way of working.


Senior Data Scientist

We are looking for senior data scientists who feel at home at the intersection between science, mathematics, machine learning, business, and coaching. You have experience in building value from data through ML and software.

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 enjoy great success in making top companies AI-driven — just think of what more we can achieve when YOU join our team!

As a senior data scientist you are responsible for the creation of business value using data & AI. You are capable of rapidly learning about the domain of our customers and applying 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 to get a good sense of what success looks like. You then 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 efforts 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 may come across something that is really difficult to solve. Luckily, every few weeks everyone from GDD comes to our office to work remotely on their projects where you have the opportunity to discuss and even solve your problems with the help of the hive mind of GDD. If that's too long to wait, everybody at GDD is just a quick message away and ready to help at any time.

Why this role

is the dream job for you

  • if you like to tell a story with data and the latest AI technology.
  • if you want to have an impact on the bottom line of organisations.
  • if you like working for different clients and enjoy the excitement of regularly getting to learn new environments and know new people.

is not something you want

  • if you have less than 2 years of working experience in a similar role.
  • if you lack a working knowledge of the Dutch language.
  • if you are not excited by working in teams and coaching people in their role as data scientist or analyst.

If that sounds like you, let's talk.
