During your first 18 months in this mixed Junior position, you'll get a rapid learning and hands-on curve working on the broad Analytics domains. You'll build Data Pipelines, set up Data Platforms, do CICD, build ML models, do feature engineering, do visualization exercises and much more. This Junior position is a great opportunity to learn what it takes to do Analytics from end to end.

Your profile

Our job offer is there to reflect a mixed Data Scientist/Engineer position: i.e. one where we’ll be asking you to crunch data with the objective to build machine learning models and to embed them in end-to-end applications to production.

Key responsibilities

As a Data Scientist/Engineer, you aim to work hands-on to deliver data-driven platforms, machine learning models & applications. Every mission we’ll embark on will have concrete deliverables and a deadline. This means that we can guarantee you a variety of engagements across clients & industries: e.g. one month you might be working on a predictive maintenance modelling and, another month, on a churn model for a marketing client.

You’ll be responsible for
(1) platform set-up
(2) data gathering and preparation
(3) research on what type of models to use
(4) the ML modelling itself.
You will work (standalone or in team) with clients (~50% of the time at the client) and have a responsibility for managing project timeline, status meetings and client coaching & training.
