Data Science Traineeship

Become a data scientist in one year

Work hard, play hard! In one year you’ll be trained as data scientist in our data science traineeship.

 

You’ll work on challenging projects together with the best colleagues. You’ll get the freedom and responsibility to reach your full potential!

Get ready to accelerate

In this traineeship you’re trained weekly by the top pro’s in the business. You’ll learn how to use algorithms to create true business value. At the same time you start working for our A-brand clients to put your new skills to practice, while being coached by senior consultants. Your team lead will guide you on a personal level to ensure an effective and efficient traineeship. You’ll get lots of freedom and you’re encouraged to specialize in your interest and talent. Your learning curve will go through the roof!

The traineeship is built on three pillars that form the basis of your career as data scientist:

 

  • Hard skills: Coding in Python and SQL, working in the cloud with Tensorflow
  • Machine learning: (un)supervised learning, time series analysis and reinforcement learning
  • Soft skills: time planning, cooperating in teams and presenting

 

Joris-Jan van de Loo data scientist and lead of the traineeship: “These days writing an algorithm is no longer a challenge. It’s about which model  gives the best results in which situation. A true data science super star uses his or her extensive knowledge of tools and models to come up with creative solutions that nobody has thought of before.”

What’s in it for you?

We believe working should be fun. Of course we’ll take care of a good salary and nice conditions, but there’s more! Fun and ambitious colleagues, the best Friday drinks, legendary parties and trips like the annual skiing trip. We have the dynamics and structure of a startup. No formal stuff, everybody’s part of the result. We’re growing fast and you’ll grow with us. You work on digital top level for (inter)national top brands like Gall & Gall, KLM and Douwe Egberts. If you’re willing to seize the right opportunities, you will grow fast on a professional as well as personal level. You’ll find us on the fourth floor of B.Amsterdam. This is the biggest startup hub in Europe where creatives, corporates and startups work closely together. The building has a restaurant (although we have our own awesome lunch), a gym (we can be quite sporty sometimes) and an amazing roof terrace where you’ll find us when the weather’s nice.

Sounds like you?
