Data Scientist

Beating complex data challenges

As Data Scientist at Newcraft you’ll guide leading brands in becoming fully data-driven.


You leverage your extensive knowledge and experience in data science to create impact and help our clients grow. You’re not just responsible for guiding complex projects at our clients, but you also act as a thought leader on data science. Both for our clients and your colleagues.

Team Data Science

Newcraft Data Science helps clients in defining and developing the right data solutions. We’re actively involved in helping our clients develop their data maturity and make data a more effective asset within their organisation.


We do this by identifying their current level of maturity and what solution would fit best. That could be a redesign of their data framework, thorough data analyses to identify opportunities, or develop more advanced machine learning based models.


The team consists of highly skilled people that keep an eye on the long-term vision and understand what clients need to create new opportunities. We cooperate closely with digital specialists and act as a sparring partner at top level. The team enjoys working in a creative atmosphere and encourages experimentation and innovation.

Who you are

You’re a clear communicator and love to make complex matters easy to understand. You’re always one step ahead in digital and data developments; you’re never done learning and you love sharing your knowledge. If you like taking initiative and are self-steering, you’ll get plenty of freedom and responsibility. 


  • A Master’s Degree in Econometrics, Technical business administration, Physics, Mathematics or any other relevant studies
  • At least five years of experience as a data scientist, preferably in a commercial and/or consulting environment
  • You have a working knowledge of programming in Python and in a SQL-like language. Obviously, you understand the importance and use of a tool like Excel as well
  • You have experience in developing machine learning solutions and understand the different aspects, such as data cleaning/preparation, feature engineering, model selection and optimization, and model evaluation
  • You have an understanding of the state-of-the-art machine learning algorithms, such as (logistic) regression, random forest,  xgboost, neural networks, etc.
  • Experience in working in a cloud environment such as Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud or AWS is a plus
  • You know how to communicate your message and are able to present your results in an understandable manner
  • An entrepreneurial mind set. You know how to spot commercial opportunities and believe pragmatism is more important than the perfect analysis

What’s in it for you?

Working on exciting and challenging projects with the dynamics and structure of a small organization. That’s working at NEWCRAFT. You’ll get the freedom and responsibility to make your own decisions. But you don’t have to do this alone. There’s a team of specialists you can rely on. Together we can make a difference. Fun is part of the job, we love what we do, the clients we work for, and each other.
