Your partner in unleashing the power of location data

Vacancy: Data Scientist (GEO)

Your responsibilities

This is what you will do as a Data Scientist Location Intelligence

To expand our team, we are looking for a Data Scientist who likes to sink his or her teeth into complex problems. Your job duties prove that not only the title (because say it … ) but also the content of your job is cool:

  • You translate business needs into data requirements, and you can communicate them clearly.
  • You predict the future based on lessons from the past. Because the data always has the last word.
  • You estimate the potential of use cases through initial exploratory screening. In doing so, you put on both skeptical and opportunistic glasses.
  • You search your way through disparate data sources, clean up data where necessary, distill information from data sources using AI, and bring it all together for further modeling.
  • You will develop predictive models as building blocks for concrete applications. In doing so, you will use your statistical knowledge and machine learning methods.

“Every new idea deserves due consideration.”

That’s why we need you

That is why you are our Data Scientist of choice

Because you have a lot going for you. We are looking for a Data Scientist who knows his or her craft inside out, but also fits within our open and innovative culture:

  • You have a master’s degree in IT, engineering, applied sciences or you are equivalent through experience.
  • As a chameleon, you speak the language of business and IT experts as well as your fellow Data Scientists. You communicate fluently with different profiles.
  • You are familiar with feature engineering, model fitting and model evaluation.
  • Independently develop prototypes and demonstrate their value? You can do that like no other. Your strong statistical knowledge and experience with machine learning algorithms will help.
  • You have hands-on experience with SQL, R and/or Python. This is how you uncover new insights each time.
  • You have already worked with data science libraries (such as TensorFlow, Torch and Keras) and Big Data technologies (such as Hadoop or Spark).
  • You are always thinking out of the box, unless you are building classifiers.
  • New developments you follow closely, and you share them with your colleagues. You know all the trends!
  • You have an edge over other candidates if you have knowledge or experience with:
    • Big data platforms such as Azure, Google Cloud Platform or AWS
    • Data modeling and ETL tools
    • The application of machine learning algorithms in a geo context
    • BI tools, such as Qlik, PowerBi or Cognos.

This is what you get from us

What goes around comes around! That’s why we offer you:

  • Growth opportunities. Take a training course through our Geo Academy or prefer external training?
  • Intrapreneurship. Or simply: the opportunity to help build our company. Geo Solutions is brimming with ambition!

  • Work hard, play hard. You will get a healthy dose of challenges on the one hand, and the necessary dose of fun at work on the other. And that with cool colleagues. Never a dull moment.
  • And you can recharge perfectly during your 28 vacation days!
  • State of the art technologies. You not only develop them, you work with them. So that you can always give your best.
  • A competitive salary package: gross salary supplemented by a company car and fuel card, hospitalization insurance, pension savings plan and meal allowance. You’ll find more about that in your full-time, permanent, open-ended contract.
