Our Business Intelligence team is searching for a data-driven expert to improve and transform existing processes and initiate new machine learning projects, to solve an array of problems from conception to execution.

What you’ll do:

  • Have the big picture in mind to optimize the full pipeline from input data preparation to fine tuning of algorithms in production.

  • Excellent knowledge in at least one of Python, R or a similar analysis tool.
  • To speak fluent English (our company language).
