About the job
We are looking for a data scientist that will help us build out our data analytics team. Do you like analysing data? Are you curious about applying data science to business cases? Do you have an interest in helping other people understand data and data science? Then now is a good time to apply for this position.
What you’ll do
At Craftzing Data, you will be the person that helps our clients’ data strategies come to life. Your main task will be:
exploring our clients’ data;
creating insights with scientific analyses that will inform their decision-making;
coming up with creative ideas that will shape their data strategy and hopefully also their organisation.
When it comes down to the action, you will be the one developing the different analyses. We will support you in translating your insights to the clients’ business, but we will encourage you to learn and grow in this area. In the long-term, we would love to see you grow into that data scientist that can do both analysis and strategy for a client, having you take full control of your impact on an organisation.
On top of that, you will be working directly with our managing partner (dr. Maarten Vanhoof) to develop ways in which you can share your skills with other data scientists in our company and, perhaps, beyond. Overall, we will strive to offer you a diversity of projects on which you can train both your design and data skills.
We’re looking for
A clear proof of your data science skills. This can be a degree or some sort of portfolio in which you showcase other projects you have completed (preferably, you bring both a diploma and a portfolio to our attention).
Good communication skills (Dutch/English) and a willingness to learn from others. Although you will be working independently for quite some part of your time, you will be communicating a lot with others. We love for you to be capable of making these moments a learning experience for yourself and, even better, for others.
Good knowledge of data science concepts and, at least, one programming language to translate them in (Python, R, Matlab,…).
Good knowledge of databases and, at least, one query language to use them (probably SQL).
Good knowledge of statistics.
Some knowledge of machine learning (we’ll get you up to speed though).
Why you'll love us
You will get the chance to develop yourself as a data scientist (by mentoring you in projects, by paying for your education and by putting your development first whenever we can).
You will work with a supporting team of data enthusiasts.
You will work on a diverse set of projects (ranging from client work to educational material).
You will work in close collaboration with our managing partner dr. Maarten Vanhoof. Maarten is a data expert who has been leading data analysis and visualisation projects at universities and companies across the world (London, Boston, Paris, etc.).
Why this isn't something for you
You prefer to merely focus on reporting and repeating the same data analysis over and over. We are looking for someone who can explore datasets, find opportunities for a business and help translate data to the real-world.
About Craftzing Data
We are Craftzing Data, a daughter company of Craftzing with a focus on data. Our main focus is to help clients define their data strategy. We do so by talking to them, exploring their data in creative ways and, sometimes, by building prototypes for their data projects. This means that we are always looking for ways to explain elements of data to our clients. Be it by teaching them, explaining methodologies, showing them insights from their data, or by coming up with potential ways in which they could use their data, internally or towards the general public.
Our Craftzing Data team is backed up by the whole Craftzing team who bring in lots of experience in UX and UI design, development, business strategy, performance marketing, etc. Therefore, there is tons of opportunities to learn from different experts.
