Senior Data Science Consultant

Job description

Join one of the leading Data & A.I. consultancies in the Netherlands and work on challenging projects for large organizations. We believe that data is only valuable when it's activated. We build and deliver data driven solutions in Java, Python or Scala using technologies like Spark, Kafka, Elastic, Tensorflow, Sci-Kit learn and Cloud-native components (Azure, AWS).

Our experts in Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning and (Big) Data create customizable solutions that bring business value to our clients. To meet the demands of our growing customer base, we are now looking for a Senior Data Science Consultant to strengthen our team.

How would your contribution & day-to-day look like?

The Senior Data Science Consultant position is a dynamic role that requires you to act as an advisor to our clients and design and develop the right AI application that can solve their business challenge.

As an advisor you understand and investigate the challenges that our clients face. After the consultancy and designing phase, you take over responsibility for the implementation of the solution together with a team of engineers, data scientists and a project manager. From a customer perspective you are the point of contact on progress, quality, and content. In addition to leading the project, you are still actively involved as a data scientist on a daily basis within the team. Next to that, you love to help fellow data scientists grow by coaching them and sharing your expertise.

You will also be involved with our continuous solution developments and setting the directions for data science and AI. As this domain is continuously evolving you keep yourself up to date with the trends and translate them to your work and organizational approaches when applicable. We expect you to have an opinion and vision about AI and its applications. Relevant topics like ethics and trust, are made tangible and transparent towards clients and the internal community.

The right person for this job has excellent communication skills to lead all aspects of project execution and delivery, including presenting technical and business concepts to a variety of stakeholders. When a customer faces significant issues, you step in to use your technical depth and machine learning expertise to find a solution. You can also influence, consult (providing options with pros, cons, and risks) around all key decisions, both functional and technical, during project delivery. You are responsible for making sure the customer understands what the project will deliver, but even more importantly, that the project delivers what is valuable for the customer. You can make complex things easy, and handling complex tasks comes as second nature.
