Jouw nieuwe baan en werkplek

Do you want to be a data scientist that makes impact on the lives of millions of people in the Netherlands and Belgium? Do you want to make sure they can buy all the groceries their hearts’ desire and not miss out on great bonus promotions? Would you like to build data science products in a company with the ambition to base all its decisions on data? Then we’re looking for you!


What will my role be?

In your role as a Senior Data Scientist you will be working in the Commerce domain within our Strategy & Analytics department. There are many exciting ongoing and upcoming projects in the commerce domain. In these projects you will build solutions that help category managers to do their day-to-day jobs. For example, by helping them forecast sales for upcoming bonus promotions. Or by enabling them to order enough stock for our customers, while minimizing waste at the end of each week. Alternatively, you could help them in optimizing our assortment; making sure each store offers what their local customers want most. We work closely with category managers, engineers and analysts and others in the organization to deliver value for millions of customers every single day.
