  • You have experience with data visualization (for example using Tableau or matplotlib).
  • You are always curious to try out new tools and libraries for the analysis and visualisation of data.
  • You follow new developments in AI and understand how machine learning algorithms can help to analyse data.
  • You have a sharp eye for irregularities in a dataset and you will leave no stone unturned when looking for the cause of an anomaly.
  • You have a good understanding of statistics, in particular regarding hypothesis tests and statistical significance.
  • You desire to work in a small, agile team environment.
  • You communicate proactively and work independently.

What they offer
