Data Scientist


Are you interested in the practical applications of AI? Do you get enthusiastic about optimizing and implementing the right machine learning models for the issue you are presented with? Do you have the skills and ambition to deal with the complex mathematics behind prediction models, as well as to think along with the customer to define his problem? Then a role as a data scientist at Bright Cape is really something for you! Within our multidisciplinary teams, you are constantly working on optimizing processes by means of the latest data applications and techniques. In this way, you create value for both our customers and our internal products.

At Bright Cape, we strive to meet our client’s challenges across the full data science spectrum. Some of the topics our data scientists have been working on over the past year include:

  •  Use of machine learning algorithms for predictive maintenance
  • Building forecasting models to predict the optimal price and stocks
  • Developing a control channel and an accompanying dashboard to provide insight into financial processes
  • Automatic customer screening by combining internal and external data sources
  • Process mining

We have open vacancies for both our Eindhoven office and our Amsterdam office, so choose the location that suits you best!

What you are going to do:

  • Guide a diverse group of customers on their data journey and in their digital transformation;
  • Together with the customer’s domain experts get to the bottom of the problem in order to arrive at the best solution;
  • Build working data science solutions instead of delivering reports;
  • Apply algorithms to practical problems to create value and optimize processes;
  • Researching and implementing cutting edge machine learning algorithms;
  • Collaborate with colleagues to code, train, and deploy production-ready algorithms;
  • Provide training to transfer the developed data science solution to the end-users;
  • Help to determine the direction of machine learning and artificial intelligence within Bright Cape

What we are looking for:

  • Completed technical academic degree, preferably Data Science, Mathematics, Physics, Econometrics, or a related field;
  • Programming experience in one or more scripting languages: e.g. Python, R;
  • Knowledge of artificial intelligence, (un)supervised learning, and/or computer vision;
  • Experience with Git and version control;
  • Knowledge of the mathematics behind machine learning models and also the ability to explain these complex matters in a simple way;
  • An entrepreneur with a commercial attitude;
  • Project management skills;
  • Someone who quickly masters new processes and complex subjects;
  • Drive to learn more

It is a bonus if you have:

  • Experience with querying languages like SQL;
  • Experience with cloud computing (Microsoft Azure, AWS);
  • Experience with deploying and maintaining data science solutions in production
  • Knowledge of process mining

We offer

  • An entrepreneurial environment in which you are heard;
  • Freedom to do what you love;
  • An innovative environment. We use data science to rethink and reshape many domains;
  • The opportunity to keep learning;
  • Great colleagues and a young and dynamic team;
  • Annual ski-trip (that we count down to from the moment we get back)
