Beste Philippe,

Eerst en vooral bedankt voor het accepteren van mijn invite, the network always wins.
Zoals ik zei rekruteren wij momenteel voor een van onze klanten net ten zuiden van Antwerpen een Big Data Specialist. Hun huidige big data omgeving wordt te klein voor hun noden, dus deze persoon krijgt de vrijheid om een volledig nieuwe omgeving op te bouwen binnen een industriële omgeving.
Indien mogelijk had ik deze vacature graag gepubliceerd via de website van datascience. Kunt u mij hierin helpen?

Met vriendelijke groeten,

Sven Van Mol
Career Manager @ Modis
