Job – Infofarm – DataScientist

Infofarm

InfoFarm breidt uit en is op zoek naar een nieuwe Data Scientist!

BEDRIJFSPROFIEL

InfoFarm is een Data Science bedrijf dat zich toespitst in het opleveren van kwaliteitsvolle Data Science en Big Data oplossingen aan haar klanten. Onze naam danken we aan één van de vele informele brainstormsessies onder collega’s die spontaan tijdens de middagpauze ontstaan. Een gezellige sessie later hadden we de hele analogie met het boerderijleven op poten: we planten ideeën, we ploegen door onze klant zijn data, laten deze groeien met andere data of inzichten en oogsten business waarde door er verschillende (machine learning) technieken op toe te passen.

We hebben een uniek team met verscheidene talenten en verschillende achtergronden: Data Scientists (mensen met een onderzoek achtergrond uit een kwantitatieve richting, Big Data Developers (sterk technische Java programmeurs) en Infrastructuurmensen (de bits-and-bytes mensen). Wij ontwikkelen samen geweldige oplossingen voor onze klanten uit verschillende sectoren. Om ons team te versterken zijn we op zoek naar een Big Data Developer. 

FUNCTIEOMSCHRIJVING

Als Data Scientist exploreer je datasets, verschaf je inzichten en help je klanten actie te ondernemen gebaseerd op deze inzichten. Je werkt zelfstandig of in een gemengd team, ofwel in onze kantoren ofwel in detachering bij de klant. Je bent niet bang om met creatieve oplossingen voor complexe problemen naar voren te treden. Je gidst onze Big Data Developers in het bouwen van Big Data applicaties gebaseerd op de inzichten die jij verkregen hebt. Je zal in verschillende sectoren en omgevingen belanden. De ene dag werk je voor een telecom bedrijf, om de dag nadien het waterzuivering systeem van België beter te leren kennen en ten slotte ook nog een Big Data applicatie in de logistieke sector te bouwen. Bij InfoFarm zijn geen twee projecten gelijkaardig, maar dat schrikt je niet af. Je kijkt er naar uit om bij te leren over verschillende businessen en om nieuwe ontwikkelingen en technologieën op de markt te volgen, alsook om  deze opgedane kennis uit te dragen naar onze klanten en binnen het team. 

FUNCTIEVEREISTEN

  • Je hebt een master diploma in een kwantitatieve richting (wiskunde, ingenieur, …). Een doctoraat is een pluspunt.
  • Kennis van een data analyse taal (R, Python, …) geeft je een voorsprong. Bereidheid om een van deze talen te leren is een vereiste.
  • Kennis van SQL is een voordeel.
  • Het leren begrijpen van Big Data tools (Hadoop, Hive, Pig, Spark, Spark MLlib, …) schrikt je niet af.
  • Kennis van Java en Scala vormen een meerwaarde.

Apply:

Make sure that you are a member of the Brussels Data Science Community linkedin group before you apply. Join  here.

Please note that we also manage other vacancies that are not public, if you want us to bring you in contact with them too, just send your CV to datasciencebe@gmail.com .
