Junior Developer / Data Scientist

Job description

Why you want to be a Champ

Hotelchamp provides hotels with the tools to improve their website conversion. They’re pretty darn good tools but we just can’t resist adding new features, constantly testing and turbocharging our product with machine-learning. Wrangling all the data gathered from our client websites and our obsession with optimisation is busy work though – there’s code to critique, bugs to squash and AI to prevent from attaining sentience. Our Groningen-based dev team could use a hand.

What you’ll be doing:

  • Design, build, test and document data integration and big data solutions
  • Aggregate and analyse data
  • Help us with development of the core product
  • (you probably have more technical questions than the guy writing this sentence knows the answers to – if you’d like more specific information about what you’ll get to work on, our Head of Technology Santal van der Veen is super-friendly and happy to answer questions about the role)


What you bring to the team:

  • MSc. or PhD degree in artificial intelligence, statistics, or a related field
  • Python programming skills + data science python tools (numpy, scipy, pandas, scikit learn, matplotlib, etc)
  • SQL (Redshift)
  • Machine learning
  • Statistics
  • Preferable knowledge of Hadoop, Amazon Web Services, NoSQL
  • Professional proficiency in English
  • You are able to translate complex matters into straightforward solutions
  • You live in the area of Groningen.

What we give to you

  • A group of energetic, multicultural and totally good-looking colleagues (over 20 nationalities in a team of 50 people!)
  • The opportunity to carve your own signature into the growth story of Hotelchamp, one of the fastest growing startups in Europe
  • As the old guy in Spiderman says, with great power, comes great responsibility – take control of your development and guide where you want to take your career within the company
  • Thank God it’s Thursday – Thursday drinks with the whole team and Thursday company lunch on us
  • Some of the most competitive but poorly skilled ping-pong players in the world – prepare to be challenged (and probably victorious)
