Senior Developer / Data Scientist

Job description

We are the Champs

By quadrupling our team of Champs within a year, it’s safe to say that we are growing fast! We won’t stop and we can’t stop, and with great opportunities on the horizon, we’re on the hunt for the best and the brightest to join our team. Yes, we are a start-up and hell yes, we have lots of fun. But above all, we are ready to challenge ourselves each and every day. Are you up for it? Join in and celebrate with us.

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
  • Apache spark
  • Preferable knowledge of Hadoop, Amazon Web Services, NoSQL
  • Professional proficiency in English
  • An opinion on tabs vs. spaces
  • You are able to translate complex matters into straightforward solutions
  • You live in the area of Groningen.

What we will give you in return

  • A group of energetic and multicultural colleagues (20+ nationalities within a group of 50 people!)
  • A #champstyle work environment
  • Unique opportunity to craft your signature into our growth and to create your own development path within the company. A lot of growth, offers a lot of opportunities!;
  • Thursday drinks, Thursday company lunch an awesome Ping Pong tournaments to de-stress.
