by Patricia Vermast   -   7 months ago


Numbers make you tick. Cutting-edge analytical methods are why you get up in the morning. You know how to use multivariate analysis techniques to overcome real business challenges. You enjoy looking for new ways to analyse data, including trying our new methodologies or software.

Most importantly, you have a true passion for data insights.

Share it with us, and work with an enthusiastic group of like-minded colleagues, as a data scientist in customer analytics at boobook.

Your role

You will be working on a diverse set of customer analytics projects giving you the opportunity to use different multivariate/machine learning techniques and to explore new ways of thinking.

As an innovative, forward-thinking consultancy firm, we’re always on the lookout for fresh ideas that help us and our clients to move to the next level. You will play a significant role in this.

This role is not purely analytical. It requires a mix of creative thinking, excellent client communication and the identification of new ways to apply our skills and services to solve a wider set of business problems.

As a data scientist, you will be able to directly influence the core activities and approaches of a small, engaged company that appreciates you, listens to you and develops your ideas. You will enjoy the benefits of a small team in a flexible, creative and international working environment.


As a potential data scientist, you:

  • have a university degree with preferably 2 to 5 years of experience in a customer/business intelligence analyst/data scientist role
  • have experience in multivariate analytics such as segmentation, conjoint, predictive modelling or other machine learning techniques
  • know-how and enjoy deriving actionable insights from customer data through analytics
  • translate analytical outcome into clear insights which our clients can easily understand and act upon
  • have experience in the use of analytical software (R, Python, Spark, SPSS, etc.)
  • very interested in exploring the use of new methodologies such as deep learning and text mining methods, with the focus on business application
  • operate well in a team and on your own
  • are eager and quick to learn
