Are you up for a challenge? Do you want to combine strategy and data science?
We look forward to meeting you!
Consultant Data Science
As a Consultant Data Science, you will find new strategic growth opportunities for our clients by intelligently analysing large amounts of data. Also, you will use your data science skills to build custom data products that shape a strategy or directly realise online growth. For example, you will build:
- a monitoring tool that collects data and visualises market dynamics and competitor behaviour;
- an automated self-learning Bayesian bot to predict marketplace prices;
- an algorithm to segment customers and determine the best way to approach them;
- a self-learning gradient boosting model with over 2000 features to predict selling probability and potential revenue.
You work in close cooperation with the client team and your BLOOM colleagues, in project teams consisting of several junior and senior consultants. Your personal and professional development is key. On the job and through trainings you will learn to think like an online entrepreneur, structure complex problems, evaluate online business models; advise managers and investors, create and deliver compelling stories, and manage projects and people.
You are an ideal candidate to become BLOOM’s next Consultant Data Science if you have 2-4 years of working experience in a data science role, preferably at a consultancy firm or a fast-growing tech company. You have demonstrated ability to work with large quantities of information and are comfortable with common programming languages and frameworks in data science and machine learning (e.g. Python, R, SQL, and Spark). A bonus is your experience with supplementary tools and methods on the data engineering side (e.g. web scraping, working with distributed clusters, and cloud environments) and relevant software engineering practices (e.g. containerised deployment, CI/CD). You have some international experience and are fluent in Dutch and English.
The remuneration consists of a competitive salary. Since we encourage entrepreneurship, you will receive a significant bonus depending on BLOOM’s results. Delicious lunch, a top-end MacBook, travel allowance, and a pension scheme are also included. In your first year you will complete the BLOOM academy, with numerous internal and external trainings. Also, you will get continuous coaching and set and evaluate personal quarterly development goals. We have frequent team activities and a yearly trip abroad. We also highly value our personal time: 30 vacation days per year and ample working flexibility

What our alumni say:
“BLOOM has introduced me to the exciting, fast-moving, data-driven online world. The BLOOM team consists of only highly-motivated technical individuals. Working at BLOOM means you will have a steep learning curve: from day one you will get much responsibility. For me, coming from a (quantitative) finance background, that meant getting up to speed with the online methodology and vocabulary as soon as possible.
My first assignment at BLOOM was helping to set-up a vertical for an online multinational and that day I was already having lunch with the CEO of the company. Eric and Merlin make sure you find your way in the online world and discover where your strengths lie. I look back at my time at BLOOM as very valuable and well spent.”
