Are you up for a challenge? Do you want to combine strategy and data science?
We look forward to meeting you!
As a Strategy Consultant, you help our clients to grow online. 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:
- analyse data (e.g. in R, Python);
- think like an online entrepreneur;
- structure complex problems;
- evaluate online business models;
- advise managers and investors;
- create and deliver compelling stories;
- manage projects and people.
You are an ideal candidate for the role of strategy consultant if you are fresh out of university — with an academic degree in science/engineering/econom(etr)ics — or have just started your professional career. You are an analytical and conceptual thinker, who always liked the math and science courses in school. As a social-savvy nerd, you are intrigued by the online world. At the same time, you have the drive and pragmatic mindset of an entrepreneur. You became street-smart while wandering around the globe and exploring life outside the curriculum, but you have not lost your curious mindset and are always eager to learn. You speak Dutch and English fluently, and might have some more language skills up your sleeve.
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:
I have been involved with this rockstar team from day one, and it has been a true kickstarter for my career. BLOOM’s sweetspot formula of data-driven strategy consulting and hands-on internet entrepreneurship enabled me to develop a broad set of professional competences. This allowed me to go after a new opportunity with the most exciting internet company in the emerging markets. Now based in Berlin, I look back at my time at BLOOM as extremely well invested.
Starting my career at BLOOM was one of the best choices I made. It gave me the opportunity to have a look behind the scenes of many interesting companies, while working on a variety of projects, ranging from giving strategic advise to writing machine learning programs. But foremost, I liked the pleasant working culture created by the people of BLOOM, who I still have warm contact with.
During the time I was working at BLOOM, I had the opportunity to work on a wide variety of projects: from developing a pricing strategy for a Dutch digital health player to analysing and improving the growth strategy for a food delivery platform in South Africa. I felt enabled from the first day — with responsibility and highly talented and motivated colleagues — giving me a steep learning curve. My experience as an advisor to online scale-ups and investors now enables me to make proper investment decisions at a VC firm.
