Your responsibilities

Help us make our product vision a reality: To empower everyone to innovate by enabling a data-driven approach to innovation management.

In the past year, we have been working to get our data pipeline up and running, ingesting and enriching online data including news, patents and scientific publications relevant to our customer base, as well as building a knowledge graph. We are now looking to expand the initiative and grow our data team with the goal to seamlessly integrate smart functionality into our existing software solution. The focus is on getting the right information to the right users to help them research, plan and innovate – be it through content recommendations, intuitive search, or identification of emerging topics within our data lake.

As the team is currently still small, we are looking for somebody who is self-motivated and can meet a challenge head-on. We offer a great degree of conceptual freedom that will allow you to shape the direction of our data initiative, and see first hand the impact your work has on the product and our users’ success.

  • Guide the implementation of models and prototypes into production by collaborating with the engineering team.
Your Skills
  • Several years of professional experience as a data scientist.
  • Ability to empathize with users and their product needs and wishes.
  • Demonstrated ability to take product goals or customer needs, and translate them into a goal set and action plan.
  • Self-motivated and interested in taking ownership of initiatives from conception to implementation.
  • Goal oriented, impact-driven and practical: Ability to work with what’s available, find creative solutions, and to define what is still needed in order to reach goals and deliver value.

  • Very good understanding of data structures, and experience with SQL and noSQL databases.
