Who are we looking for?

We have a strong belief in the power of data and have always been data driven. We truly believe that part of our success has been, and always will be, about putting time into digging, finding the unexpected and using data as a resource for challenging our daily work. For our data scientist we are looking for the following:

Has strong coding and technical skills. Will be in charge of our pipeline and lead implementation of new tools and processes.

Machine learning
Has a passion for new technologies and especially within machine learning. To understand what technology to apply when.

Data architecture
Deep understanding on data structures from inception to model to business decision. 

Challenging thinking
Works close to the entire organization (CEO, Product and Marketing) and, with critical thinking, also challenges the ideas and ways we move forward as a company. There will be concrete questions that need answers but much of your work will be to take charge of formulating the questions together with the team. 

Is a great communicator and makes sure the data is being understood and used in a way that actually makes us take better decisions.

Our stack

We do love data and it's something that is already a big part of the daily life for the entire team. Our current stack consist mainly of Redshift, Stitchdata and Chartio. Our Data Scientist will be in charge of the setup and we expect that person to bring experience and knowledge about this to the team. 

Do you also have a background in youth sports? Fantastic! It's a big plus if you share our passion for the positive impact sports can play in the lives of children and youths: encouraging healthy lifestyles, building lasting friendships, growing children into leaders and acting as a bridge between cultures, etc.

We are super excited about finding a fellow data-loving new team member for our continued journey.
