How do you make our customers happy?
Do you have an unsatisfiable appetite for data?
Can you explain complicated models in a simple way, and do you have a passion for data? Then Data Science at bol.com is the right place for you! Within a multi-disciplinary team (with data scientists, engineers, advanced analysts and product owners), you will tackle one of our many challenges. As part of this team you get the chance to join in their day-to-day processes. Besides your own project there is also room to work on tasks within this team which directly improve bol.com for our customers. You will work together with professionals who love to share their knowledge, allowing you to learn the ins and outs of the fast-growing market we’re in. And if your work is a success, it will be deployed, which means that your innovation will become part of our platform. In the meantime, there will be plenty of opportunities to get to know your colleagues: with a good cup of coffee or at our Friday drinks. No better way to kickstart your career.
Your responsibilities as a Data Science Intern
- Be part of one of bol.com’s Data Science teams.
- Work with immense amounts of data.
- Develop a model-based solution to a real problem within e-commerce.
- Present your results.
As a Data Science intern, you will work on one of the many complex challenges within bol.com. By crunching our many terabytes of data, you will investigate how this information can be used to improve our processes. Being technically well-versed is an absolute must to succeed. Together with your supervisor you will find a structural solution and a fast way to test its feasibility. You will fill one of our multiple positions in the domains: Search, Content, Assortment & Pricing, Forecasting or Personalization & Recommendations. You will not only have the chance to use state of the art models, but you will also be challenged on building your own solution and bring them live. We pay a lot of attention to the effective translation of results to concrete actions, implementations and/or recommendations during your internship. This will allow you to cover the complete process from challenge to solution.
