Data Scientist

GoDataDriven | Part of Xebia

While the talent scarcity within IT is at an all-time high and still growing, Xebia sticks to the mission of “aiming for thought leadership”, thus working with the best professionals in the market.

At Xebia we are always looking for talented people to deliver value to our clients and their customers. You will get the chance to work with passionate professionals within their field of expertise. We are looking forward to working with you!

How will you help in creating value with
Data and AI.

We build strong data and AI practices to deliver value to our clients and their customers. In the past, our team of data professionals has predicted the daily demand for millions of loaves of bread, built advanced energy-saving algorithms to nationwide scale, and set up data innovation labs at large multinational corporations. We have already enjoyed great success in making top companies AI-driven -- just think of what more we can achieve when YOU join our team!

As a senior data scientist, you are responsible for the creation of business value using data and AI. You are capable to rapidly learn about the domain of our customers and apply your experience with getting data-driven applications into production; not only by yourself but also by coaching and mentoring other people in your team.

What you will do to make data intensive-applications work effectively and securely.

You start by assessing the value-driven use cases at the client and a good sense of what success looks like. Then you apply your skills in mathematics, statistics, machine learning, and programming to analyze and model data. You work mostly with notebooks in Python and are also able to translate your notebooks into a working prototype. Together with a machine learning engineer or data engineer, you help to get the model into production and assess the value it creates. If required, you also set up a good way of working for your team, with a proper dev-ops for AI approach.

When you're working on-site with a client, you eventually come across something really difficult to solve. Luckily, every few weeks everyone from GoDataDriven comes to the office to work remotely on their projects and you have the opportunity to discuss and even solve your problems with the help of the hive mind of your colleagues. 

This is your dream job if...

  • if you like to tell a story with data and the latest AI technology
  • if you want to have an impact on the bottom line of organizations
  • if you like working for different clients and like the excitement of getting to learn new environments and people once in a while

This is not your dream job if...

  • if you have less than 2 years of working experience in a similar role
  • if you lack a working knowledge of the Dutch language
  • if you are not excited by working in teams and coaching people in their role as a data scientist or analyst


We organize amazing events; like skiing together or going to Ibiza, dinner and/or theme-parties, sportweeks, our own MUD or TED events… or organize your own event! The sky is the limit.

Training Budget

A real training budget of €5,000, without a fight. In fact, it’s your obligation to spend it every year.

Your Devices and Books

Choose the laptop and phone you want! And on top of that, you can choose new devices every 2 year. You will also have the advantage of an unlimited budget for ordering the books you need to grow as professional.

Conferences and Speaking

Attending and speaking at relevant worldwide conferences doesn’t come out of your vacation time.

Knowledge Sharing

Our Open Kitchens, bi-weekly knowledge exchanges, Innovation Days, frequent tech-rallies, and TED-style conferences, all contribute to exploring and achieving your potential, individually and collectively as Xebians.

Great Community

In addition to internal knowledge sharing, Xebia is also an active player in multiple communities and regularly host, speak, attend, and organize Meetups and conferences. Have an idea for a meetup we should sponsor? Or want to start a new one? You’ve got it. Knowledge sharing is a core value for us.

About GoDataDriven

In 2009, we were pioneers in implementing modern data platforms like Hadoop. Back then, Big Data wasn’t a common term. But the technology opened up new business opportunities for our customers, which is always what matters.

The thrill of replacing a very expensive, licensed data platform with an open-source platform that easily outperformed its predecessor inspired us to become the country’s leading experts in open-source Big Data technologies. So, it should come as no surprise that GoDataDriven was the first Cloudera partner outside of the US.

After implementing Big Data technology, we began offering Data Engineering services and hired our first data scientist in 2012. We have since built a team of incredibly talented data scientists, many with Ph.D.’s. Our lead data scientists and lead data engineers are now complemented by top-notch analytics translators who work with the business to point out and develop AI use cases into applications that are a joy to use and add value to your bottom-line.
