JOB DESCRIPTION

The Reference is offering a broad range of data services and products for its clients and prospects. In this context, we are looking for data consultants to work with clients on business and marketing intelligence, and other data-related services. Within your advisory role and by using state-of-the-art visualization tools you communicate business performance and apprise middle- and C-level management with your advice.

Most importantly: you are eager and curious to learn.

  • With the help of visualization tools, you are comfortable communicating to people who have very few or no technological or analytical skills;
  • You are curious, studious, intelligent, somewhat stubborn and you don't take 'no' for an answer;
  • Although it is definitely a plus if you have an academic background, being business-minded is an absolute requirement;
  • Although we encourage you to be yourself, it is crucial that you are comfortable with putting yourself on the map within large companies.

HARD SKILLS

  • You are fluent in Python and/or R;
  • You are familiar with one or more visualization tools;
  • You are familiar or you are willing to dive deep in verticals such as recommendation engines, search engines, feed managers, etc...;
