Data Scientist

Job description

Do you get high on data? Great we do too! The coming years we are facing hyper-growth in The Netherlands and the rest of Europe. Therefore, our BI team is expanding and we are looking for a Software Engineer who will work closely with our data ‘driven’ guru, Ruben Helsloot, to define and set up the foundation for BI at felyx. The goal is to help build our Data Scientist tooling and setup a data pipeline to help analyze and optimize our product.

As urbanization is rising and the air quality is deteriorating, we feel the need to make our cities greener and healthier by offering a sustainable mobility solution. Besides, we offer a new and fun way around town! At felyx, everybody within their own expertise is contributing to a cleaner city by making this swift door-to-door transportation the new status quo. We are working together as an ambitious team of entrepreneurs, operators, marketers and engineers, and looking to grow as we scale the business throughout Europe. Do you share our DNA: self-starting, open, social, driven and with a good sense of humor? Great! Join our ride!

What you’ll be doing

As we’re expanding in the rest of Europe our data is growing exponentially. As Data Scientist you will work directly with the CFO and COO providing the business with the means to answer complex questions. Your responsibilities are combination of developing an internal analytics platform and combining different data sources into a data warehouse. Of course, the number one priority is for the data to be correct. But when it comes to developing the analytics platform, important factors are user experience, performance and scalability. To sum it up:

  • Develop our internal analytic tools in PostgreSQL and Python

  • Combine data from diverse sources into a centralized data warehouse

  • Implement data visualization using d3.js and AngularJS

  • Brainstorm about product design and UX

  • Meet with internal stakeholders and translate their questions into clearly defined issues and provide clear cut insights

  • Contribute to making felyx increasingly data-driven

But, not important to forget, is that we encourage you to grow with the company and within your role as we are continually growing in our journey towards ‘world domination’. Just kidding, market leader in Europe will do (for now).


We truly get excited if you

  • Share our mindset: critical thinking, ambitious, self-starting, social and you don't take yourself too seriously

  • Enjoy working with data and building software (2-5 years experience in a similar position)

  • Have extensive experience with Python, JavaScipt and SQL

  • Have a focus on software quality, you can challenge a solution and promote different viewpoints if necessary
  • See yourself as a flexible person in terms of getting the job done while becoming the leading global platform

  • Have excellent communication skills in Dutch and English

Bonus points if you

  • Are excited about operating an urban mobility service

  • Have a degree in Software Engineering or Computer/Data Science (hbo/wo)

  • Have experience with setting up data pipelines using tools like Airflow

Joining our ride is becoming part of the leading global platform in urban mobility. Having a direct impact on the business with a high degree of independence, will give you the opportunity to develop yourself rapidly. Maybe also nice to know: we have a very strong, family-like team and great central location on the Herengracht!
