  • knowledge of Apache Spark, Apache Kafka, Amazon AWS
  • experience with data modelling using CQL/SQL query languages
  • an interest in high software quality

  • inspire your colleagues with your thirst for mastering the things you work with
  • are a passionate data scientist with data-oriented personality, proud of the quality of your work

Bonus points for:
  • an interesting Github profile, or proven track record of open source contributions

We offer:
  • an amazing opportunity to work with, and create cutting edge technology within the area of machine learning and artificial intelligence!
  • work in the Amazon AWS environment with a modern technology stack, such as Cassandra, Spark, Kafka, ElasticSearch
  • no technical dept
