You will join our Data Science team as a full-time Data Scientist to help strengthen our analytics and machine learning capabilities. The Data Science team holds a key role in our company by developing tools, algorithms and models to support both strategic and operational decisions. The team further assists all parts of our company with analyses to help us become more data-driven. We believe the future of urban mobility is shaped by those who understand how to utilize data.

You will be part of a small team that solves a great variety of analytical tasks. As a growing company, our priorities change frequently, so you must be able to quickly adapt to new tasks and be willing to continuously develop your professional skills. Examples of projects you will be working on include:

We run our technical stack on Google Cloud, and you will work with Google’s cutting-edge technology like BigQuery, Cloud Composer, DataFlow and AI Platform to process and understand data. It is not a requirement that you have a lot of experience with these products, but you must be willing and ready to learn.

The deadline for applying is October 20th, with a starting date in January 2020 or August 2020. We think professionals with some experience or recent graduates will be most suitable for the position.

We’re looking for someone that

  • hold a degree in a data science related field

  • are fluent in both Norwegian and English
  • have experience with developing machine learning models and/or optimization models that solve real-world problems

We can offer you

  • a young, fast-growing Norwegian tech company
  • a flexible workplace with a high level of responsibility for your own tasks
  • a modern office, located in downtown Oslo (Parkveien 29)
  • the opportunity to solve real problems in a visible and tangible way
  • the chance to contribute to sustainable change in cities and make a positive change in people’s lives
