We are looking for an accomplished Data Scientist who has a proven record of designing and implementing custom data analytics solutions. You will contribute to or lead (depending on your experience) the development of innovative data-driven software solutions to help our clients overcome a variety of science and engineering challenges, all related to the capture, storage, visualisation and analysis of complex data.

Our projects can span a range of activities and your responsibilities will include:
•Combine domain knowledge and technical skills to understand and solve the complex analytics challenges affecting our clients.
•Develop innovative analytics solutions using your expertise in data mining and statistical analysis, modelling and simulation, data visualisation, machine learning and big data.
•Help clients to clarify and shape their analytics needs and suggest technical and business approaches/solutions to address those needs.
•Building strong relationships, communicating and collaborating with clients and colleagues, communicating clearly about project goals, challenges and results

Our projects are exciting and rewarding and provide plenty of opportunities to learn and develop. They can be based either on client sites or in Tessella offices, so you will be expected to undertake regular travel, usually no more than one hour from your base office. You will be assigned to projects based on your existing skills and experience, but you will also be expected to quickly learn new domains and technologies and apply innovative thinking and transferable skills to solve new challenges.


Opleiding MBO+, WO
During your career at Tessella, you will be expected to learn and develop your skills, but before you join us you should have:
•MSc or PhD in science, mathematics or engineering. A PhD would be an advantage.
•Proven experience in interpreting complex data using a variety of analytical, statistical or machine learning techniques.
•Computational modelling and software development underpin many of the solutions we provide, so you should have some experience of using R or Matlab or any of our other core languages: Java, Python, C, C#, C++.
•Excellent interpersonal skills and the ability to explain complex concepts to clients and colleagues from all backgrounds.
•The eagerness and capacity to quickly learn new domains and technologies.
•Proficiency in both Dutch and English. Applications should be submitted in English.
•While not essential, any experience with data analysis tools such as Hadoop or Spotfire would be an advantage.

Career Development and Training

We offer excellent prospects for your future. While we do offer traditional career paths, most staff end up shaping their own based on their aspirations, the skills they have developed and the projects they have worked on. As your career progresses, you will be able to contribute to projects in a variety of roles, from Data Scientist and Software Developer to Business Analyst and Project Manager, or any combination of these. We take personal development seriously and all staff receive an annual training allowance of 150 hours, which can be used to learn new technical and soft skills, often leading to recognised professional qualifications.

The wellbeing and engagement of all staff is our priority and we work in a collaborative, cooperative environment with a good work-life balance. We offer an excellent salary and benefits package, including a profit sharing scheme and a range of flexible benefits, and we support flexible working requests where possible.


Tessella is the Analytics World Class Center of the Altran Group, a global leader in innovation and high-tech engineering consulting. We are leaders in the field of data science and analytics and we have developed a reputation for helping clients solve their most complex technical challenges by unlocking the power of their data, enabling them to make better-informed business decisions.

Our work is at the cutting-edge of high-tech R&D and our projects are varied and rewarding. For example, in pharmaceutical companies we solve computational problems for chemists at the early stages of drug discovery and development, allowing them to get a head start when they begin their experiments in the lab, ultimately getting drugs to market faster. We help consumer goods companies model and simulate new product ideas and perform data analysis to improve their processes. We also support oil and gas engineers with the computational challenges of exploration and production, from reservoir modelling to writing control systems. In space and defence, we have written algorithms and solved complex mathematical problems to control satellites and radar systems.
