Employment: Full-time
As a Data Scientist, you develop the intelligence and analyses that give Rabobank the leading edge in banking in the Netherlands

Imagine… that you will work with important data sets which consist of billions of structured and unstructured records of transactions, clicks, documents or web data. Imagine yourself on a state-of-the-art Data Lab where you have a dedicated data cluster with all the open source tools at your disposal. Imagine yourself with the task to utilise this data and tools to the full extent to manage the loan portfolio of the bank or determine opportunities to decrease costs. If you are interested in solving complex puzzles and like to add value to our clients by making data and analytics work, read on! 

Making a difference

As a Data Scientist, you develop the intelligence and analyses that give Rabobank the leading edge in banking in the Netherlands:

  • You are a specialist in advanced data analytics and will fulfil a broad role in developing the Finance domain’s analytical transformation;
  • You will operate within a complex web of data sources and advise and execute analyses that lead to new insights;
  • You will present your insights and products to various stakeholders within the bank, from executive management to your colleagues;
  • You will actively participate in knowledge sharing, meetups, code reviews and deep dives to develop the ambitious team that you are part of;
  • You will work in small multi-disciplinary teams which consist of roles such as business consultants and data engineers.

With each other

Within Rabobank the Chief Financial Officer (CFO) is responsible for the financial performance of the bank. From that perspective the CFO is also responsible for all data related to the bank’s loan portfolio and funding sources. This provides a fertile foundation for analytics initiatives to help steer the bank. From that viewpoint a new analytics team is set up to streamline these initiatives and put them into practice.

The CFO Data Analytics team (7 FTE) is a group of talented people, who, together with the larger analytics community, want to accelerate the CFO domain’s analytics efforts. To achieve our goals we are searching for new talent to strengthen the team.

The CFO domain has an in-depth understanding of the combined risk and finance data and is therefore uniquely positioned to help the organization unlock such value. It is our belief that the skill set needed to do so using advanced analytics, should be organized near the core processes. Cross functional teams will allow us to make optimal use of the available domain knowledge, while still allowing data scientists to work together closely and learn from each other.

The CFO Data Analytics team is part of the larger Rabobank analytics community. You will therefore also closely cooperate with the Data Science & Business Consulting team within our Digital Transformation Office which consists of 45 colleagues in a variety of roles, including: Data Scientists, Data Engineers, Platform Engineers and Consultants.

With you

Abstract thinking, creativity, strong analytical and quantitative skills are essential for the role of Data Scientist within our team. Hence it is important that you recognise yourself in the checklist below:

  • A Master’s Degree in Computer Science, Econometrics, Artificial Intelligence, Applied Mathematics or equivalent;
  • Experience in data analytics and in statistical (regression, clustering and classification), descriptive and diagnosis methods; knowledge of forecasting methods;
  • An inquisitive mind-set eager to solve complex problems;
  • Demonstrable programming experience in Python or another programming language such as Java/C/C++/R;
  • Experience with DataIku is considered an advantage;
  • Experience with Jupyter-Notebooks;
  • Strong analytical and social skills and the capability to translate data intelligence into valuable insights for the CFO domain is considered an advantage;
  • Fluent in English, both verbally and in writing;
  • Advanced proficiency in Dutch is considered an advantage;
  • Located in the Netherlands.
