Senior Data scientist @Yolt

The Yolt Team

We created Yolt because we want to give everyone the power to be smart with their money. We are challenging the status quo of money management and making it effortless and fun! We are part of a team that operates in a unique space on the boundaries of a large multinational bank (ING) with an entrepreneurial attitude of a start-up.

Our current challenge is to scale our solution and support our beta launch, build an engaging relationship with the users of the app and keep on developing the product based on feedback and the ideas we get from our customers. We are a small, dedicated team of highly skilled people who work hard, fast and never forget to celebrate our successes.

To support our vision we are looking for an exceptional Data Scientist with experience in creating smart and scalable algorithms.

Yolt is on its way and we would love to take you with us for the ride!

You will work in one of the finest engineering teams of the world, to implement the algorithms and visualisations you’ve helped to build as prototypes. You will design, analyse and interpret business hypothesis and explore datasets by using the available tools.
