What does your day as a Data Scientist at Digital Power look like?

Today, you start with a work out, start working a bit later and write another piece of code in the evening. Tomorrow you’ll start a little earlier, so that you can get to a dinner on time. Or would you rather go for a walk in the woods with your dog at lunchtime? As long as you communicate clearly and are available to your clients and colleagues, you are free to organise your own time.

The places you work each week is a combination of on-site at the customer's premises, working from home and of course a pleasant day at one of our offices in Amsterdam and Den Bosch. You prefer to travel by public transport: great for the environment, flexible and free of charge for you, even on days when you are not working. Is a (temporary) car more convenient for you? A lot is possible in consultation.

Plan your working week in a way that suits you best. As long as you deliver excellent work, your clients are satisfied and your colleagues can rely on you, we are happy and proud to have you as our colleague!
