Data Scientist / Natural Language Processing (NLP) Expert

For a new team within Ixly we are looking for a passionate and driven data scientist. If you are as excited as we are to explore and tackle the challenges of unifying Natural Language Processing (NLP) with the domain of psychometrics and HR Analytics, please respond!

Function profile

As part of a small team of data scientists you will help shape and implement the innovative solutions required to make the automatic processing of open format data in an HR context a reality; effectively combining research, analysis, and productionisation in your daily activities.

Drawing upon your knowledge of data preparation, formatting, transformation and subsequent analysis you aim to create and evaluate extensive models aimed at optimising predictive power, fleshing out pitfalls and charting the requirements for the algorithms involved.

The team

Ixly is specialized in HR SaaS solutions. As a data scientist you will work together with other data scientists, mathematicians, software engineers and psychologists alike in order to develop innovative HR solutions.

Your background

As a full-fledged data scientist we expect the following skills and competencies:

  • Good analytical skills and an inquisitive mind.
  • A university degree in either artificial intelligence, feature engineering, mathematics, computational linguistics, engineering, or equivalent by measure of experience.
  • Demonstrable experience with NLP techniques, specifically transformers and BERT. Knowledge and application of other techniques such as Bi-LSTMs and word embedding techniques are also good to have.
  • Knowledge of and experience with object-oriented programming and relevant languages such as Python, Java, C++, or C#. Experience with multi-threading, REST and GraphQL software architectures are of added value.
  • Experience with machine learning libraries such as Tensorflow, Keras or Scikit-Learn.
  • Reading and writing fluency in the English language; preferably also in Dutch.

Our offer

Ixly is an organisation where you will find a team of highly dynamic and enthusiastic colleagues driven to deliver the optimal tooling for HR professionals in order to assess their employees, candidates, and clients. Working for Ixly, we can offer:

  • A competitive salary based on knowledge and working experience.
  • Flexible working hours.
  • Thorough compensation of traveling expenses.
  • Great organisational culture with many leisure activities and joint lunches.
  • A great office environment in Utrecht (once the Corona pandemic allows us once more).

Due to the pandemic virtually all of our colleagues are working from home. However, before this period the interchange of home & office working days was already well integrated and done by many within our organisation.
