We are looking for an experienced, customer-centric and creative senior data scientist to join the team that will drive these efforts.
As a senior data scientist in Exact you will use machine learning and AI to design new features that make bookkeeping easier and less time consuming, and that deliver rich financial insights that allow our customers to grow their business. You will lead technical decisions on the use of descriptive, predictive and prescriptive analytics to support our customers in their data-driven day-to-day decisions, and coach more junior data scientists into implementing your solutions. You will work closely with product teams to embed your smart algorithms in engaging UIs and fully functional products, and brainstorm with product owners and managers about new ways of bringing added value to our customers through AI and analytics.
Last but not least, together with the data science team, you’ll have a lot of fun brainstorming about challenging problems, discussing about the latest research findings, and involving the rest of the organization in your work to promote a data driven culture within Exact.
An overview of the accountabilities:
  • You design and develop Machine Learning and AI solutions to embed in Exact’s products
  • You coordinate the work that leads to the delivery of near production ready code to the engineering teams
  • You combine structured and unstructured data sources to determine patterns and help product teams to develop and innovate
