Draw conclusions and make predictions based upon data

Data Scientists apply machine learning techniques in order to train, evaluate and implement models which can solve problems for businesses.


As a data scientist you process large amounts of data into useful information, often for the management of a company. Think about sales and financial data. The work is similar to that of a data engineer. The data engineer only processes historical data into information while as a data scientist you also make predictions based on analysis. For this you use special tools, software and also elements of machine learning. With machine learning, you have computers learn through mathematical techniques without explicit programming in what to look for. In doing so they may also be able to find hidden insights.

As a data scientist you spend a lot of time thinking, figuring out and puzzling. If that leads to new insights, it will bring you a lot of satisfaction. You have contact with, for example, managers, project leaders, developers, data analysts or customers from whom you receive the data and with whom you discuss your findings.

You can work as a data scientist with, for example, banks, publishers, IT companies or multinationals in the field of production or retail. You can also become a consultant at a consultancy organization or work for external clients.
