Data Insights Consultant

Job description

Daltix is enabling big names in retail to make better decisions based on big data rather than gut-feeling. We collect, standardize and visualize data tailored to our client's needs on a daily basis, removing all the data hassle on their side. We provide the tools at their fingertips with which they can measure the influence of (regional) competition, prices, promotions, products and assortments in an ever-changing dynamic market. 


In order to realize our sustained growth, we are looking for hands-on consultants who want to actively contribute to our ambitious growth plans and bring (scalable) value to our clients' needs based on big data insights and reporting.


This position is ideal for people who are innovative, hands-on and would like to experience the business of an ambitious scale-up from close-by and take on the responsibility of driving client projects that impact their business on a daily basis.


About the role

Our Professional Services team is looking for additional member to enable Daltix to scale the value of its data and expertise in the niche field of big data in retail. Next to applied data scientists, we are hiring Data Insights Consultants who are responsible for identifying value at multiple clients and building solutions together with our clients. Your projects and input will directly impact the strategies and way of working of big name retailers and suppliers.


You will work in team with your colleagues (both technical and business profiles) and -of course- our clients in order to spearhead innovation with regards to the Holy Grails in retail, ie. price elasticity, product categorization, promotion ROI, etc.


You will not need to worry with spending too much time on project setups and implementations: Daltix has an existing, flexible retail data platform in place with the necessary tools and standardized data sets. You can immediately benefit from Daltix's platform and existing infrastructure to quickly set up client environments and create value for their specific business cases.


What we expect from you

  • Understand clients needs and define projects through workshops.
  • Have the ability to translate client feedback into pragmatic technical solutions
  • Scope potential operational hurdles and communicate these to the appropriate (internal and external) stakeholders in a comprehensive manner.
  • Develop and deliver insights and solutions to create client value based on Daltix’ tools, analysis & consultancy together with your co-workers.
  • Every project and approach you undertake has a clear business value in mind
  • Lead by example by delivering qualitative solutions while ensuring deadlines are met.

    What do we offer

    • We are a young, entrepreneurial and fast-growing company; you will have the unique big opportunity to shape our future by having an impact on how we will grow further.
    • You will be surrounded by a talented, diverse and international team of top-notch experts
    • Flexible work arrangements with a lot of autonomy in what you do and where you do it - we trust you to know your schedule and work when you feel most productive
    • You will be able to participate in relevant training to stay at the top of your field. Be part of an interesting and dynamic start-up and enjoy the scaling process.
    • An open company culture where transparency, respect and fun are as crucial as qualitative work
    • Excellent work-life balance and occasional drinks and team events (even during COVID times we do an effort)
    • You will be offered a competitive wage  and health insurance coverage

    Job requirements

    • Degree in a relevant subject (e.g. business engineering, civil engineering or similar degrees)
    • 1+ years’ experience in applied research projects and/or business analytics
    • The ability to understand business processes and map to mathematical form
