your challenge

Are you ready to unleash your talent and make impact on the future of data science solutions? Then we would like to meet you!   

To guarantee high quality data science solutions for our clients, it is essential that our state-of-the-art data science solutions, remain in the top segment of the market. This means that we need to continuously evaluate and improve our technology and solutions. Do you want to advance the technology behind our solutions in a topic that is relevant for one of our impressive retail or insurance clients? Then you are the intern we are looking for!

Currently, we have the following topics available:

  • Optimize recommendations: For our clients it is very important to offer the right personalized content to their customers to increase relevance and conversions. Classical recommendation systems give user-product combinations, ranked (not quantified yet) only on the likeliness that the user is interested in the product. This is already very valuable, however it becomes epic when business goals can be incorporated in these optimizations. It is your challenge to create an algorithm that optimizes recommendations according to our client’s business goals. Not only on likeliness to buy as in a classic recommendations system, but on other criteria such as profit or revenue.
  • Price elasticity: The retail market is very transparent and competition is fierce, therefore it is very important to make a competitive offer in terms of price. However, the consumer’s reaction to price changes and differences is not the same for every product. For some products consumers do not respond to price changes whereas demand for other products is much more sensitive to price changes. Are you able to create the algorithm which predicts the demand of products on any price point, given the price of the competition and optimize the market position for our clients?
