As one of the biggest recruitment organisations in the world, Randstad Groep Nederland is constantly improving its business and processes. Data, AI, and you as a Machine Learning Engineer, are therefore indispensible! 

Randstad, Yacht and Tempo-Team have access to vast amounts of data between them. Over two billion records: the attributes of millions of candidates, and data belonging to clients, potential candidates and our own organisation. A treasure trove of information that our Data Scientists continuously explore to improve our business! But we are nothing without Machine Learning Engineers. Because you know how to unlock that data and bring a complicated model into production. Isn’t it great that you can help Randstad Groep Nederland make important inroads in the world of work? 

 What will you be doing?
We are looking for an experienced Machine Learning Engineer who knows how to take a wide variety of data and AI driven models into production. You will use this experience to guide Data Scientists and Data Engineers in Randstad’s data science capability towards developing production-ready and scalable AI applications. Therefore, at least 3 years of relevant professional experience are required. Your responsibility includes testing, deploying and scaling of data science models as well as challenging data scientists on their solution and improving their quality of code. For this, you will need to feel at home at the intersection between data science and software development. 

 Where will you be working?
At our head office in Diemen, where over 150 IT professionals work and experiment with new technology all day. You will work in one of the 24 DevOps teams, but by no means in a silo. Because thanks to our agile mindset, numerous tribes - as we call them – work together on the same product or service. This makes for interesting cross-pollination between colleagues from all kinds of teams and disciplines within the IT department and beyond! You are given a great deal of freedom to organise your work yourself. Our teams are diverse and – for an IT department – boast a relatively high number of women (over 30%). We’re quite proud of this, because we know that the more diverse the teams, the better the results. 

 With whom will you be working?

Requests and projects from the organisation end up on your desk via your product owner. In addition, you work with individual end users. These include business and finance analysts, marketers, staffing consultants, sales consultants and the management team. It all depends on what the data and product you are working on. You also collaborate closely with the developers in your team, infrastructure specialists and data scientists from your own and other development teams.

 In addition to your project team, you will be part of a virtual team with other Machine Learning Engineers, Data Scientists and Data Engineers that spans across product teams and company divisions. This team is called a Chapter and serves only one goal which is to improve your craftsmanship. Be prepared for continuous knowledge sharing, peer review and fun colleagues that, just like you, are eager to learn more! 

 About you

You may come from a software background or have experience in an environment driven by data and technology. You know your machine learning and you can productionize smart models to solve real world problems. Most importantly, you are a good communicator and are able to explain complex problems and engineering challenges to your junior colleagues.

 Technical knowledge required:

  • software engineering

  • scripting languages

  • testing (possibly: Test-Driven Development)

  • machine learning

  • data structures and formats

  • data engineering

  • DevOps

  • CI/CD

  • cloud platform engineering

  • bonus: A/B testing

 Tool experience includes:

  • analysis tools like Python / Pandas / Spark / Scikit-Learn / Keras

  • relational and NoSQL databases

  • linux, bash scripting and Git

  • containerization tools like Docker

  • ETL orchestration tools like Airflow

  • AWS 

  • bonus: other cloud platforms
