    • A Masters or a PhD in Computer Science or in a quantitative discipline (such as Statistics, Mathematics etc.) combined with very strong programming skills
    • Multiple years of hands-on experience in the development of complex data science products in the context of an online business (ideally recommendation engines for streaming services)

    • Strong programming skills (e.g. in Python, Scala or Node.js) and experience with a big data framework (such as Spark, Storm, Flink, Hive)
    • Machine learning and statistics skills: a very good understanding of the foundations and ideally a deep knowledge of concepts relevant to recommendation engines
