A Mathematical playground where smart minds grow into multi-talents.

As a Trainee within the Data Science Traineeship at ORTEC you will be part of a unique organization and team, pioneering in the field of Data Science!

You have just finished your master’s degree, maybe even taken some time off, and you’re finally getting around to looking for a job. As an ambitious problem-solver, you never want to stop learning. However, at the same time, you want to put into practice what you have learned so far.

At ORTEC we know how to create value out of data using a proven approach and the latest tools and technologies. Since 1981 we improve business decisions by leveraging data and providing decision support models for many industry leading companies. No big studies and reports, but tangible, scalable and sustainable results. Our people are data-driven at heart and are eager to turn their broad expertise into concrete value. Making an impact by leveraging the value out of the data is what makes ORTEC the go-to-company.

Having delivered state-of-the-art data-oriented solutions, products and tools for more than 37 years, we know how to deliver impact and business value with scalable Data Science together with our clients. We are experienced in areas such as: Predictive maintenance and asset management, Operations and Supply Chain Analytics, HR & Customer Analytics in markets like Retail, Energy, Transport, Post and Parcel, Finance and Insurance, Travel and Leisure. This has led to valued strategic partnerships with parties such as FedEx / TNT, AirFrance-KLM, Dutch Railways, Coca-Cola, Brussels Airport and Walmart.

You as a trainee

During your traineeship, you will be given responsibility early on. You will get the opportunity to acquire more self-knowledge, to develop your passions, and to find out what kind of projects and industries suit your ambitions. The best thing about this is that you are in charge, you decide on which areas you want to advance in.

As a Data Science trainee you gain your energy to work on projects like programming a machine learning model that predicts how many customers will leave a certain insurance company. You will be fully involved in one of our market-oriented teams, to have the opportunity to really make impact in your market(s) and have the benefits of a team by learning from each other and joining social activities. Next to that, as trainee, you also have the advantage of getting some experiences in markets out of the focus area of your team.

As a trainee, you will be mentored by experienced colleagues. Our hands-on training will give you the skills required for the various roles you will play in the various types of projects (i.e. from analytics to optimization, from proof of concept to support). In terms of building your soft-skills, we also provide courses to improve your communication skills, to teach you how to work on projects more efficiently, to improve on your time management, and to build your commercial skills.
