    • Collaborate closely with Directors of Product, Engineering and Design to drive the analytics roadmap and long-term strategy with quarterly milestones 
    • Drive the usage of advanced analytics techniques in the company

About you:

    • Proven experience as a Data Scientist or similar role (5+ years)
    • Ability to understand, translate and map strategic priorities into analytical projects
    • Outstanding communication skills with both technical and non-technical colleagues
    • Proven track record of team mentorship and technical leadership (2+ years)
    • Some experience in hiring team members
    • Hands-on experience with scripting in Python, R, or Scala
    • A vision for what Data Science can and should be, as well as the ability to work with internal stakeholders to execute on that vision
    • Master’s degree in Applied Mathematics, Data Science, Computer Science, Econometrics, Statistics, Business, or any other related field – alternatively, an equivalent level of relevant work experience would also be acceptable
    • Experience in a tech company would be an advantage

Work perks:

    • Opportunity to join our stock options programme
    • Learning budget (13.2% from your annual net salary)
    • 25 working days of holiday
    • Daily breakfast and lunch at Vinted Noise restaurant
    • Monthly team-building events
    • In-house gym
    • A personal budget for shopping on Vinted
