What do we do?
We help our customers in making the right decisions by using sophisticated proprietary techniques as analysis of customer in-house data, applying higher order statistical models & methods, machine learning algorithms, information retrieval systems, natural language processing, building data engines, and end-to-end customer management systems. If required we also collect the ‘new data’ they need for decision-making. On the data gathering side we apply classical market research methods, use digital data collection techniques, build standard monitors, make qualitative observations and program web-crawlers. We have recently identified ‘open data’ as one of our main future fields of work. In our core we are a technology-driven data science company – with a definite human touch.

Project Managers (4 positions)
In close collaboration with Mrutyunjay Mishra, our co-founder, you will manage ongoing projects and new initiatives. Your role is a mix of
– project and key account management, and
– business development.
We are looking for a “hunter” kind of person, one who makes sure that our co-founder is organized, on time and follows up on his schedule. You should be pleasantly persuasive and efficient – someone who simply gets things done without undue fuss. You should be passionate, enthusiastic and be able to think on your own and take the initiative without expecting orders. This includes always being up to speed on what is going on in our project ecosystem. As an outgoing person you should be active in social media, specifically in professional networks and micro blogging. It would also be most welcome if you have an interest in liberal and contemporary art forms.
Prior work experience is not a must for this position but experience of at least two or three years in advertising, media (internet/print/broadcast), market research, analytics, consulting or software development would be of benefit.
You will manage our internal and external branding which includes our website, our social media platforms and our community newsletter. Your responsibilities will also include managing our existing media/press relations and taking them to new heights.
You should be a gifted writer – in particular you should possess a talent for translating data into stories. Naturally, the entire team will support you in this – but you should definitely not be afraid of data and spreadsheets. Fluency in written and spoken English is of the essence and it would also be of benefit if you have interest in design and liberal/contemporary art forms. You should be open to exploring graphic creation tools and working with design agencies and other partners. From time to time your role will require you to compile focused and sharp PP and prezi presentations. If you meet the above requirements and if you are organised, diligent, punctual and conscientious in your work, we would very much like to meet you.
Prior work experience is not essential but experience of at least one year in content writing, PR, or corporate communications would be warmly greeted.
