For a better working life

Data Scientist (m/f)

XING is the social network for business professionals with millions of members all over the world. Help us shape the future – for a better working life! We currently have an opening at our headquarters in Hamburg and Barcelona.

Our Data Science team is responsible for turning data into services and products for XING. Around 20 Data scientists, architects and engineers work together to create highly scalable solutions that serve millions of users. We bring state-of-the-art algorithms into production by making use of technologies such as Hadoop (e.g. Hive, Spark), Akka, Kafka, Cassandra, elasticsearch, etc. At the moment, we are forming a new sub-team that aims at enriching XING’s data graph and developing new data services. For this new sub-team, we are seeking a Data Scientist who helps with data cleaning, designing algorithms/models and implementing these algorithms/models into production services. If you want to get things done rather than sit in meetings, like helping others and learning from them, you will have fun in our team!

A challenging task

  • Solve challenging problems in the context of data cleaning, data mining and machine learning
  • Perform analyses on massive amounts of data and build scalable machine learning models and algorithms
  • Implement and enhance algorithms and services using technologies such as Scala, elasticsearch, and Hadoop technologies (e.g. Hive, MapReduce)

A convincing background

  • MSc or higher degree in Computer Science, Math or similar discipline
  • Hands-on experience in exploring large datasets (e.g. with Hive, R, Python, etc.) and creating machine learning models
  • Solid programming skills (preferably also in Scala/Java)
  • Experience in implementing scalable models and algorithms that process large datasets and are used in production services
  • Theoretical and practical knowledge about text processing, information retrieval or machine learning
  • Proficient English language skills (German is not required)

An inspiring environment

XING offers a dynamic environment located in the centre of Hamburg. As well as flexible working hours, you’ll have an opportunity to unleash your skills and acquire new ones. We offer a wide range of training courses in addition to German, English and Spanish lessons, regular team and offsite events, and lots of fun. We also provide free drinks and organic fruit as well as a Proficard public transport ticket, restaurant vouchers and travel insurance. And let’s not forget the smartphone or iPad that you can use privately. You’ll also be provided with a high-end Macbook Pro, and our offices have table football tables. If you’re feeling really sporty, we also have great gym deals, and various other benefits….

If this profile matches your expertise, experience and aspirations, we’d be delighted to receive your full application, including salary requirements and possible starting date.

We're an Open Source contributor (https://github.com/xing) and let the world know what we're doing (https://medium.com/xing-engineering) while also organising public user groups and coding events.
