Data Science student job

Are you a Computer/Data Science/AI student, do you have an affinity for web development, a passion for data and technology and are you interested in the real estate world? Then we are looking for you!

Who are we?

ValueMetrics is a progressive, young and enthusiastic organization that guides housing corporations in their task as stewards of the social housing stock in the Netherlands.

We are intrinsically motivated, productive and take responsibility. We work with short lines, like to change gear quickly, pursue ideas and have a result-oriented ‘can-do’ mentality. We work from our core competencies and with a clear focus, but always have knowledge of one of the other areas within the company as well. In this way we stimulate our personal growth and are able to work together intensively. We combine this commitment with a relaxed culture, where motivation, ideas and results are valued more than years of experience, status or job title

What do we do?

We help housing associations make the best real estate decisions for the future. We support our advice and guidance with data (analysis) to facilitate smart, efficient and future-oriented decision-making by housing corporations. ValueMetrics’ services, products and applications are primarily aimed at ‘connection’, because we believe that knowledge exchange and transparency are necessary aspects for the housing corporation sector. We support corporations with their asset management and valuation challenges. We do this by developing software and benchmarks, by organizing knowledge exchange platforms and by giving advice. Our software products are available through the SaaS platform Valuemetrics Portal and contain the actual data of over one million rental properties in the Netherlands, supplemented with demographic and geographical (open) data

What will you do?

Your focus will be on developing on the Python applications we build in-house. These include applications for photo recognition, advanced mathematical models, data integration and web scraping. We combine Python with our ‘extensions’, web applications that we program ourselves in Node.js and other components (from e.g. Tableau and SQL Server) to create SaaS solutions for our customers. You will have ample opportunity to gain knowledge of the various tools and languages, so that you can work on a variety of projects. In the execution of your tasks you will be given a high degree of responsibility and autonomy, in which you will be well coached by an experienced colleague.
