Vacancy Consultant Data Science at Steward Redqueen

The firm

Steward Redqueen is a consultancy firm with the mission to make business work for society. We develop strategies and tools to enable our clients to understand and manage their impact.

For our work we rely on four core competencies:

  • Quantitative and qualitative analysis of complex problems;
  • Implementation of sustainability and impact in operational processes or strategies;
  • Building capacity among (financial) institutions on sustainability;
  • Development of software tools to enable efficient management of sustainability and impact.

Our clients vary from multinationals such as Heineken and Coca-Cola, financial institutions such as Standard Chartered and the World Bank, to societal organizations such as the Dutch Council for Refugees or DOEN Foundation. We have an increasing focus on data science solutions for our clients.

The function

As a Consultant Data Science you combine sustainability, business and IT to bring our clients new insights based on (big) data. At first your activities will be focused on supporting consultants in existing projects, ranging from data collection, analysis to visualisation. This will help you familiarize with our current way of working and the existing software, tools and dashboards we use. Gradually, your focus will shift to the design and development of new models, tools and dashboards for our clients. Will you build a model to predict sustainable client behavior? Will you find patterns in data sets to show the link between sustainability and financial performance? This is where you combine your passion for sustainability with your technical skills to develop solutions for societal problems.

The working environment

Working at Steward Redqueen means being a part of an energetic and passionate team. We steer a working environment which is:

  • Dynamic, as consultants work together on several projects at a time;
  • Flat, as we value everyone’s opinion and encourage constructive criticism;
  • Collaborative, as we work with colleagues and clients from diverse cultural backgrounds.

Last but not least, we aim to help all our consultants grow in their careers. We will support you in drawing your own career development plan, and will provide the resources you need to implement it.
