We are now looking for an experienced Data Scientist. Actually. You can call yourself Data Analyst, Data Guru, Analytics Enthusiast or Easter Bunny if you like, the thing is: we have data and you are good at data.
How you will make an impact

Within the Music domain, you will work directly with metadata and performance KPIs connected to our music.

You are comfortable working with data modeling, predictive modeling, exploratory analyses and driving your own research questions, aligned with the business strategy and growth opportunities. In this role, you will play a key role in strengthening the analytical capabilities of the team. You will collaborate with Analysts embedded in various teams/departments and make sure we have a holistic view of our business areas. Furthermore, you drive improvements in how we work with data, the tools we use, and how we can improve our data assets to maximize productivity.
