Would you like to test your skills within data science? Then you might be the new Data Science Intern we are looking for!

As our new intern, you’ll become part of the Data Science team which consists of four full time data scientists and machine learning engineers and two interns. The Data Science team is within Global IT and is working very closely together with colleagues from across company.

Data Science at heart
During your internship you will take part in our daily work alongside our machine learning engineers and data scientists. You will be supporting the development and deployment of data science products.

This includes supporting and conducting all parts of the model creation and deployment life cycle:

  • Data preparation
  • Feature engineering

  • Code, model testing and review
  • Model deployment and monitoring.

This is a great opportunity to gain real, hands-on experience with data science tools and processes. Our model development is in python and is utilizing open-source technology. The infrastructure stack we use is Azure Cloud and thus our Data Science Lab is built in Azure ML, with Power BI as a frontend tool for deployed applications.

There will be plenty of additional learning and networking opportunities too as our team works cross-functionally with a variety of business stakeholders. Likewise, you will get to work in a great team with a variety of different backgrounds providing good opportunities to learn and grow.

Want to use your programming experience?
We look for exceptional people with a variety of academic backgrounds such as software engineering, computer science, mathematics or related fields from colleges and universities all around Denmark.
The most important thing is that you have:

  • Excellent quantitative and analytics skills
  • Ability to learn new technologies and evaluate multiple technologies to solve a problem
  • Experience with a programming language suited for data science (preferably python or R)
  • Ability to work quickly with an eye towards writing clean code that is efficient, testable, and reusable
  • Eager to take on new challenges and opportunities
  • Experience in data science is desired but not mandatory

Relevant experience from e.g., student jobs or volunteering will be an advantage, but most important is that you have a great willingness to learn.
