Christopher - From criminal defense attorney to Software Tester

"Although I grew up in Silicon Valley in California and thus have an affinity for both software and hardware, my background is quite diverse for the work that I am currently performing. Over the years, I have worked as a hardware tester, English teacher, a Criminal defense attorney and in civil litigation. I received my Bachelors with a double major in Japanese language and literature as well as East Asian Studies in Washington D.C. I also studied in Japan and went to law school in Hawaii. While I am not fluent in any programming languages, I did study a few over the years and am not intimidated when it comes to small tasks like JSON file modification or changing a small snippet of code"

Philip - From Graduate Student Assistant to Analytical Consultant & Data Scientist

"Given my background in Econometrics with a specialization in Quantitative Marketing and Business Analytics at Erasmus, I was looking for a job in which I could directly apply my knowledge from university as well as continue to develop my knowledge in Machine Learning and general coding skills. Pointlogic was able to offer me a position where I can combine the best of both worlds, as I am currently 50% active as an Analytical Consultant and spend the rest of my time working as a Data Scientist. I would say it is an exciting time to join the company now. Since the entire company is growing, you will inevitably grow with it. After the acquisition by Nielsen (over 40,000 employees worldwide!), there has been a great influx of new and exciting clients, as well as many other business opportunities."

Eni - A Market Implementation Manager with multiple talents 

"Since September 2016, I am one of the three Market Implementation Managers from Pointlogic. Before moving to the Netherlands for my Masters studies, I have lived and studied in the UK. Pointlogic is a good place to grow because of the good mentoring and the training offered. You have the possibility to tailor your job based on your personal goals of self-improvement and, thanks to the work diversity, you can always gain new skills.

Pointlogic equals an open working environment – we have flexible desks and the possibility to work from home, which breaks the usual work monotony. Seeing the fact that it is an international environment, you are in constant contact with people from different backgrounds, cultures and professions. In addition, even if I have a great sense of independence, people that surround me are a real support on the professional level, but also on the personal level."

Robbert - Client Services Associate

"I started working at Pointlogic as Client Services Associate in June 2016. Clients can reach out to me with inquires regarding installation, registration or usage of our software products. Furthermore, I act as an intermediary between clients, Software Development Department and Analytical Consultants, making sure that our clients receive excellent service and support. As soon as I started working here, I noticed that personal development and ideas ownership are very much encouraged. If you have a good idea and you are able to convince stakeholders of its importance, the implementation will follow shortly. Obviously this stimulates employees' own initiative and growth. I love working at Pointlogic because of its positive, open and energetic working atmosphere. Of course, flexible working hours and location are very much appreciated and my personal favorite – the standing desk – is a big plus.  
When I am not making clients happy at Pointlogic, I enjoy lifting heavy objects in the gym, I occasionally go to a football match and I travel as much as possible. In addition, I enjoy painting, and I have FC Dordrecht as inspiration for my paintings. Interesting fact: original Bouwsma's can be found in California, USA." 

Jacolien - From Analytical Consultant to Data Scientist

"I have a background in Applied Mathematics at the University of Twente and from 2006 I was an Analytical Consultant. After 10 years of working on a great variety of clients, but with a single product focus, I decided to switch my role and since October 2016 I’ve joined the data science team doing a mix of project management and data science work.

Pointlogic is a good place to grow because there are so many things to do and projects to be part of. If you have specific interests, the management will support you and will try to facilitate that. In addition, I like also my colleagues – even if we are growing so fast in the last time, I still have the feeling of a family. People are working together to make good products, not for their personal success. That’s because the work itself its rewarding enough, so people don’t need to be in the spotlight."

Juri - from Delphi to .NET

Juri is Lead Software Developer for two Pointlogic products: Commspoint and Brandpoint positioning."I started working at Pointlogic 8 years ago, in the period when we were using Delphi instead of .NET. This sounds like ages ago, but if you see our Commspoint today, you’ll understand how much things changed around here! I like working at Pointlogic because it is an open, casual company, with no fancy bureaucracy – all developers have a common goal: creating the best solutions for our clients, while allowing each other to have the spotlight from time to time. There is room for saying your opinion out loud and you can plan your own time (Pointlogic has flexible working hours, flex-desk policy and you can work from home when needed)."

Melanie - From student-assistant to Project Manager

' I joined Pointlogic as a student-assistant in 2007, when I was about to start my masters in Econometrics. After writing my thesis at Pointlogic, I’ve joined the company full-time, as an Analytical Consultant. Back then, I was working on projects that involved econometric modeling, both for Dutch and international clients. Besides the focus on econometrics, I’ve learned about the Media and Marketing field, working with clients and translating analytical results into easy-to-understand recommendations. A few years later, I was given the opportunity to join our newly-founded office in Singapore, where, for 2 years, I’ve closely worked with clients - which was a great professional and personal experience. Since moving back to The Netherlands, I mainly focus on project management and I’m also partially responsible for our modeling team'.

Do you combine a strong analytical background with management skills and affinity with media and marketing? Then become our new Project Manager Marketing Analytics. Apply here. 

Jelle & Marijtje - From Econometrics students to Analytical Consultants

'If you are interested in Media in combination with Econometrics and looking for a great place to write your thesis, work as a student or start your career you should definitely come by and see what we have to offer. You will work in a young and fun team, on exciting projects for very cool clients. This is why I decided to stay at Pointlogic after my thesis and am still having a lot of fun, as full-time analytical consultant!' - Jelle

'What I mostly liked about writing my thesis at Pointlogic was the relevance of my thesis topic to the company. I worked with real data, and the results of my thesis provided useful insights for the company that can actually be used for future projects. Furthermore, I did not have much experience with Bayesian modeling before I started writing my thesis, nor did I have any experience with multi-level modeling and Variational Bayes. This was no problem at all, because an excellent thesis supervisor at Pointlogic guided me, and I feel like I’ve really learned a lot here.' - Marijtje

Join our Analytical Consultants team, we have more than one job opening at this moment.
