Are you passionate about building scalable solutions for big companies such as Heineken and VodafoneZiggo? As an MLOps Engineer, with a great infrastructure, you can produce great machine learning models at our client who is a leading Data Science consultancy based in Utrecht.

This isn’t the standard detachering model – this is a boutique company focusing on Data Science, Data engineering and ML tech that truly cares about its employees, empowering them to push their boundaries by focusing on their personal development. For their clients, we focus on creating business value with innovative data solutions that have sustainable impact.


What you do:

As an MLOps Engineer you:

  • write infrastructure-as-code to build a Kubernetes cluster from scratch,
  • create a fully-fledged data science laboratory environment with Terraform or design and deploy CI/CD pipelines.
  • know what goes on in the mind of a data scientist. On some projects, you will assist them in bringing their applications to production, while on other projects you might set up an Airflow cluster to run their batch jobs.


A lot of their clients work with the latest tech, whether it’s Tensorflow (including TF Serving/TFX), Seldon Core or Kubeflow. You will also work extensively with cloud technology on AWS, Azure, Google Cloud or a private cloud environment.
