At the Royal Schiphol Group, we have established a Data, AI & Analytics department (DnA), tasked with accelerating our group-wide transition to a truly data-driven organization.

You will work on a great diversity of datasets and data problems.
To give you an idea:

  • Use occupancy and queuing data to gain more insight in the check-in process and hence prevent dangerous situations in the light of Covid-19;
  • Analyse data from the aircraft docking processes to identify process inefficiencies;

Many of the use-cases you’ll work on have a direct effect on the Airport and its passengers and when you look out of the window from your workplace, you’ll see your work in action.

As a Senior Data Analyst, you will work closely with business stakeholders and the team of Data Scientists and Data Analysts to:

  • Understand the business and the levers they can turn to optimize their processes; in your conversations with the business you help formulating the most relevant business- and analysis questions;
  • Lead a project team and coach team members to develop and deliver analyses and insights; set up plans for your projects and manage day-to-day progress;
  • Select the best data sets from a variety of complex data sources ranging from radar data to IoT sensors in the terminal; support in making data available and set requirements;
  • Create insight for the business, advice on next steps and uncover new possibilities based on your analyses.
