FULL-TIME · AMSTERDAM

Every day, millions of people rely on WeTransfer to share their creative ideas. So, the work we do matters. Come and be a part of it. 

We are looking for a Data Scientist who can be creative with deriving insights from data.  

Our approach to growth & analytics

WeTransfer is used by millions every day - from our moms to your favourite artists. The quest, to design simple tools to a wide variety of people, comes with a lot of decisions. Should we develop bigger file transfer sizes or rather build an integration for a designer tool? From our website to mobile applications till our content platform, we are challenged with new questions each day. It is our responsibility to fill the gaps with quantitative research and experimentation to shape the future of our products.

Designing experiments for millions of users every day
