Anintroduction to Artificial Intelligence & Analytics (AIA)

AIA is one of the world’s biggest BI practices (20.000+ colleagues) and well known for its ability to execute, thought leadership and client focus.

We have a broad range of experience in different functional areas like Customer Analytics, Visualization, Big Data, Data warehouse design, Data modelling and others.

Your role as Junior Data Scientist

You love mathematics and statistics, are interested in applying those models to business problems, and data doesn’t scare you?

Then this job is what you want. As a junior data scientist, you will be responsible for working in a team that can cover the whole life cycle of data science engagement : from defining the objectives, to doing an exploratory analysis of the data, to choosing and implementing the final statistical / machine learning / artificial intelligence models, to advising customers based on the findings using visual storytelling techniques, and finally monitoring and tuning the accuracy of those models.

Personal development

Prior to starting your first client engagement, you will attend a three weeks induction program for graduates abroad to ensure you have a solid understanding of Cognizant’s culture and processes.

You will have the opportunity for further training by our own Academy to help you achieve your long-term career goals, like working with different cultures, requirement gathering, project management, agile development and many more.

After the three weeks induction you will spend up to 3 months learning new statistical or machine learning techniques and relevant software.

During that time you will also be working on customer cases, directly applying the knowledge you have learned. Next to that you get the opportunity to cross train yourself in multiple other subjects (e.

g. reporting / dashboarding, big data, etc ) depending on your personal interests.

The induction program normally starts in February, June and October. These are also the moments when you will start with Cognizant.
