#1 of 7Catawiki, Amsterdam, ONSITE, VISA, Full Time
Data Scientist - Fastest Growing Tech company in Europe. Catawiki hosts weekly auctions for collectors. Examples of past items we have auctioned off include a lock of Napoleon’s hair, a mammoth skeleton, various large meteorites, and the most expensive Lego set ever produced. In 2015, Catawiki won the Deloitte Fast500 as Europe’s fastest growing company. Every month, our website is visited millions of times by registered users worldwide.
Catawiki is looking for a Data Scientist to join its Data Science team. You will be responsible for performing advanced modeling and forecasting on a wide range of problems.
Catawiki is not a standard e-commerce company. Our data is fairly unique, because we have very high item churn. This results from the fact that we auction off rare and unique items run on a weekly basis, so we don’t have long timelines to accumulate data on items. Therefore, out-of-the-box techniques like CF recommender systems won’t work and you’ll have to get creative. In addition, there is a lot of value that can be created by enhancing our auctioneer productivity with machine learning techniques, for instance by ranking item supply on their expected closing price.

#6 of 7Booking.com - https://booking.com - Amsterdam, Netherlands | Full time | On-site only.
Full-time, relocation to Amsterdam, (H1B or its dutch equivalent anyway) is taken care of by the company.
I work at Booking.com, which is a world leader in travel accommodations, as a backend developer. I have only positive things to say about working here. The people are intelligent and helpful, a lot of interesting problems to solve and the work hours are unbelievably sane. The company is strongly data driven and very dynamic, which was one of its biggest charms for me. Amsterdam is not a bad place to be either :) The Dutch government also gives a huge tax break through the 30% ruling to non-dutch people.
The work environment is very international and everybody speaks fluent English. The relocation process is also very finely tuned.They take care of you from the moment you get an offer to the point you have set up your house in Amsterdam. Several people have reached out to me from these threads and have been flown to Amsterdam for interviews. Around 10 people have been given offers and more are in the middle of the interview process.
If you have any other questions about the company or the hiring process or you would like me to refer you, please feel free to send me an email at siddharthsarda01 at gmail.com (Email also in my profile at Hacker news).

#7 of 7Android Engineer at Polarsteps (talented all-rounders are welcome too) | Amsterdam, NL | Onsite, relocation within EU
TL;DR: want to have fun working for an awesome travel startup? -> max at polarsteps dot com
Join our journey! We're a young startup building a beautiful and easy to use travel tracker/journal, which will eventually become THE platform for planning, tracking and remembering your trips. We believe that the current online travel ecosystem is utterly fragmented (did you know the average traveller visits 40+ sites to book a trip?) and we are on a mission to fix that.
The first version of our product has been live on the web and iOS since April 2015 and with 0€ spent on marketing/user acquisition we’ve already attracted over 20K users. Together they logged over 3 million locations using the Polarsteps iPhone app (you can check out the 5 month adventure all the way from northern Europe to the southernmost point of Africa by one of our founders here: https://www.polarsteps.com/niek/615-amsterdam-to-cape-town-b...).
We’re a fully funded, enthusiastic and multi-faceted team of 5 with a passion for travel, design and code, and we’re looking for someone interested in leading the efforts of building the first version of our Android app from the ground up. You’ll be working closely with the rest of the team creating a super sexy travel app that people genuinely love!
===== Do you have what it takes? =====
You’re a professional and pragmatic developer with a feel for UI/UX. You love to travel and believe in data as much as you believe in user feedback. In addition to this, if you have Android experience and successfully released one or more apps in the Google Play Store then you’re the rainbow unicorn that we’ve been looking for. BTW, at this moment we can only consider you if you are eligible to work within the EU, sorry about that!
===== Benefits, perks, the cool stuff =====
Does this description (partially) apply to you? Then check out these additional perks -specially the last one ;)-, and drop me a line at max at polarsteps dot com
- Stock options!
- Competitive salary
- Work/life balance
- Relocation assistance (within the EU)
- Awesome office in the center of Amsterdam, one of the most cosmopolitan and beautiful cities in the world
- 30 vacation days (25 ‘regular’ days + 5 Teleporter™ days, see below)
- We believe that regardless of stock options and salary, what will really make you richer are your travel experiences. That is why once per year you’ll have the chance to use our Teleporter™: with the push of a button, the Teleporter™ will go through all of the locations logged by our users and select a random one that is at least 1.000km away from Amsterdam. This is where your next adventure will take place! The flight is on us (plus the 5 Teleporter™ days, naturally).
P.S.: As for our tech stack, we’re hosted in Heroku, use Amazon S3 for media storage, python (Flask) in the backend/API, AngularJS in the frontend, and we have a fully native iOS app written in Obj-C. We have single-command build&deploy tasks for production and staging, and we do automated testing with protractor on the web and appium on iOS.
