Data Quality Analyst

Are you interested in data analysis for practical applications? Do you have a large intellectual curiosity and an eye for detail? Do you know the 80/20 rule and how to set priorities? Are you slightly nuts about keeping things in order? Are you a self starter who likes taking ownership and initiative?
If so, we are looking for you!

Textkernel’s business is simple: make more and better matches between people and jobs. How? Utilizing state of the art machine intelligence techniques coupled with a talented and ambitious team. We have long outgrown our start-up phase but we did not let go of the spirit. Our dynamically growing company is currently servicing thousands of clients worldwide, processing hundreds of millions of jobs, CVs and queries per year, yet we all influence the products and enjoy taking ownership of our work.
