Are you a quantitative analyst with interest in the societal impact of data? Do you want to contribute to building resilience against disinformation and online manipulation? And would you feel energised by working in a scale up company where there is room for pioneering? Then we are looking for you!

Your impact

You will create insights that are based on data analysis and report on topics, trends and threats in online spaces. This lets journalists uncover the truth, scientists gain valuable insights, and organisations keep their team safe from disinformation campaigns. You will contribute to making people, organisations and governments more resilient to online manipulation.

Job content

As a data analyst you will continuously analyse real-time data from social media platforms. By using custom built data scrapers and machine learning with every project, we process large amounts of data and derive patterns into highly coordinated communities, narratives and quantifiable markers of disinformation techniques. This enables you, as an analyst, to focus your time on performing deeper analyses on suspicious content, that you will translate into valuable insights for our customers.

The team

You will work closely with other analysts and our tech team (focusing on artificial intelligence and machine learning) to continuously improve the tools we use and the insights we can offer our clients. You will be part of our growing and vibrant organisation with all kinds of people eager to contribute to society.

  • Innovative mindset to further develop Tilt’s Insights tools
  • Team player & self starter
  • Master degree (Data Sciences and having affinity for societal impact of data or Social Sciences and having affinity for quantitative analysis)
