How do you make our customers happy?

At bol.com we run hundreds of experiments per year and our ambition is to scale up to thousands of experiments per year. Experiments are executed by product teams within the organization. As Team Experimentation we support those teams in every step in their experimentation journey. Our mission is to make it ridiculously easy for everyone within bol.com to run experiments.

Bol.com is like a candy store regarding data. On the webshop/app we have millions of visitors per day, but we also have services and processes in place with less data points, which we want to improve. We are looking for an expert who will contribute to transform this data into knowledge to be used by whole bol.com. Are you a data-expert with an entrepreneurial mindset? Then we want to welcome you to our team!


Your responsibilities as a Data Analyst within Team Experimentation

  • Advise teams about the right metrics to use and the right way to retrieve the values of those metrics from our data sets.
  • Advise teams about the right method for analyzing their experiments.
  • Challenge teams in their experiment approach; if they ask you a question, be sure that they ask you the right question.
  • Contribute to the team when it comes to maintaining and developing our automated calculations, like running time estimations and hypothesis tests.
  • Think along with teams that do not have the ability to do an A/B-test in how they can validate the impact of their changes. For example support them in their data-analysis of a quasi-experiment (eg. before/after analysis).
