Who is Nielsen?
Nielsen is a leading global information & measurement company and provides market research, insights & data about what people watch & listen to. In 2016 Nielsen acquired the Rotterdam-based company Pointlogic, in order to strengthen its data and planning capabilities, co-joiningd forces for broader commercial exposure, access to data and talent. Our products are backed by powerful analytical methods, extensive research and (big) data to enhance and enrich our clients' marketing tools and processes.
The combination of software and analytics allows our clients to make more informed strategic and tactical business decisions, ultimately leading to greater ROI from marketing budgets. We have product users in more than 80 countries around the globe, and with our tools, we support the decisions of large advertisers, media owners and media agencies, both on a tactical and strategic level.
Who are we?
Our Nielsen office is located in Rotterdam, which hosts various young and international teams, all closely working together with other Nielsen teams in the US and around the world. We are a group of 100+ (and growing) dynamic, highly educated people with backgrounds in econometrics & mathematics, software development & IT, business administration & market research.
There are several teams in Rotterdam who are always on the lookout for econometricians. One of those teams is the Data Science Project Implementation team, which consists of around 15 data scientists, half of whom have studied Econometrics at EUR Rotterdam. Our Data Science team also has 3 or 4 students every year working & writing their MSc thesis with us. During such an internship, you will work as a Junior Data Scientist in a client project team to help brands in their media evaluation using advanced statistical techniques, such as Bayesian regression modeling. Together with your project team you will translate the modeling results into insights and recommendations for the client.
