Over de functie

As one of the biggest recruitment organizations in the world, Randstad Groep Nederland is constantly improving its business and processes. Data, AI, and you as a Machine Learning Engineer, are therefore indispensible! 

Randstad, Yacht and Tempo-Team have access to vast amounts of data between them. Over two billion records: the attributes of millions of candidates, and data belonging to clients, potential candidates and our own organization. A treasure trove of information that our Data Scientists continuously explore to improve our business! But we are nothing without Machine Learning Engineers. Because you know how to unlock that data and bring a complicated model into production. Isn’t it great that you can help Randstad Groep Nederland make important inroads in the world of work? 

We are looking for a medior Machine Learning Engineer who knows how to take a wide variety of data and AI driven models into production. You will use this experience to guide data scientists and data engineers in Randstad’s data science capability towards developing production-ready and scalable AI applications. Therefore, at least 3 years of relevant professional experience are required. Your responsibility includes testing, deploying and scaling of data science models as well as challenging data scientists on their solution and improving their quality of code. For this, you will need to feel at home at the intersection between data science and software development.


You may come from a science background or have experience in an environment driven by scientific methodology. You know your machine learning and statistics and can apply your skills to solve real world problems. Most importantly, you are a good communicator and are able to explain complex problems and engineering challenges to your junior colleagues.

General knowledge required:

  • software engineering
  • bonus: A/B testing
  • cloud platform engineering
  • CI/CD
  • DevOps
  • data engineering
  • data structures and formats
  • machine learning
  • testing (TDD)

 Tool experience includes:

  • analysis tools like Python / Pandas / Spark / Scikit-Learn / Keras
  • relational and NoSQL databases
  • linux, bash scripting and Git
  • containerization tools like Docker
  • ETL orchestration tools like Airflow
  • AWS 
  • bonus: other cloud platforms


At our head office in Diemen, where over 150 IT professionals work and experiment with new technology all day. You will work in one of the 24 DevOps teams, but by no means in a silo. Because thanks to our agile mindset, numerous tribes - as we call them – work together on the same product or service. This makes for interesting cross-pollination between colleagues from all kinds of teams and disciplines within the IT department and beyond! You are given a great deal of freedom to organize your work yourself. Our teams are diverse and – for an IT department – boast a relatively high number of women (over 30%). We’re quite proud of this because we know that the more diverse the teams, the better the results. 

What we offer you

  • a soft landing with wonderful, inspirational colleagues who support you 
  • a gross monthly salary of between € 3250.- and €4500- (depending on your work experience)
  • 25 days annual leave and 8.5% holiday pay
  • lots of training and development opportunities within Randstad Groep Nederland
  • good mobility scheme and laptop
  • generous monthly benefit-budget that you can redeem for days off or a bicycle, tablet, sports subscription, or study course
  • generous bonus scheme, plus the opportunity to earn a performance bonus twice a year
