Data scientist

As a Hoxhunt Summer Hunter, you'll help us build software, models and tools that fight hackers and phishers and help keep customer data secure from external attacks. Data scientists at Hoxhunt work with large quantities of data to produce business value through data engineering and data visualization as well as combat the malicious attempts of cyber criminals with machine learning and computational methods.

To achieve these things, you will work closely with a team of data scientists in an agile and horizontal development environment. We don’t expect you to be an expert data scientist yet - our team will help you hone your existing skills and expand your toolkit even further, enabling you to become your best data-talent self. Recruitment is open 10.1.- 25.01.2022, so apply now if you’re ready for a new adventure!

Our ideal candidate is someone who loves to solve complex problems by analysing and predicting with massive amounts of data from the field of cybersecurity. Your work will directly raise awareness against phishing and cyber attacks, and in this way you will help to secure digital societies and build our product to directions where cyber attacks can be prevented better in the future.


The Summer Hunter program will last for three months from 1st of June to 30th of August, but we hope you’ll join us after the summer as a part-time or full-time data scientist depending on your studies. The timing is also negotiable if that exact slot doesn’t suit you.
