""The quarterly team rotation during the trainee programme gave me insights into different industries and projects with different analytical challenges. In addition to the daily data science experience in the projects, I was able to further my education once a week with the other trainees on a trainee project of my own choice."

From the everyday life of a Data Science Trainee


"After my studies, I am now completing the Data Science Trainee Programme at Alexander Thamm GmbH. The professional life of a trainee is instructive, innovative and exciting - especially thanks to the many interesting but also challenging projects.

During the trainee programme, I always have an experienced Data Scientist at my side who passes on his project, customer and methodological knowledge. As a trainee, I am introduced step by step to the tasks of a data scientist.

Besides various data modelling and visualisation tools, I also learn their scripting language. Classic project management and basic knowledge of programming are also an integral part. What should you bring with you as a trainee? A good analytical understanding, enjoyment of statistics programmes and, of course, enthusiasm for data.

As a trainee, I learn everything about project management, business analytics and data science, Big Data and predictive analytics - quickly and in a great working environment at an innovative company."

"The trainee programme enabled me to quickly develop professionally by working on different data science projects. The trust of colleagues and superiors gave me the opportunity to take on responsibility early on in order to develop my own solutions and help our customers."

- Johannes, Data Scientist
