Team-player & enabler: you communicate accurately and with a view to enabling the people you work with to perform at their best. You love an international environment.

Hands-on & passion to learn: you have advanced coding skills (preferably in Python or R) and data wrangling capabilities (database handling; experience with handling geodata formats is considered as a plus) that you are willing to apply and will pick up the knowledge and know-how you need in order to get 'it' done.
