Apply? What are you going to do? Where are you working on? We ask We offer Who are your colleagues?


As a graduate you are given the space to learn and develop yourself, both personally and professionally. You are really part of the team and you can expect all the support from your colleagues. You work independently and dare to show initiative. In addition, you get the freedom and you take the responsibility to organize and carry out your research according to how you like it.


Voortman is making the next step into the future by offering our customers numerous cloud services. We're starting with insight in machine statuses, production statuses and realized production times. But next to these products we are exploring the possibilities of this cloud environment (and the data in it) to support our services department. As an organization we pride ourselves in our capabilities to support our customers throughout the lifespan of the machines we deliver. We're best in class with regard to after-sales services and we plan on staying the front-runner in our industry. We expect machine learning to be(come) a tool that will make all the difference moving forward. By leveraging the capabilities of machine learning we want to improve the partnership with our customers even more by offering them value in the form of advice or new services. The following assignments are the first concrete steps we intend to make towards using proper machine learning algorithms as we explore this new territory.

At Voortman we develop a wide range of machines that are delivered to our customers as a single unit or as production lines. Once in the field users of these machines can encounter errors or malfunctions. At the moment we're starting to send the errors that our customers encounter to the cloud and we analyse this data to determine how many times different types of errors occur. Furthermore, to be able to prevent these errors we want to get insight in what factors influence the occurrence of these errors. The errors should therefore be combined with other types of data in a way that we can make inferences about the way these factors influence errors and malfunctions.
