About Novi Labs

Novi Labs is a US, venture-backed, rapidly growing artificial intelligence-driven company with an office in
Rotterdam, Netherlands. Our mission is to improve economic outcomes for our customers on their energy

The Oil & Gas sector has historically struggled to derive actionable insights from its vast data. Novi was founded by industry experts, data scientists, and experienced software engineers to help solve this problem.  Our expertise in building scalable, data-driven analytical applications positions us exceptionally well to help customers optimize multi-billion dollar annual capital investments.

Novi’s customers include innovative Oil & Gas operators and forward-thinking energy investors.  They invest hundreds of billions annually to find and develop energy assets. Novi improves outcomes on these investments by supporting better decisions through applied artificial intelligence and superior licensed proprietary and engineereddata – which reduces risk through data-driven optimization.  We simply help our clients choose the best way to invest their capital.

We pride ourselves on attracting great talent by offering a challenging, collaborative, and rewarding work
environment. We have a track record of delivering effective solutions to challenging problems and a reputation for building great software that our users love.


This is a key position within our development team in Rotterdam to help expand our advanced data & analytics platform for the global energy market. We have developed an extensive data platform that automatically gathers, cleans, transforms and enriches data relevant to this industry, so that customers can trust it for their insights and decision work flows.

This role is for an enthusiastic data scientist with a passion of working with data, who is not afraid to tackle complex data puzzles with a high degree of autonomy. Responsibilities include identifying the best algorithmic and/or ML approaches for a variety of different data projects, and deploy these within our data platform.

The right candidate must be ambitious, entrepreneurial, and a great fit with the team.

  • Test and improve our time series forecasting methods that produce production forecasts for millions of wells.
  • Identify and implement algorithms and ML-driven solutions for various other complex data puzzles we face to ensure we can deliver enriched data of the highest quality to our customers upon which they can reliably base their multi-million dollar investment decisions.

You will work with a team of passionate and bright data engineers and together develop solutions that are
effective, robust, and scalable. As a key member of the team, you will participate in fostering a culture of
