More than anything, I really value the opportunity to play with the newest technologies, a state of the art cloud architecture – and other competent and curious data scientists. We get to ride this wave and get good at it.

RelinkLabs AS (http://www.relinklabs.com) announced today that Bjarne Ørum Fruergaard has joined the firm to lead the data science team in order to accelerate and scale the production of the firm’s data based insights for recruitment and HR technology vendors.

RelinkLabs could probably not find a better match, considering Ørum Fruergaard’s strong academic background with a PhD in machine learning and his experience as Senior Data Scientist in Adform where he also, with great success, dealt with data with a distinctly human edge.

Bjarne joins RelinkLabs as Lead Data Scientist to lead the three man strong data science team. “I was lucky enough to be able to choose between several offers, and RelinkLabs ticked all the boxes”, says Bjarne. “I wanted to work for a startup, an organization where data was the key to the business model and not an afterthought,” he recollects.

“More than anything, I really value the opportunity to play with the newest technologies, a state of the art cloud architecture – and other competent and curious data scientists. We get to ride this wave and get good at it.”

“One of our first challenges will be to recruit ‘data engineers’ – backend developers who can help us in the data science team with tooling,” he adds. “A good data engineer can make life so much easier for us – allowing us to experiment – and sometimes fail – faster and better. It is absolutely necessary for a lean data science function – so I’ll take the opportunity to ask anyone reading this to send backend developers with an interest for data science our way.” “They may, like me, find exactly the opportunity they are looking for here with RelinkLabs.”

“We are very happy to get Bjarne on board for this pivotal role” says CEO Ståle Fredlund Husby.

“His experience and knowledge from AI and machine learning enable us to dramatically increase the value of our products. Furthermore, we are working hard on bridging the gap between data science and engineering, putting science at the center of all engineering and product processes. Having both an MA in Computer Science and a PHD in Machine Learning this is a concept Bjarne also is passionate about.”
