Ranging from UX design to the application of AI and Machine Learning to our products. We offer an opportunity to learn, grow, and develop your skills with a diverse team that fits your talent and interests.

We are Dataprovider.com – a fast-growing data company with over 40 people. Our mission is to structure the world's biggest goldmine of data: the Internet. We index over 200 variables from more than 765 million hostnames across the globe and structure this web data in a clean and searchable database. Numerous notable companies, like GoDaddy, M Science, and PayPal, utilize our products and solutions for business intelligence, data analytics, and marketing research purposes.

What we do

Every month, our advanced proprietary software indexes hundreds of millions of web pages and processes and structures this information into more than 200 relevant data fields, grouped into categories such as geolocation, e-commerce, marketing, technical aspects, hosting and much more. PayPal, GoDaddy, M Science, Dun & Bradstreet, Statistics Netherlands are just a few of the leading companies in the payment, financial, domain and brand protection industries that are using our data. And our data is also used by Governments and statistical offices for in-depth research and tracking and measuring the digital economy.


What you'll do

Our experienced team will guide you through your traineeship, where you'll gain and develop skills in technology detection, front-end and back-end development, data science, content creation, and communication. It is a great way to kick off your career. 

Every three months, you'll be switching teams to learn more about all the different processes that take place in a company and even on the internet on a global scale. You will see four different teams this way. The traineeship is for one year. In the last month, we will discuss the possibilities of your future within Dataprovider.

Dataprovider.com transforms the internet into an ever-growing structured database

The web is the world’s greatest information source - literally and figuratively. It contains more valuable information than all annual reports and trend analyses rolled into one. However, the web is also the world’s greatest source of information chaos: that’s why it’s difficult to extract qualitative data.

Founded in Groningen in 2012, Dataprovider.com has been structuring relevant digital actions into concrete insights that are used worldwide by leading organizations such as PayPal, Statistics Netherlands, United Nations, GoDaddy, Mollie, Takeaway.com and the investment industry. We’re growing fast and we’re always on the lookout for new talent!

Our team


Our team consists of a wide range of professionals: data scientists, data support engineers, developers, designers, account managers and the list goes on. Most of the people at Dataprovider.com have been working here for long: they started while they were students and have been an inseparable part of the team ever since. Our slogan is “Work hard, work together and help each other out, always.” When we aren’t working hard, we’re eating ice cream (anytime of the day or year) and playing board games, ping-pong or American pool.
