Everything we do at CBS has a tremendous social and economic impact. Based on our independent and reliable information, key policy decisions are taken by government institutions in The Hague and Brussels. Provinces, municipalities and businesses as well as individual citizens benefit from our research results, which make the headlines every single day.
Our IT specialists develop, test and monitor the applications used by our researchers. They maintain our networks and work on innovative projects together with Google and Microsoft, among others. CBS is continually focused on innovation: we are working on a big data infrastructure that is both unique in the world and state of the art. We are engaging in ambitious IT projects at every level in the organisation, from the collection to the processing of our data and from automation to our own newsroom.
Big data is becoming increasingly important. As an information service provider and high-tech IT organisation, CBS regularly has job opportunities for innovative researchers and ambitious IT specialists whose aim is to pioneer at the forefront of their discipline.
At CBS, you will find people with different backgrounds working closely together: economists and software engineers, but also mathematicians, physicists, biologists, medical practitioners and chemists. You see them dressed in a variety of ways, from smart trousers to jeans and from suits to baggy sweaters. What they all have in common is a focus on research results of outstanding quality.
