World Data Lab

World Data Lab (WDL) is a data enterprise working with global brands to make data-driven decisions. Our core products are granular spending and demographic forecasts for every country, providing projections until 2030 and beyond.

WDL has worked with Fortune 500 companies and other globally recognized companies including McKinsey, Deloitte, CITIBANK, HSBC, Unilever, Hershey’s Chocolate and more.

WDL has carried out flagship projects such as the World Poverty Clock with leading public institutions and international organisations including the Asian Development Bank, the Government of Germany, the European Space Agency and UNICEF. WDL also maintains a close partnership with Singularity University. WDL’s work has been featured by global media (including the Wall Street Journal, Washington Post, the Economist, the Financial Times, CNN, and BBC).

What is it Actually Like to Work at World Data Lab?

Our office is located inside the Impact Hub Vienna (affectionately known as “the hub”), a co-shared working space in the 7th district. Although we have our separate office, you’ll have access to the co-working space and be able to enjoy the “hubby” vibe. You’ll also be able to participate in many of the networking events the Hub puts on.

When you walk into the WDL office, you’re walking into a room full of friends. There’ll be music playing, and likely a discussion about which movie could be worse than “White Chicks.” Our social media manager is the office movie buff and will have you know – there is nothing worse.

When you start working, you’ll be contributing to projects that you’ll want to tell your friends about! When someone asks you “what do you do?” you’ll be able to answer “I work with a team that models and visualizes data.” You’ll also help us develop new products and craft stories that bring the data to life.

To put it bluntly, WDL is a job experience you won’t want to miss.

One moment we might be doing impromptu karaoke with a voice changing microphone and the next moment we’re planning a new feature for our digital data products. Our lead data scientist can teach you how to juggle and also teach you how to use Google Earth Engine. This is a place where you can have your cake, and eat it too (almost all of it)!.
