Hire the best Data Scientist
What is a Data Scientist and what do they do?
Data scientists take raw data and produce meaningful information that companies can use to improve the business and effective decision making. They extract, analyse, and interpret large amounts of data from a wide range of sources, using algorithms, data mining, artificial intelligence (AI), and statistical tools. Data mining models are used to test the most appropriate methods needed for the use of large projects. A data scientist is required to develop complex solutions using a range of data science techniques, whilst taking into account any ethical considerations, whilst also supporting the capability building within the company. Other than working closely with the data, the role requires the person to create clear and precise reports that tell a compelling story of the customer or client journey, and how this impacts the business. They must also find ways to apply knowledge, data, code, and models to other organisational roles, such as in HR and Marketing departments.
