  • Communicate complex data-driven insights and recommendations to technical and non-technical stakeholders through clear visualizations and presentations.

  • Mentor less experienced data scientists.


  • 5+ years of hands-on, professional experience in data science, machine learning, or a related field, with a proven track record of delivering impactful data science projects.

  • 3+ years of experience developing algorithms and models from the experimental and prototyping phases all the way through to their use in customer-facing solutions.

  • Proficient in SQL, Python, and TensorFlow with an in-depth knowledge of data structures and database operations.

  • Strong problem-solving skills and the ability to work on complex issues requiring innovative solutions.

  • Effective communication and collaboration skills when partnering with stakeholders and team members to resolve ambiguity in data science projects.

  • Experience mentoring data scientists to improve code quality and promote innovation.
