  • Facilitate knowledge transfer across the business between Product Delivery and Commercial teams.
  • Recommend and implement enhancements that standardize and streamline processes, assure data quality and reliability, and reduce processing time to meet client expectations.

What you bring.

  • Experience using python in a data context (iterators, pandas, scikit-learn, etc.)
  • Are passionate about innovating new ways to answer novel problems
  • Are comfortable with being given the self-autonomy to work independently and experiment with new ideas and new ways to design and implement data science solutions to advance business goals
