An Insider's view of Bounteous

What does your typical day look like?

There is no typical day for a Data Scientist. Some days I am heads-down coding 80% of the time; others are filled with multiple client presentations, internal discussions, or even writing a blog post. Being able to utilize my data science knowledge and make an impact on clients' business is an incredibly rewarding experience for me.
