What are some things you learned at the company?

On the job learning isn’t just a role description, it’s a reality. In 6 months, I have learned Python scripting, HTML tagging, and API configuration. Colleagues taught me about NLG & NLP, Gross & Net Retention, and freshwater & saltwater eels. But most importantly, NS has taught me that we shouldn’t be afraid of data, data should be afraid of us.
