  • Collaborate with business and science colleagues to understand the business problem and collect relevant data. Provide statistically rigorous analysis of data that contributes to business decision-making. Effectively communicate your results to colleagues and business leaders.
  • A day in the life:
  • Meet with colleagues to discuss how the business currently works. Discuss ways in which the customer experience could be improved, and what data you'd need to test your hypotheses. Meet with data and business intelligence engineers to build an efficient data pipeline using SQL, spark and other big data tools.
