Data Strategist

Job description

🤖 The Job

Machine Learning & AI hold no secrets for you? Great! You speak better English than you speak Python? Interesting! You can translate lines of code to Return on Investment? Wonderful! On top of that, your creative mind spots new opportunities faster than our engineers can solve them? Nice to meet you!

As a Data Strategist you form the bridge between the engineering team and the client. An important part of your job is collecting business requirements from the client and translating these into functional ones to get the engineers and their models up and running. Coffee and data serve as input for the engineer to build the model, the output it generates will be translated by you into ROI for the client. You’ll present these results to all stakeholders and tailor your communication accordingly.

What makes this job really interesting is the wide variety of stakeholders. One time you’ll be discussing monetary impact while the next day you might be explaining more technical concepts behind the used models. One thing’s for sure, you won’t be bored!
