  • Working with clients to understand their needs: Understanding their current processes and pain points and identifying which of these can be framed as a tractable data science problem.
  • Wrangling/cleaning government or client data: from extracting data from SQL databases and making API calls to scraping websites and cleaning survey data.
  • Designing, testing, improving various algorithms: From OOTB scikit-learn algorithms to bespoke ones.
  • Synthesizing, visualizing, and communicating results: Dashboards, plots, interactive viz, presentations, and reports
  • Working with other team members to test and deploy these solutions.

Qualifiquations
