We believe in Data Scientists being T-shaped professionals

The T shape visualizes the idea that a successful career is based on the combination of deep technical expertise (the vertical bar) and wide and broad boundary-crossing skills (the horizontal bar).

Data scientists master the technical skills of data engineering, and know how to use data-warehouses, build a data pipeline and access Big Data cloud solutions. They have the analytical skills of machine learning, and can translate a business opportunity into a data-science problem, apply the data-analytic workflow to develop a model, and test and implement it in a Python environment.

Data scientists are also business savvy, understand how business models and strategies work, are able to manage data-science projects delivering results, and in general, know what it takes to get things done in large and complex organizations.
