You are a creative mind with a passion for planning, both the technology and the reality of business. You are keen to translate data science outcomes into business impact.

Your role as data scientist planning and forecasting

As believers in the future where data is the core and most decisions are made by machines, we are constantly developing ourselves and the techniques and methods we work with.
