Data Scientist Jobs

Organisations are increasingly using and collecting larger amounts of data during their everyday operations and Data Scientist Jobs write programs to analyse data sets. They are normally in charge of statistical analysis, machine learning and predictive modelling and turn raw data into meaningful information that organisations can use to improve their businesses. 

This is a rapidly developing job and covers predicting what people will buy to using data to find patterns and help solve the problems faced by businesses in innovative and imaginative ways.

You'll extract, analyse and interpret large amounts of data from a range of sources, using algorithmic, data mining, artificial intelligence, machine learning and statistical tools, in order to make it accessible to businesses. You will then present your results using clear and engaging language.

Data scientists are in high demand across a number of sectors, as businesses require people with the right combination of technical, analytical and communication skills.

Duties and daily checklist for the Data Scientist

As a data scientist, you'll need to:

  • Identify issues and use data to propose solutions for effective decision making
  • Build algorithms and design experiments to merge, manage, interrogate and extract data to supply tailored reports to colleagues, customers or the wider organisation
  • Use machine learning tools and statistical techniques to produce solutions to problems
  • Test data mining models to select the most appropriate ones for use on a project
  • Maintain clear and coherent communication, both verbal and written, to understand data needs and report results
  • Create clear reports that tell compelling stories about how customers or clients work with the business
  • Assess the effectiveness of data sources and data-gathering techniques and improve data collection methods
  • Conduct research from which you'll develop prototypes and proof of concepts
  • look for opportunities to use insights/datasets/code/models across other functions in the organisation

Core skillsets for data scientists 

The skill set a data scientist should have, would need to cover several science related things. For example, programming languages (R, Python), different techniques that are a valid approach, being familiar with machine learning methods, understand and know multivariable calculus and linear algebra and deal with imperfections in data. Being able to communicate all imperfections and calculus is incredibly important for these types of developers.
