The Team

 

The data science team, as is very common, has a responsibility for both developing our capabilities in machine learning, and deep analysis of our data, while at the same time servicing a large amount of data requests to enable the business to make decisions, fulfill its regulatory requirements and so on.

 

With the expansion of the data warehouse the range of questions that we can answer increased, but so too has the complexity of the business. To keep on top of the day to day reporting is consuming enough that it is difficult to progress our more ambitious projects.

 

On the plus side, by having almost all of our data in the warehouse we have significantly dropped the barrier to entry to solving data problems. You don’t need to be a data ninja to get the result you need. Simply data literate and with a good business understanding.

 

This presents a great opportunity to compliment the data science team with an analyst, who knows the business very well, and who we can show the data ropes to. This analyst would focus on the day-to-day questions supporting the colleagues they have already been working with. All the while upskilling in the tools of data science.
