What Kind of Data-Driven Professional Does Your Startup Need?

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

What kind of Data Scientist / Engineer will be successful at different stages of a company?  

For example, in an early phase where there's not much of a line between Data Scientist / Data Engineer / Software Engineer it's likely you'll want more of a Software Engineer with some machine learning /stats skills, however, as the company grows and tasks become more specialized (and less raw data skills are required), someone with only academic experience or otherwise highly specialized may perform better.  

Find out what you need to know from someone who's lived it!
