Key Responsibilities:

  • The ADSA program is centered around the Data Scientist Competencies. These are the competencies that must be developed and mastered to become a successful Data Scientist. There are 4 core competencies:
  • Data Science: We focus on developing expertise in the data science necessary to help our customers be successful, primarily with the DataRobot platform. Thus we focus first on classification, regression, time series, and anomaly detection, along with all the associated data preprocessing and algorithms. We also focus on developing proficiency in wrangling data with tools like Python and R. This competency is the one that will be most tailored to the individual.
  • Product: The Data Scientist has to be an expert on the functionality of the DataRobot platform, both with the GUI as well as with the Python and R clients.
  • Sales: To be a trusted advisor, the Data Scientist must be able to establish trust and build meaningful relationships with customers. This requires the ability to listen, empathize, and more.
  • Management Consulting: Sometimes a Data Scientist is advising an end-user, e.g. a business analyst or a data scientist, on a particular project. Other times they are consulting with the senior management, helping to create a vision for how machine learning can benefit the company’s bottom line. This requires understanding how the company generates value and identifying opportunities (use cases) to reduce costs or increase revenue, quantifying the impact of those use cases, and then prioritizing and planning the execution of those projects so that the customer realizes value.
