About the role:

As a Data Scientist Manager, you will:

The Data Scientist Manager thrives when constructing complex solutions that integrate data wrangling, visualization, and advanced modeling techniques into a seamless workflow using software development best practices in R, Python, or other scripting languages. They are comfortable working with APIs, web scraping, and SQL/no-SQL databases. It is not uncommon for our Data Scientists to automate business workflows while integrating stochastic/numeric algorithms in the process. Creating and modifying predictive algorithms to uncover and answer business questions makes us tick. Our products are usually delivered as a scheduled deployment, markdown report, dashboard, shiny application, or API. In contrast to a Senior, the Manager will develop more autonomy to develop solutions and will lead others, take on administrative tasks, perform support roles, and get involved in new business development.
