  • A commitment to producing work that is visually appealing on the surface, but also draws you in and tells a clear, contextual story
  • An insatiable curiosity and a desire to visually explore data

What you will be doing:

  • Writing sophisticated SQL queries to extract data and build complex models
  • Collaborating with experts in machine learning and predictive analysis to gather data, explore and analyze the data, and develop solutions for the customer
  • Designing interactive data visualizations and software features that allow customers to interpret and explore their data in an intuitive manner
  • Presenting visualizations to prospective clients showcasing potential and generating excitement over data

As the ideal candidate, you:

  • Have a sense of humour

  • Communicate exceptionally well with management, peers, and clients
