4 top employers hiring data scientists in San Diego
Oct 24, 2018 - Bree Burris
Data scientists, named ‘sexiest job of the 21st century’ by Harvard Business Review, are making their mark in startups and well-established corporations alike. With the know-how and curiosity to make discoveries in Big Data, data scientists bring structure to large amounts of formless data and make analysis possible. In a competitive landscape where challenges keep changing and data never stops flowing, data scientists help decision makers shift from ad hoc analysis to an ongoing conversation with data.
But what kind of person is capable of all of this? HBR suggests we think of a data scientist as a hybrid of data hacker, analyst, communicator, and trusted adviser. The combination is extremely powerful, and rare, and businesses large and small are in need of this expertise.
