Data Science Team Leader
How long have you been in the company, what is your role?
I joined Intersec in August 2014. Time goes by quickly! I am lead data scientist, in charge of our "Datascience" team within the R&D department.
What does your job consist in?
The team's main missions are to perform research activities and lead studies to determine the best way to address a question around data/analytics, as well as to share expertise internally and externally on our analytics solutions.
My role consists in managing the team, both in terms of organizing the activity (prioritize topics, display them within the team, ...) and in terms of human management (help people to achieve their goals, to acquire new skills, and globally to enjoy working in our company).
What do you like best about your job?
Clearly, the interest I find in the topics we are working on. I particularly like to have the opportunity to work on concrete topics around geolocation and human mobility, which are not that common for data scientists.
I also appreciate working in a company whose size allows everyone to know everybody, to feel committed to the same goals, in a word to be part of the adventure!
