What does a data scientist actually do?

What do you actually do? A data scientist’s job description can be very different depending on who you speak to. For me, the fundamental thing that defines a data scientist is the ability to identify and solve opportunities and problems and help make objective decisions based on data.

Day to day, I manage a team of data scientists whose purpose is to understand our customers so that we can provide them with the most relevant, personalised and timely experience possible. For realestate.com.au, this includes things like recommendations for someone’s next best property, providing an update on the property market specific to someone’s property, or providing tips to first home buyers or renters.
