What Do Data Scientists Do?

I recently completed a data science bootcamp and have started working as a data scientist at a fintech startup. I am obviously happy and relieved to be gainfully employed again.

But one thing I’ve noticed since I started working is that a good amount of people including my dad (Hi Dad!) have asked me, “What’s data science and what is it exactly that you do?” Normally, I would refer them to my blog but I realized I have never written on this before. I’ve written plenty of articles about specific data science and machine learning concepts but I never personally defined what the profession and industry mean to me. So let’s rectify that right now.
