The full stack Data Scientist is the much coveted poster-child hire for all data roles. This person (essentially a unicorn) has strong business acumen, statistical background, modelling capabilities and data engineering know-hows.
On one hand, the full stack Data Scientist is working with engineering teams to deploy models to production and on the other, distilling complex machine learning ideas to business stakeholders. I’m still trying to navigate and become more familiar with many of these skills. Building a holistic understanding of the entire data workflow has made me a better programmer, independent thinker and even understand my job better as a Data Scientist.
