How Not To Interview Data Scientists

#artificialintelligence

It's been almost a decade since'data scientist' became a thing. But even now, companies have a hard time getting a data science team up and running. Recruiting the right candidates are vital to building a solid data science team. The assessment for the data scientist role purely depends on the mindset and requirement of the company. Typically, data scientists are expected to have skills in four areas, including mathematics, machine learning, data science and business acumen.


Difference between data engineers and data scientists

Sometimes data engineers do DAD, sometimes data scientists do ETL, but it's rather rare, and when they do it, it's purely internal (the data engineer doing a bit of statistical analysis to optimize some database processes, the data scientist doing a bit of database management to manage a small, local, private database of summarized info (not used in production mode usually, though there are exceptions).

Although they certainly work together amicably and enjoy some overlap concerning expertise and experience, the two roles serve quite different purposes. Essentially, we are differentiating between Scientists who seek to understand the science behind their work, and Engineers who seek to build something that can be accessed by others. Both roles are extremely important, and at some companies, are interchangeable -- for example, Data Scientists at certain organizations may carry out the work of a Machine Learning engineer and vice versa. To make the distinction clear, I'll split the differences into 3 categories; 1) Responsibilities 2) Expertise 3) Salary Expectations. Data Scientists follow the Data Science Process, which may also be referred to as Blitzstein & Pfister workflow.
